Not all accidents happen by accident
Posted on 9/23/2014
Car accidents happen for three primary reasons. Poor or neglected vehicle maintenance, driving distractions and simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Poor or neglected car maintenance would include, worn wipers affecting visibility, worn tires affecting road traction especially during bad weather, worn brakes affecting stopping on demand, worn belts affecting potential loss of power steering, lights (failed alternator), overheating causing engine failure. You can eliminate up to 90% of these failures by simply having a professional mechanic inspect your vehicle at least twice a year. Distractions needless to say fall in numerous categories, namely texting, phoning, eating and applying makeup while driving. Can these things be done before or after getting behind the wheel? Absolutely! So why not Just do it and live a longer, healthier and happier life.
