    This is extremely sad because everyone of this collisions could have been prevented if people would just take driving more seriously and drive defensively. Which basically means , expect the unexpected and drive according to the conditions.
    The conditions are:
    1. Vision, if you can’t see clearly no matter the reason slow down or even stop.

    2. Road conditions, drive accordingly.

    3. The weather conditions drive accordingly

    4. Traffic conditions drive accordingly

    5. Your vehicles condition drive accordingly

    6. Your mentel and physical conditions drive accordingly.

    7. Staying alert to your surrroundings every second mentally driveing is a full time job not a part time happening.

    8. Before you take you driving test learn all that you can in all conditions prior to doing so. That will be different for all of us. Some will require months or even years of learning how to drive with only a license driver with them, seriously.

    If you learn these reqirements up front and take them seriously you can drive collision free the rest of you life I know because I’ve done it. I have driven more than two million miles as a professional driver collision free I’m 67 years old and have been to 7 driving schools. I am a very very good driver, but I’m still learning.

    Happy Trails
