Collision repair centers

Every minute, Americans are issued up to 65 traffic tickets. That means a lot of people are driving recklessly, and there are a lot of accidents just waiting to happen.

So what can you do to keep you and your family safe?

1. Expect Congestion

It takes one third of a shot glass or just one half ounce of gas to make a car run. That means it does not take much to get cars going, and there are a lot of people out there.

Be prepared to drive in heavy traffic and always be on the defensive.

2. Minimize Distractions

Radios for installation and use in vehicles were invented in 1929, decades after cars themselves. Maybe we should take a hint.

Keep music low enough to concentrate on the road. Do not eat, text, or make phone calls while driving.

3. Know the Danger Zones

Where do the most accidents occur? Research shows that majority of car crashes happen just three miles away from the apartment or house you call “home.”

4. Get Repairs

By avoiding collision repair centers or local body shops, you are endangering everyone around you. Shoddy brakes, crooked alignment, and burnt out signals or brake lights can be fixed or replaced with a visit to one of many body repair shops.

Keep in mind the easiest way to reduce the number of accident and increase local traffic safety is by being proactive about repairs and visiting collision repair centers. Research more like this.

    Mostly good advice, but I think you need to lighten up a LITTLE. Everyone listens to the radio. Most of my friends blast it, and I haven’t heard of a single person getting in an accident because their music was too loud.

    You make a really good point about being proactive about repairs. I know a lot of people who don’t make too much money, so they’ll let “little” things on their cars go. Like a burnt out signal. And then almost get into accidents at every turn.
