5/23/2011In the article, Tailgating: A Surprising Danger on Atlanta Highways, I discuss how tailgating can lead to chain reaction car crashes.
A chain reaction car crash is a multi-vehicle crash that occurs when there is a car wreck in a congested area. The car wreck creates an obstacle and in high traffic situations, drivers have no time to react to avoid the crash. Drivers and their passengers may sustain serious injuries from multiple impacts. Because chain-reaction crashes often involve high speeds and read-end crashes, chain reaction car crashes may result in death, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, and head injuries.
How can you help prevent chain-reaction crashes?
- Avoid tailgating. Tailgating is the primary cause of chain reaction crashes.
- If you are involved in a crash, try to get your car off of the road so it doesn't create a hazard for other drivers. If you can't move it, turn on lights or blinkers so you can remain visible.
- Slow down in low-visibility situations.
