Most of us, if not all have been in a vehicle either driving or being driven. From our experiences in cars, we have seen a few mistakes made by drivers.
Here is a list of some of the most common driver mistakes.
- Overtaking and Lane Changing
The mistakes mentioned on the list above are just a few of the many mistakes drivers make on the road.
Across the globe, when we talk about automobile accidents, speed has come up as the most common reason. This is because it is harder to control an over speeding vehicle.
We are required to stick to the required speed limit. Don't be tempted to go over the speed limit. A meeting with the biggest client of your firm is not worth any life. Better late than never.
When driving, you need your brain, eyes and ears focused. Distraction can lead to a fatal crash not only to you but to others using the road. Eyes on the road, hands on the steering wheel.
Smartphones, other occupants and changing of audio or navigation controls are common distractions drivers should avoid.
Long distance driving or lack of sleep can be the main cause of getting tired. You do not want to be behind a wheel and find yourself sleeping.
It is simple, never drive if you feel tired. Driving while fatigued makes your reaction time to different scenarios slow. Take a nap if you need to and if you must get to your destination without fail, get someone to drive you.
Overtaking and Lane Changing
Overtaking is no crime but when are you overtaking? Have you checked if it is the right time to overtake?
Make sure you use your mirrors when overtaking. To avoid any crashes use your turn signals correctly before overtaking and switching lanes.
Avoid these mistakes for your safety and that of other road users.
Having faulty automobiles is also a mistake you may ignore and may result in a crash. If you need auto body service or collision repair, please give Allyz Auto a call or visit soon.
