Ways to Avoid A Car Wreck # 5

Columbus, Ohio. According to personal injury attorney, David A. Bressman, nearly 40,000 people die each year in car wrecks. Further, of the nearly 6 million car wrecks yearly, almost 50% involve an injury. The best way to avoid injury is drive safely and prudently. This, of course, is obvious but too few "experts" give any meaning to driving safely and prudently. The following series is designed to give you some practical pointers on HOW to do this.

#5: Look through the car ahead of you. Most drivers focus on the back of the vehicle in from of them when they are on crowded roads. If that driver brakes or swerves suddenly, you might have little time to react. It is better to look through the rear window and front windshield of the car you are trailing to keep an eye on the vehicle ahead of it (assuming that tinted windows or some other elements of the vehicle's design do not block your view). This will provide more warning if there is a problem on the road ahead.
