Defensive driving: Helping you avoid being injured in an accident

Millions of drivers and passengers are injured in Missouri through road accidents. You have no control over other drivers, but defensive driving helps you to reduce chances of getting into an accident. It is a technique that enhances your safety when driving.

As a defensive driver, you pay attention to more than just what is ahead of you. This means watching everything all around you on the road including other drivers. Your mind remains focused on driving by putting away everything that may distract you. Being a defensive driver, you should not eat, adjust radio, text or apply makeup while driving. It helps you stay alert all the time while driving. As the holidays approach, it is a good idea to think about what you can do to avoid being injured in an accident.
