The highway system in the United States is as impressive as it is expansive, but it can be an exceedingly dangerous place if not navigated with great care and caution. However, there are some things you can do to decrease your chance of being involved in a New York:

  • Before getting into your vehicle all of the fluids should be examined and the tires should be checked for the appropriate pounds per square inch. Also, when the vehicle is started, any noises such as clanking or any excessive vibration, should be noted, as it may be a sign of a significant mechanical problem.
  • The night before a long drive you should make sure that you have a solid night of sleep and have had a good meal in the morning. It is easy to overlook your own personal well being when getting behind the wheel, but your personal health and awareness are in direct connection with your ability to be as safe as you can when driving.
  • When driving through work zones make sure to take great care, as there are many perils specific to work zones. Remember that traffic will be diverted and abnormal in a work zone, plus there may be new signage that directs traffic in a different way then it had been in the past. 
  • Always keep your distance from other motorists in front of you and be ready to slow down immediately if traffic begins to stop.
  • Be conscious of your blind spots and do your best to understand where other motorists are around you. If you keep constant surveillance then it is easy to see when others will be passing through your blind spots making it harder to be caught unaware. 
  • Buckle your safety belt whenever you enter your vehicle as it is the number one piece of safety equipment that can save you incase of an accident.
