Car Accidents Can Even Occur While Backing Out of The Driveway
You’ve probably heard it before, but most car accidents occur within just a few miles of our home. It makes sense statistically. Those are the roads we travel most. However, because we’re constantly using streets closest to where we live, we often take for granted their perceived safety…or lack thereof. We let our defenses down, we become less vigilant and our commuter consciousness slips into splintered awareness. It’s during these lapses we often have a wreck, whether we or the other driver is at fault. It happens all the time. Someone is leaving their house consumed with the busy details of their day, and as they back out of their driveway, get hit by an oncoming car, truck or motorcycle. Likewise, a normally safe, conscientious driver is making his or her way home through a residential area, preoccupied by the day’s events and fail to drive cautiously.
