With around 6 million car accidents occurring every year in the U.S., it is essential to be cautious when driving. While some of these accidents are unavoidable, many are caused by distracted, tired, or intoxicated drivers. Here are some tips to help protect you from a car wreck.
Always Wear Your Seatbelt
Seat belts can reduce the risk of fatal injury by 45% when worn correctly by front-seat drivers. Wear your seatbelt to help avoid serious injury, even on short drives. Your seat belt protects you from being easily thrown around in the car or even through the windshield and can help reduce the risk of injuries or death.
