How to Avoid a Head-On Collision?

In order to avoid a head-on collision, it is important to drive responsibly at all times and especially in low-visibility conditions. Pay attention when passing another car, especially on narrow roads, avoid distractions, and never drive tired or under the influence. Avoiding head-on collisions is crucial, as they are considered the most dangerous type of car accidents.

According to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles Miami-Dade is one of the top five counties for car accidents. A six-year study reports that at least one out of every six Florida car accidents occur in the Miami region.

Head-on crashes often have fatal outcome: despite the fact that head-on collisions only account for 2 percent of total car accidents, they are responsible for 10 percent of the fatal injuries. The most efficient strategies to avoid head-on collisions require government funds to actually work, but you as a driver can also respect some simple rules to reduce the likelihood of a head-on collision, such as:

  • Avoid being distracted while driving
  • Avoid driving under the influence or when you are tired
  • Pay extra attention when passing another vehicle
  • Obey speed limit and traffic signs
  • Keep your vehicle in good working condition
