Avoiding accidents

Here is one method to avoid a traffic crash. (1) Identify all potential trouble around you. (2) Predict what the other drivers (especially the one in your danger zone), pedestrians or cyclist may do. (3) Decide what your choices are for avoiding trouble. (4) Execute your best choice to prevent the problem that you identified.

Remember, always leave yourself an out, because once you are out of choices, you leave yourself at the mercy of the other driver.

The picture below shows a typical day for a driving instructor working with students and watching out for licensed drivers. People often ask of others what they refuse to do when they are in the same situations.
