Getting from Point A to Point B may seem like the sole responsibility of the person behind the wheel, but the fact is, safe driving is a team effort. Of course, your actions when driving are going to directly influence the passengers inside your car, and if it were up to you, all commutes would be a breeze. Unfortunately, however, you’re not the only person on the road. That means that you’re vulnerable to the actions of every single other driver who thinks I-71 is their own personal autobahn.
Whether you’re traveling across the state to see family, run some errands downtown, or you’re simply trying to get to work, you’re putting your life in danger every time you set foot into your vehicle. In icy conditions or inclement weather, your risk greatly increases. The sad truth is, Ohio simply is not a safe state for commuters. When ranking all of the states in our country, Ohio is the 4th most dangerous state for vehicular deaths. Of the 2,718 fatal car crashes that happened last year, Ohio took responsibility for 172 of them.
There are a few things you can do to help keep yourself and your family safe while driving this winter, including:
- Drive slower than usual to account for slippery roads
- Keep a wider gap between yourself and the cars ahead of you
- Don’t mash your accelerator, or your breaks
- Obey all posted road signs
- Keep an eye out for black ice
- Only go out if absolutely necessary
