3 Things that Make You Wreck

If you're wondering how people get into wrecks, there are  three things that you should be aware of. They aren't all things that you do  while you're behind the wheel, but they are things that do cause all kinds of  bad situations.

1. Poor Maintenance

Your vehicle is a complex machine. It has a lot of different  systems and some of those systems are made up of hundreds of different  individual parts. They have to be maintained. Everything from the windshield  washer fluid to the brake pads has to be in the proper condition to allow for  safe driving. This doesn't always cost a lot of money. For example, you can  learn to change your own windshield wipers, check your own tires and other  small tasks, even if you aren't mechanically inclined. Most mechanics, in fact,  will probably give you some pointers.

2. Inattentive Driving

You have to pay attention to the road when you're driving.  If you're talking to someone, don't look at them when you're talking to them.  Just look at the road. It's hard to imagine, sometimes, how far you travel in  the second or two you take your eyes off the road to look at your radio, a  passenger, your phone or anything else. At the very least, you should make sure  that you're watching out for the other drivers out there who aren't paying  attention; there are plenty of them.
