There’s No Such Thing as Being Too Safe in Your Car

Do you feel safe in your vehicle? A lot of people do. With all of the advances in modern automobile technology, it’s made us feel even safer than we usually feel inside of a vehicle. For example, with brake assistance and warnings to let us know if we’re veering too close to another lane, computers are able to help us stay safe on the road and keep us out of trouble.

Sadly, a heavy reliance on computers for driving is never a good thing. At the end of the day, accidents are most likely going to happen as a result of human error and not the fault of a computer system in your far. You always need to be aware of your surroundings and you have to watch other drivers or else you’ll end up in serious trouble.

Whether it’s learning to use those safety systems in your car, installing extra airbags or even taking a defensive driving course, it’s important to remember that there’s no such thing as being too safe in your car. Accidents can, sadly, happen to anyone on the road. All it takes is a clueless truck driver or a sleepy cyclist to cause chaos on the road, and everyone involved is going to have a bad day.

To keep you on your toes, here are some spine-chilling car accident statistics, presented in a simple and clean infographic for your viewing pleasure. Think you’re safe enough? After looking at these statistics, you’re going to feel a lot less secure on the road.
