According to WHO, 1.3 million people die yearly from road traffic accidents. The numbers increase yearly even with all the safety and road signs in cities and urban areas. Can you imagine the undocumented accidents in rural areas with unpaved roads and fewer road signs?
What are the most common road accidents?
There are a lot of factors leading to road accidents, and usually, they are preventable. It is good to be aware of these when driving on paved highways or rough terrain.
Driving on Rough Roads
Extreme weather conditions make unimproved roads very difficult to drive along. For intense rough road driving, here are some safety tips to keep in mind.
Know Your Car
Before going out of town, think about the vehicle you will use. Decide the right car for the road conditions you are about to take. Take a good check on your vehicle’s status. Will it handle the strain of driving on such terrain?
Nobody should be driving too fast on unimproved roads. Maintain a speed that makes it easier to watch cars passing pedestrians and debris. Try to be aware of your surroundings while driving on this terrain. Nothing good has ever happened from over-speeding.
Another good thing about this is you not only get to avoid accidents that save your life, but you also get to save your tires’ lives.
You must check if you’re not carrying too much that weighs down your vehicle. It’ll damage your tires, making it more difficult for you to go through potholes and bumps.
Having known all of these, it would still be challenging to practice them while driving. You can sometimes get caught up with your surroundings while on the road. Remember, as a driver, you are responsible not only for your life but also the others’. You have made yourself one step to safety by having the right car insurance.
