There is probably no way to completely eliminate the chances of an injury accident on the road but driving cautiously ensures that those chances are substantially lower.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) February 12, 2020
A January 26 article on the Times of San Diego reports on a traffic collision between two motorists on Route 76 in which one of the drivers became pinned in her overturned vehicle. Fortunately, rescue workers were able to free the woman before taking her to a nearby hospital to be treated for moderate injuries. Los Angeles-based personal injury firm Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock says that it is too soon to know the exact cause of this accident but notes aggressive or inattentive driving very often plays a role in causing traffic accidents.
Legal Defenders says that it is all too common for accidents to occur in areas and times of heavy traffic. Naturally, the personal injury firm adds, the acts of some drivers are sometimes misperceived as severe inconveniences – like accelerating too slowly when a light turns green – and annoyed drivers might become agitated and drive more aggressively. It is at this point, the firm continues, that behavior becomes far more likely to cause a collision. The firm says that, should the collision be with another vehicle, the forces at work can be catastrophic for all parties involved. The harm can obviously be magnitudes worse if a collision is with a cyclist or a pedestrian.
The law firm says that there are two simple ways to minimize the chances of causing a dangerous collision: practicing safe driving habits and remaining patient on the road. Legal Defenders notes that there is probably no way to completely eliminate the chances of an injury accident on the road but driving cautiously ensures that those chances are substantially lower. The law firm notes that, in reality, there is no amount of saved time on a road trip that is worth the potential cost of harming another person or oneself, or even being responsible for damages in a minor fender-bender – especially since the saved time rarely exceeds a few minutes. While it very definitely can be frustrating to sit in traffic after a long day away from home, turning to aggressive driving practices is never the answer. Drivers should keep calm any way they can. Relaxing music works for many. However, Legal Defenders asks that readers have their music ready to play before driving – fumbling with a smartphone or car radio is yet another hazard.
