We all know that newer cars are safer than ever, but remember they are still driven by human beings and, humans by design make mistakes.
Follow some of these safety tips while driving and one day it may be able to save your life.
#1 ADJUST YOUR MIRRORS TO HELP ELIMINATE THE BLIND SPOT
This is such a frequent cause of accidents that most makes and models today adopted fancy radar sensors or camera systems capable of detecting other vehicles in your blind spots and if you own one and you enter a blind spot with a car there you will hear a extremely loud beep/scream as you swerve in terror and/or crash your vehicle anyway. If your car doesn't have these fancy upgrades adjust your mirror so you don't see ANY of your car to give you the most field of vision as you can get. Remember, look over your shoulder and don't be lazy.
#2 PAY MORE ATTENTION TO YOUR SURROUNDINGS THEN ROAD SIGNS
We're not saying that you should ignore stoplights and road signs, but that you shouldn't rely on them to make every decision for you. Just because you had the right of way at an intersection won't make you any less dead if you pull in front of an 18 wheeler. Be safe out there and use your eyes and head as you see fit. I mean come on...we are all adults here so let's act like it!
#3. TRY DRIVING WITH YOUR HEADLIGHTS ON AT ALL TIMES
As you can see in the above picture it is MUCH easier to see the a car in low light conditions with the headlights on as opposed to the headlights off. It also isn't a ticket to drive with them on and never a bad idea to be more safe then sorry. According to a recent study, you can reduce your risk of being involved in an accident by up to 32 percent simply by driving with your headlights on at all times and I don't know about you but I'd rather have the odds in my favor when my life's in danger.
