There are a number of measures you can take when driving on the road to help prevent an accident occurring. By driving safely on the roads you are helping to reduce the chances of sustaining an injury yourself and causing someone else to sustain an injury. Some of the ways you can ensure that you avoid causing a road traffic collision are as follows:
? Driving at a safe distance from the car in front at a speed and distance appropriate for the road. The faster you are travelling the greater the gap you need to leave between your car and the vehicle in front; this is because stopping distances are increased vastly at higher speeds. You need to ensure that you have the capacity to stop quickly in the event of an unseen hazard to avoid crashing into the back of the car in front.
? Paying greater attention to hazards on the road so that even if no one else is taking care on the roads you can be more vigilant and prevent yourself being involved in a collision. Particular care should be taken near junctions you are not able to predict whether someone else is going to try and pull out; if you take care near any junctions you may be able to stop in time if someone tries to pull out therefore avoiding a collision which could otherwise have resulted in an injury.
