Rush hour driving brings forth many challenges

Even if you have many years of experience driving in rush hour, it doesn't make it any easier to find yourself in gridlock traffic in South Carolina.

Not only is it frustrating to drive in rush hour traffic, but it's also dangerous on many fronts. If you don't take steps to prevent trouble, there's a greater chance of suffering an injury in an accident.

Here are five easy-to-follow tips:

  • Leave more time to reach your destination: For example, don't leave your home at the last possible minute in the morning. If you do, you're more likely to take risks and become antsy when stopped in traffic. Leaving a few extra minutes in your schedule can do wonders for your safety and sanity.
  • Try another route: Even if you have to drive a longer distance, another route may save you time while helping you avoid the most dangerous roadways. There's a chance that there's a better and safer route. You simply need to find it.
  • Don't follow too closely: In rush hour traffic, it's easy to find yourself a few inches behind the vehicle in front of yours. Without enough space, you may not have enough time to abruptly stop your vehicle.
  • Stay in your lane: Don't be one of those drivers who changes from lane to lane in the hope of finding the "fast one." Know which lane you need to be in and stay there until it's time make a turn or exit.
  • Keep your cool: It's not always easy to do, but you don't want your emotions to get the best of you. Aggressive driving is a big mistake, as it will frustrate other drivers while also increasing the risk of an accident.

Even if you practice these rush hour driving safety tips, it's possible another person could cause an accident. If that happens, move to safety, stay in your vehicle and call 911.

Your health is top priority after an accident, so don't focus on anything else until you receive medical attention for your injuries.

As soon as time allows, file an insurance claim, collect evidence pertaining to the accident and learn more about the many ways to seek compensation from the negligent party.
