Top 10 Ways to Prevent an Accident

1. Carefully look both ways — twice — before entering an intersection. It's easy to miss an oncoming car at first glance because it's hidden by your car's windshield frame. A second look only takes a second and it might avoid a serious collision.
doubt that we'll ever be able to completely eliminate accidents from occurring on the road, but I'm sure that there's many things that could be done to reduce their occurrence and severity...
- Increased amounts of lighting, particularly in trouble spots that have frequent accidents during low visibility conditions
- Elimination of new highway construction projects that do not implement divided lanes...get rid of the concrete barrier currently separating the lanes and replace it with a wider open area (at least where it is geometrically feasible)
- Reduce lane widths by a foot and increase the shoulder by the difference (that extra foot doesn't make a big difference when you're paying attention, but can be a lifesaver when you really need to use that recovery area!)
- One stop light per lane at signalized intersections
- Ban drivers under 18 or 19 from using a cellphone while driving
- Harsher punishments for drivers with multiple DUI offenses
- Don't allow simulators to be used during drivers education courses
- Increase the duration a driver has to have their permit prior to receiving their license
- Parents can actually take responsibility for their children by actually driving with their kids the required time (300 hours, is it?) instead of just signing off!!!!
