Prevent_AccidentsOne second. It’s not a lot of time, but it may be long enough to save a life.

Research has shown that 80% of all auto accidents could be avoided if the people involved in the accident had just one more second to react.

How can you give yourself that extra second - or longer - when you’re behind the wheel?

  1. Look farther down the road in order to see potentially dangerous situations sooner.
  2. Keep more stopping distance between you and vehicles in front of you.
  3. Slow down when you encounter poor road or weather conditions.
  4. Stay focused on driving, not talking on the phone, changing radio stations or disciplining the kids in the back seat.

Follow these suggestions, and you’ll give yourself the extra time you need to reduce the chances of an accident.
