How to avoid the four most common accidents
Defensive driving teaches you to pay attention to your surroundings and how to react in a potentially dangerous situation. This is handy if you find yourself facing one of these frequent car crash scenarios and all you have to avoid a collision is your skill and ability to react decisively. The MD of MasterDrive, Eugene Herbert, provides some tips on what to do in these scenarios.
These are collisions with other vehicles, animals and stationary objects like trees. Often these crashes result in serious injuries to the brain and spinal cord as many occur at high speeds.
These are the most common collisions, most often caused by distracted driving.
These are some of the most dangerous especially in cars without side airbags. The sides of a car also have less space to absorb impact.
These occur at speeds less than 20km/hour. They most often occur while driving through neighbourhoods or reversing out of parking spaces or driveways. It is still possible to be injured.
