The majority of motor vehicle collisions could be avoided if vehicles’ operators drove more responsibly. Drivers can be easily distracted by things such as conversations with passengers, playing with the radio, eating or drinking and talking on cellular phones.
Even if you are a responsible driver and do not give in to distractions, that does not guarantee that you cannot be involved in a collision due to the fault of another careless driver. Knowing how to drive isn’t enough with so many vehicles on the road.
However, being wary of other drivers and knowing how to drive defensively can improve one’s chances of avoiding an auto accident.
