How to Reduce Your Chance of Rear-End Collision


A rear-end car accident can cause a serious injury that may result in missed time at work, multiple doctor’s appointments, and other inconveniences. You can reduce your risk of a car accident by paying close attention to the traffic around you. Leave a gap of at least one car length for every 10 miles per hour between your car and the vehicle ahead of you. More than 75 percent of rear-end collisions could have been avoided just by maintaining proper following distances. If you’re concerned about a driver who is tailgating your vehicle, consider switching lanes or pulling over if possible.
