Tips on How to Avoid Car Accidents

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on June 14, 2013

Dallas car accidents occur every day from fender-benders to fatal hit-and-runs, and many occur due to the negligence of a driver. It’s important to refresh yourself on how to be a safe driver, so you can prevent being in a Dallas car accident. Here are four tips on how you can avoid getting in a car accident:

  • Don’t use the fast lane: Through driving in the center lane, or right lane of multi-lane roads, it’s easier to have a way out if you need to pull over to the shoulder or suddenly switch lanes. Most car accidents occur in the far left fast lane.
  • Watch your blind spots: Your mirrors can’t show you everything around you. It’s important to turn your head to look to see if there is anything in the lane next to you before switching lanes. Try to stay out of other driver’s blind spots as much as possible, especially truckers to avoid getting in a truck accident.
  • Have control of your steering wheel: It’s vital to keep your hands at 9 and 3 on the steering wheel to make sure you have maximum vehicle control if you’re forced into quick maneuvering to avoid a car accident. To give you even more control of the wheel, move your seat close enough to the wheel so that your wrist can rest on the wheel with your arm outstretched, and your back against the seat.
  • Take good care of your car: You can judge drivers by looking at their cars, if they are dirty and damaged, it’s likely the driver is inattentive. Also, it’s important to stick to the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule to make sure your car will stop and steer properly when you need it to.

Even after driving carefully, you can still become the victim of a Dallas car accident due to inattentive drivers. If you or a loved one have been injured in a Dallas car accident, contact the Law Offices of W.T. Johnson today and set-up your free, no-obligation consultation.
