Tips for avoiding Rear-End Collisions

Each Year rear-end collisions account for millions of dollars in property damage and bodily injury losses. While collisions between any two vehicles is highly dangerous, a rear-end collision involving a large commercial vehicle greatly increases the risk of serious injuries and substantial property damage losses. 

Preventable collisions are often defined as one in which the driver failed to do everything reasonable to avoid the collision. The key word is reasonable. Is it reasonable for a professional driver to follow another vehicle too closely?

Rear-end collisions are often preventable. Below are some tips safety professionals recommend to help avoid rear-end collisions:

-Maintain a safe following distance behind the vehicle in front of you. 

-Scan the road ahead as you can see. Watch for unexpected brake lights, changing traffic signals, pedestrians, and other vehicles pulling onto the roadway. 

-Listen to your C.B. Radio or traffic reports on the radio for changing road conditions and trouble spots.

-If possible, plan your trip to avoid rush hour traffic in metropolitan areas
