- Driving is an inherently dangerous act. Hastings & Hastings notes that many people forget this over time. They become overly comfortable driving. This can often lead to the development of dangerous driving habits. Hastings & Hastings is excited to offer Phoenix drivers a few awesome safety tips.
PHOENIX, April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hastings & Hastings is always trying to combat drowsy driving. It is one of the leading causes of accidents. Driving fatigue can cause loss of focus and result in a decline in reaction time, making it extremely dangerous. It can be particularly dangerous during a long distance drive. Hastings & Hastings advises everyone to get a good restful night of sleep.
Hastings & Hastings reiterates the importance of avoiding speeding. Traveling at high speeds not only increases the chance that a driver will be involved in an accident, but it also often increases the severity of the accident itself. Drivers should follow the speed limit. It is better to get home safe and in one piece, five minutes late, than to not get home at all.
Hastings & Hastings also speaks on the importance of avoiding reckless and aggressive driving. Driving in a predictable manner is the best way to stay safe on the road. Drivers should always clearly signal their intentions whenever they are making a lane change or merging onto the highway.
Drivers should also avoid tailgating at all costs. Not only does this increase the odds that an individual will get in an accident, but it has also been shown to contribute to road rage. Drivers should always maintain a safe following distance, especially when in heavy traffic.
"We often take driving for granted. I see it all the time. We handle thousands of accident cases every year, and most of them have one thing in common – they were preventable. We must be mindful of safety. If we all work together, we can make Phoenix the safest city in the nation," said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.
