According to Bryant Motors, a person should limit distractions. They should text, use their cell phones, and fiddle with the GPS or radio when they have stopped the car, and also avoid using them while driving. They should give all their attention to the road. Similarly, the driver should scan the area that they are driving through and know the blind spots.

They may do so by ensuring that their mirrors are in the right position. However, their full faith should not get placed on the mirrors; they should quickly turn around and look before they decide to change lanes or enter into the highway. Doing so may help them avoid unexpectedly pulling in front of someone. Additionally, they may try avoiding other drivers’ blind spots, such as the semi-trucks. They may limit their nighttime driving. Regardless of how good their eyes may be, it is not very easy to drive at night and the risk of getting involved in an accident is higher.

According to EHS Today, they may slowly pull into the traffic. They should stop, look around, and listen. Also, they should watch out for the red-light runners. Before they enter into an intersection on a green light, they may count to three. To ensure that no one is trying to speed with the yellow lights, they should look both ways.

When driving, they should at least keep one hand on the steering wheel. Similarly, watch out for kids and animals as they may pop up out of parked cars and run into the roadways. Therefore, when they are driving in any residential neighborhood, they should carefully lookout and slow down. Besides, they should regularly perform engine maintenance to avoid unexpected and sudden stalls.
