Avoiding Reckless Drivers: A Personal Injury Attorney’s Tips
Allow Extra Travel Time
Give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination, so you don’t have to speed or tailgate. You’ll be more attentive on the road and more relaxed when you arrive at your destination.
Don’t Drive Distracted
Keep your focus on your driving and watch out for other people’s risky behaviors. Stay alert to reckless drivers by avoiding distractions such as eating, drinking, smoking, and listening to loud music while driving. Remember, in New York, it’s illegal to use a handheld mobile device while operating a motor vehicle.
Maintain a Safe Distance
Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicles around you. When you see signs of recklessness, such as drivers speeding or weaving in and out of traffic, get out of their way. Move over and let them pass if they are coming up behind you. If necessary, pull off to the side of the road for a few minutes to let them get far enough away from you, and call 911 to report them.
