Getting behind the wheel of a car comes with a lot of responsibility and a great amount of threat as well. Even the safest of drivers have to worry about the other drivers on the road. In 2011, there were nearly 300,000 traffic crashes in the state of Ohio. More recently, a three vehicle car accident seriously injured five people in Pickaway County.

Unfortunately, car accidents are something that happen every day. However, all car accidents do not have to be deadly, or even cause injury to those involved. For motorists, it is important to always practice safe and defensive driving to avoid car accidents. The Ohio insurance agents at Wilber-Price Insurance Group want to be sure their neighbors in Ohio are protected and not involved or seriously injured in auto accidents.

Here are some tips for safe driving:

  •     Always be aware of the traffic in front of, behind and around your vehicle.
  •     Obey posted speed limits.
  •     Maintain a good following distance and do not “tailgate” other drivers.
  •     Use turn signals and obey traffic safety rules in the area.
  •     Avoid all distractions such as cell phones or a radio that is turned too loudly.
  •     Drive at a slower speed during times of bad weather.
  •     Never drive while impaired.
  •     Always wear a seat belt.

No matter how safe a driver is, there are always the other drivers on the road to be aware of. Many individuals choose to take a defensive driving course in their local community to become better aware of safe-driving practices. While drivers in Ohio are required by law to obtain Ohio auto insurance, often the minimum policies are not comprehensive enough. Be sure to review auto insurance policies for optimal protection. Adequate auto insurance will cover liability for personal injury and damage to the vehicles involved. And remember, a defensive driving course will count for a deductible on your premium.
