Seven Simple Steps to Avoid a Wichita Auto Accident

Each year, an estimated two million Americans sustain serious injuries from an auto accident and an additional 40,000 are killed. The best way drivers can avoid these life altering accidents is to drive defensively. Here are a few of the best tips to drive defensively and avoid an accident on Wichita highways.

  1. Always make sure everyone in the vehicle is buckled in and the doors are locked before starting the vehicle.
  2. Always use a designated driver if you have been drinking.
  3. Don’t drive when tired and stay alert for drivers who are weaving, stopping abruptly, or responding slowly to traffic.
  4. Avoid drivers that you suspect are impaired by taking an exit or turning onto a different street.
  5. Call 911 if you suspect another driver acting confused or impaired.
  6. Always use the three second rule when following another car.
  7. Avoid texting, playing with the radio, eating and other distractions while driving.

Driving alert and defensively is the best way to stay safe on Kansas highways. In the event that you are in an accident, make sure you know the five most common mistakes that ruin your case and what to expect after an accident.
