Collisions: Avoiding A Rear-End Collision

  • Changing lanes
    • Before changing lanes, make sure the lane you are moving into is clear.
    • Also, make sure your speed is sufficient so that pulling in front of another car does not cause its driver to brake to avoid hitting you.
  • Keep foot on brake pedal – After stopping, continue to keep your foot pressed on the brake pedal to alert others that you have stopped.
  • Keep rear lights clean and in working order – Maintain the working order of your brake lights and keep them clean.
  • Adjust headrests – Always doing this prior to driving reduces the chance of whiplash in a rear-end collision.
