Road Safety Reminder for the Week

Understand factors that lead to collisions so you can try to avoid them.

The most common causes of collisions are:

  • Driver distractions
  • Unsafe speed
  • Improper turns
  • Not following the right-of-way rules
  • Not following stop signals and signs
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • A vehicle traveling faster or slower than the flow of traffic

If you see a vehicle’s emergency flashers ahead, slow down. There may be a collision or other road emergency. Pass carefully.

Avoid driving near collisions, if possible. If anyone is injured, they will get help faster if other vehicles are not blocking the road.
