Ways to Avoid A Car Wreck # 6

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.

#6: Use your brake lights to be more visible to those behind you. If there is a vehicle behind you when you need to slow down, tap your brake pedal very slightly a few seconds before braking, assuming there is time to do so safely. When stopped in traffic or at a light, tap your brake a few times as another vehicle approaches from behind. This is particularly helpful if the drivers behind you are looking into the sun.
