These unexpected tips could save your life on the road

Checking the internet for safe vehicle driving tactics will render similar advice time after time. But if you try digging just a bit deeper, you might find a few gems that you've never seen before. If you've arrived at this article, then surprise! You have found two safe driving gems that just might help you avoid a life-threatening crash.

Chances are that you've never heard these tips before:

1. Adjust your side-view mirrors out wider.

Most people set their side-view mirrors in a way that lets them see the side of their car a little. However, you shouldn't actually be able to see any part of your vehicle in your side-view mirrors.

By adjusting your mirrors in this way, you will broaden the field of view to eliminate (or at least shrink) your blind spots. Having a better awareness of the traffic to your right and left could help prevent a fatal crash.

2. Don't hit the brakes following a blown tire.

Everyone experiences a flat tire from time to time. Sometimes, the flat is a slow leak. Other times it's a fast blow while your driving at high speed. If the tire blows, many people will slam on the brakes, but this is a sure-fire way to lose control.

The wisest course of action is to apply a little gas and slowly let up until your car comes to a safe and controlled stop.

No matter how safe we try to be, there's always the danger that an unlawful, reckless or negligent motorist could hurt us. If something like this happened to you, learn about your options to pursue financial compensation in court by getting in touch with our law office.
