Accident Prevention Strategies

Written by Mark Anson


This is how the perceived risk is managed, knowing how to modify your driving so that you control the risk before it happens, not after the event starts.

A good example is when following other traffic a proactive driver slows downs when they observe another car may need to slow down instead of waiting for the car in front to slow down.

5 GREAT STRATEGIES TO HELP YOU STAY OUT OF TROUBLE.

  1. STOP AT LEAST ONE CAR BEHIND WHEN YOU STOP.
  2. FOLLOW A MINIMUM OF 3 SECONDS BEHIND THE CAR IN FRONT.
  3. NEVER TRUST ANOTHER DRIVER WILL STOP AT A STOP SIGN OR RED LIGHT.
  4. NEVER TRUST THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF AN INDICATOR.
  5. SHARE YOU PLAN WITH OTHER DRIVERS (INDICATE TO TELL OTHER DRIVERS WHAT YOU PLAN TO DO - NOT WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY STARTED TO DO)
