The safer our roads, the fewer crashes we will have to read about in the Vancouver Sun.
To that end, here are three car crash safety tips.
Tip #1: Know thyself (as a driver)
What are your driving weaknesses? What are your driving strengths? Maybe you have never thought about it before. If so, do not be embarrassed—very few drivers actually think to review their driving skills.
However, you do have skills and you do have weaknesses.
For instance, maybe you are very effective at leaving a space cushion between your vehicle and the car in front of you. On the other hand, maybe you are prone to daydreaming behind the wheel or driving too fast when you get to open stretches of road.
The more that you pay attention to your strengths and weaknesses, the more you can customize your auto safety plan.
For instance, if you know that you are prone to speeding, you can set “red flag” mechanisms to alert you when you are going a little too fast. Know yourself to customize your safety plan.
Tip #2: Know thy car
When was the last time you had your oil changed? When was the last time you rotated the tires? What types of accidents typically afflict drivers who own the same make and model?
The more you understand your car, the safer you will be.
For instance, maybe your type of SUV is prone to flat tires. If so, upgrade your tires or schedule more frequent-than-usual maintenance on them.
Tip #3: Know thy Vancouver car accident lawyer
Do not wait until you are desperate, confused, and hurt to seek legal help. Invest in the time now to make a list of law firms that you could call in an emergency.
Along those lines, educate yourself about the realities of British Columbia car accident law.
