How to drive safely during rush hour

If you find yourself on the road during rush hour, you know just how difficult it can be to remain safe. Although rush hour accidents occur in cities throughout the country every day, there are steps you can take to ensure your safety.

First, you should exercise an extreme amount of patience. Although you may be in a hurry to get home, being impatient won't do you any favors.

Here are some additional tips to consider:

-- Slow down as to give yourself more time to adjust in the event of an emergency.

-- Don't tailgate other drivers, as this is not going to make the traffic move any faster.

-- Stay in your lane of travel.

-- Even if you're familiar with the road, don't daydream.

-- Don't drive distracted. This means keeping your phone and other distractions out of reach at all times.

As you know, rush hour is when the most vehicles are on the road. Although there are days when the traffic is not as heavy, you know that there will always be others in a hurry to reach their destination.

If you're involved in a rush hour accident, do your best to remove your vehicle from the lane of travel. Along with this, call for an ambulance as to ensure immediate medical treatment.

Unfortunately, even if you're following the rules of the road during rush hour, another driver could make a mistake. If this happens, you could be the person who ends up injured and with a damaged vehicle that requires extensive repair.
