Have you ever been rear ended? You’re not alone.
If you’ve ever been in an accident, odds are more likely than not that you were rear ended. This is because there is no other type of collision that occurs with as much frequency, one every eight seconds, in the United States.
In order to avoid this happening to you Legends has three recommendations:
1. Apply your brakes slowly and with frequency – This allows the other drivers on the road to know that a stop or turn is upcoming.
2. Turn your signal on well in advance – Once again, this gives the driver behind you ample opportunity to understand your intentions instead of being surprised at the last moment.
3. Be aware of your surroundings – For example, if another driver is tailgating you it’s probably worth it to switch lanes and let them pass, as opposed to putting yourself in a dangerous situation.
Following these three simple tips will ensure that you have a much less stress filled and more enjoyable driving experience.
