Driving our vehicles is easily one of the most dangerous activities that Americans partake in every day. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that more than 32,000 people died in motor vehicle accidents in 2014.
Responsible driving habits are what keep our roads safe. Here are a few tips from the NSC to help reduce your risk for injuries on the road:
- Dont speed
- Dont drink and drive
- Get plenty of sleep before getting behind the wheel
- Dont use your cellphone while driving even hands-free devices cause distractions
Additionally, according to the council, the three greatest causes for auto accidents are:
- Alcohol (30.8 percent)
- Speeding (30 percent)
- Distracted driving (36 percent)
