While accidents occur about every minute, they are often preventable. By operating motor vehicles extremely carefully and defensively, drivers can reduce the risk of involvement in a vehicle accident. Defensive driving is the act of driving with caution to what the drivers around you are doing in order to be alert and ready to take action if their actions were to pose a threat to your safety. It is wise to know what your surroundings look like all around you, especially further ahead, so that you can prepare for what is to come. Other safe driving tips include: leaving a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, and knowing what you will do in the case of the occurrence of an unexpected incident on the road.
