Minimize Car Accidents

These days, every one who owns a car must know the safety rules. We’ve watched or seen road accidents every now and then and it’s really horrifying to see the gory details. Sometimes, no matter how much proper care and attention we put into driving safely, we can’t say the same with other offensive drivers on the road. Still, tragic accidents happen and most of the time, it’s not our fault. So, we just have to be more careful and not to forget the easy and simple precautions we have to do.

How can we minimize mishaps?

  • Defensive Driving – every driver must learn how to be defensive and not offensive. This includes driving with your mind in full concentration and having a sense of courtesy on the road. You just can’t turn left when the red light is on. This would result to accidents when you can prevent it.

Vacation Time!

I haven’t really gone on a vacation for a few years now but this year, I vowed to have at least a few days of R&R or I’ll go crazy!

It’s school break so the kids will make me crazier even more that they are home all the time, lol. Plus, work has gone on a different level and is giving me a lot of stress lately. Thus, several vacations are needed to help me relax a little and enjoy my family.

Cars vs Motorbikes – Why a Car is Safer

It is often said that riding motorbikes is very dangerous, and that driving a car is a far safer option. This is a highly contentious issue, however there are merits to both sides of the argument. Here are a few key points to consider in the car vs motorbike debate.

Visibility

While driving a car, your degree of visibility is often reliant on the make, model and styling of your vehicle. Vans, 4WD’s and trucks have far greater visibility than cars which are lower to the road. When riding a motorbike, the barriers to your vision are far less than in a car, and the riding position instantly gives you an advantage when it comes to visibility. This allows a motorbike rider to assess and react to a potentially dangerous situation in a shorter time than someone in a car with poor visibility.
