7 Things you can do that might save your life during an auto crash
An auto crash is something no one wants to experience,sometimes its your fault and other times its not.
There are steps to take to help prevent bad occurrences such as injuries and even worse, death .
Highlighted below are some tips to help you prevent injuries and death in case an auto crash occurs .
1.Always Wear Your Seat Belt
This cannot be emphasized enough .
Your seat belt is not just there to prevent LASTMA officials from flagging you down.Its also there for your safety.Wear it !
2.Keep Potential Flying Objects Safe
In the event of a collision or a roll over ,you wouldn’t want sharp objects or any object that could cause harm to you, flying around.
Keep objects you don’t use frequently in the boot.
Keep your pen in the glove box .
3.Drive The Safest Car You Can Afford
A lot of people focus mainly on aesthetics and fuel economy of cars .
Very little care about how safe the vehicle is .
You should check crash tests and safety ratings of cars before buying them and buy the safest one you can afford.
You should also check the safety features the car has before buying.
4.Don’t Over Speed
This has been resounded over and over again ,but some people still feel they are James Bond.Even if the road is totally free,you should limit your speed ,just imagine a car coming into the road unexpectedly ,or an animal crossing the road unexpectedly while you are being fast and furious .
When you are not over speeding the force of impact would be less and injuries minimal.
5.Aim For An Object That Would Do Least Damage
In case you loose control ,probably when avoiding a Danfo Bus .Aim for an object that would do least damage,both to yourself and others .This is why you should always be alert and conscious of your environment.
6.Keep The Kids Strapped In Always
It really pisses me off when I see parents allow their kids play in cars while driving .
Some mothers even breast feed while driving !
Children are lighter than you are and can easily get thrown around when an accident occurs .So keep them buckled up always !.
7.Always Have Emergency Number On Speed Dial
Always have an emergency number on speed dial .If possible activate voice control on your phone ,because you might not be able to move .
You should also have phone numbers of loved ones saved and on speed dial ,with easily identifiable names like “wife” and “mum” etc.
