How to avoid a head-on collision
What do you do when a car is driving towards you or an animal jumps out in front of you? Follow these tips:
If it’s a car heading towards you, the driver might be asleep or distracted, so hoot your horn and flash your headlights to alert them.
Don’t brake hard, swerve to the other side of the road or lose control by jerking off the road.
It is better to slow down and steer your vehicle to the left shoulder of the road. Prepare for someone possibly ramming you from behind.
If you have to go off the road, aim for something that will cause the least possible damage.
Your seat belt works the best if you stay upright, so don’t duck forward or try to get into the brace position.
