The Insurance Information Institute reports that seatbelts saved approximately 14,955 lives in 2017. While many motorists understand that seatbelts can greatly reduce the risk of serious injuries, not everyone remembers to wear a seat belt each time they step in a motor vehicle. Besides wearing a seatbelt, some of the other helpful steps that you can follow to avoid getting injured in a car accident include always keeping at least one hand on the steering wheel, performing routine vehicle maintenance, and scanning 12 seconds ahead of a vehicle instead of what’s immediately in front of a vehicle. Another helpful strategy is to remain on the lookout for red light runners who try to rush through an intersection at the last moment before a traffic light turns red.
