Three Main Causes Of Accidents Part 2

Distracted Teen DriverWe’ve been talking about the dangers of texting while driving and how senseless of an act that it is. If you want to be safe behind the wheel of your vehicle then you’ll want to make sure that you don’t text while you’re driving. There are a few things that you can do to avoid responding to your phone. The very first thing that you can try doing is to put your phone in the back of the vehicle or somewhere else that isn’t within reach. This means that you would have to completely stop your vehicle in order to respond to a text or phone call. After all, your friends can wait a few extra minutes before you respond to a text or phone call.

The one act that is completely awful and almost unforgivable is driving while you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This is never worth it and can end with you losing your license, being arrested, hurting or even killing someone. Even if this is something that you have done before or know of others that have made it home safely after doing this you should avoid this at all costs. Before you go out for the evening you should schedule a DD, cab driver, or plan on staying where you are at.

There are many other distractions that happen whenever you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle. A few of these distractions can include: eating, reading, putting on makeup, grooming, changing the music, talking with friends, and much more. Anything that can take you attention off of the road and the act of driving is something that could potentially cause an accident. Try your hardest to always stay focused on what you’re doing which is driving.

We here at Nelson Mazda car dealerships near Bartlesville have some great vehicles that are packed with safety features to protect you and your passengers. Call now to schedule an appointment to look at some of these cars.

Three Main Causes Of Accidents Part 1

Car AccidentEvery time you get inside your vehicle to drive you take a risk of getting into a collision. It’s important be a defensive driver, but the best way to avoid causing a collision yourself is by avoiding three main causes. In this series we are going to discuss a few of the main causes of auto accidents like texting, distractions, and drinking while driving. If you really don’t want to be the cause of an accident then it’s important that you take some time to learn about the most dangerous things that you could do behind the wheel. If you’re well informed then you’ll be less likely to act out these actions.

The first and most common action that is done behind the wheel of a vehicle is texting and driving. This is an issue that practically all drivers deal with these days and it’s something that is extremely dangerous. According to teendriving.com 50 percent of 16-19 year olds admit to texting behind the wheel. These younger drivers are the most dangerous because they are the least experienced in responsive driving. Did you know that you when you just look at your phone for only five seconds while driving 55 miles per hour you’ll travel the distance of a football field blinded. We wouldn’t just close our eyes for five seconds behind the wheel willingly so why would we take this risk by looking at a cell phone? No matter how important the text message may be it’s never worth risking your life or the lives of others out on the road.

In the next article of this series we’ll talk about some things you can do to reduce your chances of looking at a phone and the two other common reasons for accidents.
