Around this time of year, you are probably thinking of resolutions to make. You probably have those resolutions you make that you end up breaking before January is over. Make some resolutions this year that you plan on keeping. Some good goals you can make to keep you and your family safe is to become a safer driver. It may not happen all at once, but you can keep your family safe and avoid a car accident by making a goal to keep safe on the road.
A good habit to get into is keeping a better distance between you and the driver in front of you. It can be really easy to tailgate on the freeway, but this can also be an easy cause for a car accident. Instead of only keeping a distance of one car between you and the car in front of you, try leaving a space for two cars. This way, you can avoid slamming on your brakes and possibly rear-ending the car in front of you. If you do happen to rear end the car in front of you, contact Robert J. DeBry & Associates for an experienced lawyer.

Sometimes it’s better to stay off the roads to avoid a car accident. If you have been in an accident, contact a lawyer to help you through the process.
