Accidents aren’t only inconvenient, they are dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were approximately 6 million car crashes in the United States. Of these 6 million crashes, 30 percent resulted in injuries and 1 percent in death. These are frightening consequences of an accident

To protect yourself against these consequences, consider these tips from an Atlanta truck accident attorney:  

  • Always wear your seat belt, even if you are only going a short distance.
  • Drive at the speed limit. Do not drive slower or faster than the limit because both could lead to an accident.
  • Know where you are going before you start your trip to avoid distractions like signs, maps, etc.
  • Keep your eyes on the road at all times.
  • Never drink alcoholic beverages and drive.
  • Always check your blind spot before changing lanes.
  • Make sure you are in good health. Some medical conditions may increase your risk for an accident.
  • Have your car regularly checked for problems. Faulty brakes or faulty tires may cause an accident.
  • Stop driving if you are sleepy.
