A bus and a pickup involved in a crash

-signal -mirrow -position -manoeuvre -speed -look out -final mirror check -horn

Giving adequate consideration to the sequence above will enable the driver to have more time to take stock of happenings on the road ahead. And be adequately prepared for any eventuality.

  • Defensive driving requires 100% attention The central focus are -space and -visibility
  • Drivers must display the following to achieve a good level of safety while on the road -ability -brilliance -experience

Also mechanical faults could occur, coupled with poor weather conditions which may contribute to cause more traffic problem, including crash.

Another fact is that many drivers consider themselves as good. Because they have been driving for several years but this is not true. Even experience and confidence drivers still make mistakes now and then.


In conclusion, a traffic crash is a needless catastrophe. On occurence of a crash, effort must be in place to ensure that similar crash does not happen again.
