When it comes to Arkansas car accidents, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan LeVar have learned that a lack of driver safety could be one reason that accidents frequently happen.
According to the “10th Anniversary America’s Best Drivers Report” produced by Allstate, an annual comparison of safe driving trends in the country’s 200 largest cities, Little Rock is way down the list and ranks 122 in the country for being a safe place to drive.
What’s more, the Arkansas state capitol actually fell 10 places on the Allstate list from the previous year. In 2013, according to Allstate, Little Rock was the 112th safest American city for driving.
Allstate develops its ranking by studying property damage and collision frequency in each of the major American cities. The company pairs its safe driving survey results with the following tips for avoiding a car accident…
How to avoid a car accident
Avoid a Car Accident Tip No. 1: Refrain from activities while driving (like applying makeup or sending texts) that divert your attention away from what’s in front of you as well as your surroundings.
Avoid a Car Accident Tip No. 2: Park your car with confidence. Never pull into a spot that’s too close to other vehicles, and always leave the cars and trucks around your vehicle enough room to pull out.
Avoid a Car Accident Tip No. 3: Monitor tire treads, and replace worn-out tires promptly. Hydroplaning is a major cause of accidents nationwide.
