How can you remain safe in rush hour traffic?

Every day, millions of people hit the road during rush hour. With traffic moving slowly most of the time, you may find it hard to believe that there are so many accidents. However, the speed of traffic doesn't have much impact on whether or not drivers are involved in accidents. A crash can occur at any time.

If you find yourself driving during rush hour, here are some tips that can keep you safe:

-- Don't be in a rush. Although you want to make it to your destination as quickly as possible, especially if you're heading home, being in a rush will only increase your risk of an accident.

-- Don't become distracted. It's easy to become distracted when traffic is slow moving, but you don't want to take your eyes off the road.

-- Stay in your lane of travel. Unless you absolutely need to make a change, it's best to stay in the same lane. Jumping in and out in an attempt to make time is dangerous.

While you can follow these tips during rush hour, there's one last thing to remember: You don't have any control over other drivers.

With this in mind, you need to realize that you could be involved in an accident due to no fault of your own. If this happens, move your car to safety, call for an ambulance and then receive medical treatment.

Once you're on the road to recovery, learn more about why the person caused the accident and how you can receive compensation for your injuries and any damages.
