    How to Avoid Accidents While Driving

    How to Avoid Accidents While Driving

    Steps

    1. Do not drive tired. Get plenty of sleep before you drive.
    2. Do not drive impaired. Don't drink alcohol, take drugs, or drive when you're sick.
    3. Do not drive distracted. Turn off your cell phone, make sure your makeup is okay before you leave, read your newspaper before you leave, set your radio dial before you leave. In other words, don't let go of the steering wheel to eat, drink, or mess with anything.
    4. Do drive in a space cushion. The space cushion leaves you a lot of space in front, a lot of space behind you, and plenty of space on each side. If you do have to maneuver suddenly, there will be plenty of space to do so.
    5. Keep your eyes moving. Don't fix your gaze dead ahead and stay with it...check your mirrors often, check your space cushion often. You need to get and maintain a picture of everything that's developing outside the car.
    6. Make a habit of using your turn signal. If other drivers understand what you're doing, they're less likely to get in your way.
    7. Know your vehicle intimately. How far is the the front bumper from that post or telephone pole? How far does the right mirror stick out? Are the tires aired up properly? When you expect certain performance from your car (a sudden move should happen just like you intend it to) make sure you're familiar enough with the car to get the performance you expect. Make sure the car is serviced properly. Tires, engine, lights, etc.
    8. The difficult part: self control. Let that jerk pass you. Don't worry about showing off. Who cares how fast your car can go? So what if you have to wait an extra light to get through the intersection. What does it matter if that idiot blows his horn? So what if you decide to let the bicycle cross the street? It's no big deal if the truck merges in first. In other words, relax. Driving is not at all about competition.

    Tips

    * Always wear a seatbelt. If you have other people -or pets- with you in the car make sure everyone has a belt on and the animal is safe. Keep it in back not on the front seat.
    * Driving too slowly in the "fast lane" is a major cause of others road rage!
    * "Move to the RIGHT for sirens and lights!" If you see an emergency vehicle approaching from behind you with lights flashing and siren sounding, move your vehicle to the right, apply your brakes slowly and steadily and be prepared to come to a complete stop. Once all emergency vehicles (there may be more than one) have passed you, return to normal driving.

    Warnings

    * Learn to drive. While there is a lot of intuitive stuff that goes into driving, there's no substitute for knowing what you're doing.
    * Signal your intentions. Turn on your turn signal well ahead of your turn.
    * Do not take anything for granted.
    * Don't pretend you're in a video game.
    * Adjust your seat and mirrors to comfortable and convenient positions BEFORE you drive- constantly fiddling with these while driving can be a distraction.
