How to Avoid A Fender Bender

August 22nd, 2018 by

When someone drives off the lot in a brand new vehicle, they dread the day that the vehicle experiences its first crack or bump. Most people can tell you exactly when it was. They parked a little too close and hit a curb, or they backed into another parked vehicle. Unfortunately, sometimes the vehicle’s first scratch is a little more severe. Fender benders are a new car owner’s nightmare, but they occur more often than you may think. While in some cases, they are unavoidable, heed these easy tips to decrease your chances of being involved in one.

Keep a Safe Distance

Whether you are on a back road or a highway, it is important to keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. This will give you the necessary amount of time to hit your brakes without running into the person ahead of you, or causing the person behind you to hit you. Many times, when people tailgate the person in front of them, they are unable to stop their vehicle in time.

Travel the Speed Limit

The speed limit is set for a reason. In most cases, a team of engineers gave their input to decide that this was the safest and most efficient speed for people to travel on the specific road. When you go above the speed limit, you increase your chances of experiencing a fender bender.

Pay Attention

A huge contributor to fender benders is the driver’s failure to pay attention. When you are driving, the task at hand should be your main priority. Avoid any distractions whether it be your phone, the music, or passengers so that you can have the adequate response time to any obstacle on the road.
