Navigating your vehicle in heavy traffic is stressful – and dangerous. To avoid a collision, follow these simple tips for safer driving in heavy traffic.
The National Safety Council has identified the six most unsafe driving behaviors to avoid:
If you are involved in a minor fender-bender accident during heavy traffic, move your vehicle to the side. Never exit your car when stopped in moving traffic. If you, a passenger, or another driver is injured, call 911 and administer first aid.
Your auto insurance becomes a vital issue after an accident. While we all hope to avoid collisions, even if you follow the rules of the road during an entire lifetime of driving, you are likely to be involved in an accident. Talk to one of our friendly agents to discuss your auto insurance policy. If you live in a region with a high percentage of uninsured drivers, ensure you have enough uninsured motorist coverage. Your auto insurance may be lower in price when bundled with your other insurances. We are happy to find the best deal for your budget.
