Ways to Avoid A Car Wreck # 8

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.

#8: Avoid driving next to, or in front of, passenger vehicles towing trailers. If these drivers are inexperienced at towing they might underestimate the time it takes to stop their vehicles with the extra weight of the trailer causing them to rear-end the vehicle in front of them ... take a turn too fast and lose control of their trailer. .. or momentarily forget that they are towing a trailer and attempt to merge in from of another car before the trailer has cleared it.
