This video is compilation #46 of car crashes, road rage, close call and bad driving caught on dash cam from across the Globe. For the purpose of educational and road safety awareness. We hope that by viewing situations such as these, drivers will become more aware of traffic hazards and how to avoid them. It is our goal to educate drivers which may help to reduce the number of accidents, injuries, and deaths around the world.
A number of factors contribute to the risk of collisions, including vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, and driver skill, impairment due to alcohol or drugs, and behavior, notably distracted driving, speeding and street racing. Worldwide, motor vehicle collisions lead to death and disability as well as financial costs to both society and the individuals involved.
Here are some tips on how to avoid traffic collisions:
1. Keep your eyes on the road
When you are driving, you should be doing just that and nothing else. Don’t let things going on inside the car distract you from the task at hand. The car is not the place for multi-tasking, so you should not be doing things like brushing your hair or shaving (yes, there are people who actually do these things). If you are not concentrating solely on your driving, you are risking an accident, because you will not be prepared for anything that is up ahead.
2. Never use your cell phone
There is no good reason to be talking on a cell phone while you are driving. This is extremely distracting. If you do not have a hands-free model, you will have to look at the phone to dial numbers. Even with a hands-free, you will be talking, which will distract you from your driving. Put the phone away, and make sure it is turned off so you don’t have the urge to answer it if it rings. If you do need to make a call, wait until you are parked before doing so.
3. Follow speed limits
When you are driving too fast, you are really risking having accidents. For one thing, if you have to stop suddenly, chances are that you are not going to be able to. What if a child was to run out in front of you and you were going too fast? Would you be able to slow down enough, or even stop, so that you don’t hit him? If you are driving within the posted speed limit, you will not have this problem, because you will be driving a speed that makes it easy to stop quickly if necessary. It is not just pedestrians you need to worry about either. Another driver may not be paying attention and run a stop sign, and you need to be going slowly enough to be able to react on time.
4. Follow the rules of the road
Just like speed limits, there are other rules of the road that you must follow if you want to avoid having accidents, and getting traffic tickets. If you are approaching a stop sign or a red light, start slowing down long before you get to it, so that you are able to come to a complete stop at the stop line. Obey all traffic signs; they are there for a reason.
5. Ignore aggressive drivers
There are going to be some drivers who do some pretty crazy things, like speed and cut other drivers off, and sooner or later, you are going to be faced with one of these people. The best thing to do in a case like this is to try and get as far out of their way as possible. If they are crawling up behind you, honking their horn, slow down to let them pass. Don’t play games and just make them angrier. The quicker you can get them away from you, the safer you will be.
Traffic collisions can be classified by general types. Types of collision include head-on, road departure, rear-end, side collisions, and rollovers. Many different terms are commonly used to describe vehicle collisions. The World Health Organization uses the term road traffic injury, while the U.S. Census Bureau uses the term motor vehicle accidents (MVA) and Transport Canada uses the term “motor vehicle traffic collision” (MVTC). Other common terms include auto accident, car accident, car crash, car smash, car wreck, motor vehicle collision (MVC), personal injury collision (PIC), road accident, road traffic accident (RTA), road traffic collision (RTC), and road traffic incident (RTI) as well as more unofficial terms including smash-up, pile-up, and fender bender. Some organizations have begun to avoid the term “accident”, instead preferring terms such as collision, crash or incident. This is because the term “accident” implies that there is no-one to blame, whereas most traffic collisions are the result of driving under the influence, excessive speed, distractions such as mobile phones or other risky behavior.
