Answer these questions before you put your car in drive

Experienced drivers often take their safety for granted. If you've never been part of an accident in the past, you assume that you'll never find yourself in this position in the future. Unfortunately, if you let your guard down, there's an increased risk of trouble.

Here are some questions you should answer before you put your car in drive and hit the road:

  • Have you adjusted your mirrors?
  • Do you have your seatbelt on?
  • Have you placed your smartphone out of reach and/or turned it off?
  • Have you set your vehicle controls, such as the radio and climate, to the appropriate setting?
  • Have you thought about the route that you'll take to your destination?
  • Do you feel alert enough to drive?
  • When was the last time you consumed an alcoholic beverage?

As you answer these questions, you'll gain a better understanding of your current state and whether you can confidently take to the road.

For example, if you're extremely tired, it's best to get some rest before driving. Neglecting to do so increases the likelihood of causing an accident.

Even though you may be in the habit of answering these questions before driving, it doesn't mean that other drivers are taking the same approach. And those are the people who you have to worry about.

If a negligent driver causes an accident, seek medical assistance, obtain a police report and contact your insurance agent to file a claim. Your health is the top priority, but you should also take steps to protect your legal rights and obtain the compensation you deserve.
