5 Tips to Help You Avoid Rear End Collisions

Between dealing with insurance companies, auto body shops, and medical issues, we know how frustrating an auto accident is for everyone involved. Even when you’re not at-fault, fender benders can be time consuming to manage. Here are a few tips to help you avoid the frustration of a rear end collision.

Tips to Avoid Rear End Collisions:

  • Keep An Eye Up Ahead – Always keep an eye on what is happening several cars ahead of you. If you notice that the vehicle in front of you is going to slam on its brakes, you’ll have time to brake sooner (and more gently).
  • Check Your Mirrors – Make sure that you check your side mirrors and rear-view mirrors frequently, especially when traffic starts to slow. Checking your mirrors will let you know when traffic is stopping behind you and if a driver isn’t paying attention while you brake.
  • Leave Plenty of Room – When you start to brake, leave two or three vehicles lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you. You want to make sure that you give yourself enough room to brake and for other vehicles to brake around you.
  • Check Your Brake Lights – Check your brake lights to make sure that they are working frequently. A broken light can put you at a greater risk of an accident.
  • Brake Gently – If you notice that a car is driving too closely, don’t brake hard. Ease up on your brakes and slow gradually so that they will pass you, instead.
