Top Driving Mistakes

Top Driving Mistakes - Worldwide motor vehicle collisions lead to significant death and disability from top driving mistakes. There is also a significant financial costs to both society and the individuals involved. Car accidents are no joke and owners should always know the importance of insurance, even if it’s costly.

The first mistake that people make is not using their turn signals. Be a smart and thoughtful driver and use those turn signals. It makes life last so much longer when we can avoid automobile crashes all together.

Second is the fact that tailgating will not get you to your destination any faster, that is of course unless you are heading for your “Final Destination.” Please back off and give the people in front of you some room to breathe. If you really must get there faster, try and leave your house a little earlier.

Third is that silly little thing called “Stopping before turning” on a red light. So many people seem to have forgotten that this is not a “slow down and look” kind of maneuver, it is critical that you come to a complete stop. There are so many accidents as a result of this one little thing.

Fourth is the way to handle multiple cars at a four way stop. The law states the first one there or the car to your right goes first. Many times people hurtle up to the stop slamming on the brakes at the last instant so that it appears they got there first.

Fifth thing people do wrong behind the wheel is to forget that they have to share the road. Some drivers think the road is for them. In fact, there are many accidents that involve pedestrians as well.
