Stay Safe Behind the Wheel
Each year driver fatigue, distraction or impairments, and road and weather conditions are among the top causes of car accidents. Keep in mind that crashes also occur more often late at night, on weekends, during rush hour, and peak holiday travel times.
Stay as safe as possible and remember to follow tips from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
- NEVER Drive Distracted – keep your cell phone out of reach, and avoid the temptation of sending a quick text or checking your email.
- NEVER Drive Aggressively– avoid tailgating and excessive speeding. Obey traffic signals, and keep your emotions in check if you encounter an aggressive driver.
- NEVER Drive Drowsy – if you're feeling sleepy, pull off the road at a safe place, and stay parked until you are alert, or arrange an alternate form of transportation.
- NEVER Drive Under the Influence – drugs and alcohol generally account for around one-third of car accident deaths each year in the United States. Arrange a designated driver or figure out another way home before you drink.
