Increase Your Safety by Driving Defensively

Car Accidents

As you may be well aware, driving on New Jersey roads can mean you are constantly surrounded by hundreds of other drivers at a time. Even though you may be the safest driver on the road, unfortunately you are still at risk because of the actions of others. At Lee Law Firm, LLC, we understand the complexities of car accidents and have helped many people overcome difficult circumstances.

According to GEICO, you can be a defensive driver to better protect yourself, your passengers and other drivers on the road. Here are five simple tips to help you become a better defensive driver:

  • Scan the road: When you are driving, your eyes should always be fixed on the road ahead. However, you should also scan your surroundings in an effort to recognize potential dangers.
  • Stay focused: One of the biggest and costliest mistakes you can make while driving is to become distracted. Anything from eating, talking and manipulating electronics are all considered distractions.
  • Plan your route: Take the time to map out a route to your destination before getting behind the wheel. If you are traveling to an unfamiliar place, do a little research and make sure your directions are accessible.
  • Be courteous: Do not allow yourself to become angry, aggressive or offensive to other drivers on the road. This kind of behavior is dangerous and can quickly spiral out of control and endanger your life as well as the lives of those around you.
  • Watch the brake: Never follow another vehicle too closely, and if you are sitting in traffic always maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. Brake early to avoid having to slam on your brakes or swerve out of the way which can cause an accident.

By following these suggestions, you can be a defensive driver and better protect yourself and other drivers. For more information about car accidents, visit our web page.
