Stay safe and avoid accidents on New Jersey roads

October 09, 2015

It is hard to imagine that 100 years ago, very few people had an automobile. This is especially hard to think about when most of us are forced to drive to our jobs, drive our children to school and drive just about everywhere else during the day. We spend so much time inside our automobiles that most New Jersey drivers completely forget about the extreme dangers they are facing when they take to the roads. This is why it is important to practice some safe driving techniques to lessen the chances of getting into an accident.

When considering what you can do to stay safe, always remember to be a defensive driver rather than an offensive one. Defensive driving means keeping a watchful and attentive eye on the traffic and roadway around you. Give other drivers space. Never try to get ahead of slow moving traffic if it will put you and your passengers at risk. Use your turn signals. Check your blind spots. Try to make eye contact with other drivers before pulling out in front of them. Obey traffic laws. Most importantly, use common sense at all times.

You should also follow the flow of traffic. Rather than trying to weave in and out of traffic in order to get to where you are going a few minutes earlier (is it really worth the risk?), try to match the speed patterns of the cars around you. This means that you should speed up to match the flow as well; you don’t want to be the one slow car that everyone is trying to pass because this is also dangerous.

By following this advice and using your common sense on New Jersey roads, you can avoid many traffic dangers. Still, no one is completely “accident proof.” If you or your loved one is ever injured in an accident caused by a negligent or unlawful driver, the Epstein Law Firm is here to help seek financial restitution for your injuries.
