In order to make sure you do not have a car accident, we at CMH Toyota Umhlanga have put together a few steps to follow in order to avoid an accident. Many car accidents that take place on the roads are very avoidable if the correct precautionary steps are taken. Here are some of the precautionary steps from us at CMH Toyota Umhlanga
1. Choose a vehicle with suitable safety features.
When you buy a car, check to see what safety features the vehicle comes with as well as check the safety ratings of the car before you make your decision.
2. While driving you must always keep your eyes on the road.
While you drive it is highly advised that you do not try multitasking and always keep your eyes on the road. If you are not fully focused on driving it increases the chance of an accident.
3. Always check your blind spots.
While driving, it is vital that you always check your blind spots. If you are changing lanes, turning, or reversing out of parking, you should always check your blind spots.
4. Do not use your phone while driving.
Using your phone while driving is possibly one of the worst habits people have. If you must answer the phone because it is an emergency, rather pull over and answer the call to avoid an accident.
5. Do not drive if you are tired.
Driving while you are tired can lead to fatal accidents. If you are tired, it can result in a decrease in mental awareness and alertness. Your reflexes will be a lot slower which will result in you having a slower reaction time in an emergency.
