The Federal Highway Administration states that 300-400 people are killed each year in wrong-way driving accidents. We need to remember that everyone shares the road, and we have a responsibility to others to drive safe in order to minimize accidents in the New Year. Follow these tips to help reduce wrong-way driving accidents.
• Be aware of what lies ahead: Look beyond the cars directly in front of you.
• Stay to the right: Drive in the furthest lane from oncoming traffic.
• Remove distractions in the vehicle: Reduce distractions when possible including texting, GPS, food, drinks and loud passengers.
