Driving safe during rush hour
This tragic accident happened just after 7 a.m. on Thursday, January 5.
Here are some tips on driving safely during rush hour from Direct Auto & Life Insurance.
– Pay attention to what’s going on around you. With the road more crowded and tensions higher than they typically are, you’ll want to take extra care to avoid distracted driving. Send any texts or emails you need to send before you hit the road, and if you don’t have time for breakfast before you leave for work, think about eating at your desk instead of behind the wheel.
– Plan your commute. If rush hour drives you crazy, think about plotting your route so you’re taking a back way instead of a cluttered thoroughfare. Maybe if you leave a bit earlier, you can avoid most of the rush-hour traffic. There are always ways to modify your commute to make it less painful.
– Don’t drive aggressively. Weaving in and out of traffic is a good way to make people mad at you, and put yourself and others in danger. Go with the flow of traffic. It will save you stress in the end.
Some accidents can’t be prevented, but some can. Negligent drivers make the roads an even more dangerous place. If you are a victim in an accident caused by the negligence of someone else, there’s help.
