It’s important to note that most accidents are avoidable. The following are a few reasons why vehicle collisions occur and how to avoid them in the future.

One Way to Avoid Collisions

Our brains take in information from the world around us and that information helps us make decisions

While driving, we see a red light and we decide to stop. Or we see that we are entering a school zone and we decide to slow down. The human brain can only handle so many pieces of information at any given time.

The more information coming into our brain, the hard it is for our brain to process the information and decide what to do with it. If you are mindful of this fact, you can actually avoid some collisions!

A study of an airline crash showed that most pilots handle a normal number of information coming into their brain but during an airplane malfunction, the number of pieces of information increases dramatically and this makes...

The Challenge of Complexity

If you were to get into your vehicle, drive down an empty street and pull into your neighbour's driveway, how many dangers did you face on the road?

You might say "none" but, in fact, you faced several. Fortunately, the rules of the road PLUS your safe vehicle, your safe driving skills, and your experience made those risks seem like none at all. You faced risks by not backing out of your driveway correctly, you might not have driven straight down the road or you might not have turned into your neighbour's driveway correctly.

That driving experience might be considered a "best case scenario" because there were risks but there weren't very many and they were quite minimal.

Now consider your average driving experience: If you live in...

How to Increase the Safety of Your Trip

Safe drivers make the decision to drive safely

They remain focused and watchful while they drive and they proactively anticipate what other drivers are going to do. They don't get rattled by unexpected things, but they look far down the road to see what could happen and they are ready for it.

Safe drivers do something else that unsafe drivers do not

They plan ahead and choose routes that increase the likelihood that they will arrive at their destination safely.

A safe driver goes online to consider the weather, news, road conditions, and construction reports to assess the best route to go. They also check maps, social media, and news reports to determine what roads are going to be like.

They know that a route with...

Is Your Vehicle NASCAR Safe?

Every Weekend, Thousands Flock To A Race Track To View A NASCAR Race

There's the Nationwide Series or the bigger, faster, and more famous Sprint Cup Series. (There's also a truck series and a Canadian NASCAR series, too). It's a popular sport that can attract over a hundred thousand spectators to a single race. Every fan has their favorite driver and the roar of the crowd at those races is almost as loud as the roar of the engines.

In those races, the vehicles go very fast around a track, and in very close proximity. And sometimes, they collide for an explosive (and entertaining) collision that causes cars to go spinning around the track and over the grass.

But the drivers are very safe. Although there are injuries (and even the...
