Avoiding Wrong-Way Accidents

When you watch or read the news, there seems to be numerous reports of accidents that occur because of wrong-way drivers. Nobody ever wants to be involved in a car accident, plus deal with the aftermath that will follow. The thought of driving somewhere and seeing another vehicle coming directly at you can certainly be a scary thought. The thought about what the end result might be is devastating. Our car accident attorney put together some ways

Before you ever come into contact with a wrong way driver, here are some things that you should come in mind that will help prevent a tragic Mission Viejo car accident.

Pay Careful Attention To The Highway

When you are driving, you typically look directly at the vehicles that are right in front of you. However, instead of only looking at those cars, pay attention to what is going on farther ahead of you. When you look ahead to what is going on further down the road, you can give yourself time to pull over if you see that a vehicle is coming toward you.

Reporting to the Police

If you are able to carefully pull over and get out of the way of the oncoming vehicle, call 911 as soon as possible. If the driver is still on the wrong side of the highway, you should report the driver to the police. Give as much information on the location you are in, vehicle, the driver, and the direction the vehicle is headed. Any other important information that will help the police get the driver off the highway will be beneficial.

Many wrong-way accidents will result in vehicles crashing directly, head-on. When you and your passengers wear their seat belt, it can be the one thing that will save everyone’s life. To alert the driver, flash your lights or honk your horn.
