Minor Auto Accident Checklist by Miracle Body and Paint
Avoiding Common Auto Accidents PART 2
Miracle Body and Paint has been providing quality collision repair and great customer service in San Antonio since 1986. Although we’re happy to repair any vehicle which is involved in an auto accident, we would rather want our customers to avoid any accident or mishaps as much as possible. Here are some helpful tips to help you avoid auto collision.
- It’s not wise to expect other drivers to always follow the stop signs and signal lights. It is always best to drive defensively at all times. When entering or leaving an intersection, stop and look around to make sure that the other drivers are following the traffic rules and regulations.
- Texting or talking on a mobile phone while driving can easily distract you on the road. It is a fact that you will not be able to put your 100 percent attention to whatever it is that is going around you when you are using your handheld device while driving. An accident can happen in a split second. No amount of text or phone call is worth your life or a life of another. Avoid using cell phones to send a text message or make a call while driving and also avoid riding in a car with a driver who does. To be safe, just pull over first.
- Focus on driving and never get distracted by children or other people riding in the vehicle. Reaching back to help someone or trying to find something you dropped on the floor is dangerous. The littlest swerve over the center line can lead to serious injury or even death.
- If you are riding a motorcycle, always keep in mind that the injuries incurred from a motorcycle accident are generally more severe as compared to a car accident. You have every right to be on the road, but whether it’s your fault or the other guy’s, you’re probably going to get a lot of injury from it. Reduce chance of injury in a motorcycle accident by dressing properly, wearing a proper helmet, obeying the rules, and making sure other drivers know you are there.
