There is a proven way to avoid getting into an accident. I have said it
a million times, the first three rules of driving are "Pay Attention, Pay
Attention, and then Remind Yourself to Pay Attention".
Guess what? I am not the only one that says this. The NHTSA just
released a study on Real World Driver Behavior. Their results in a
nutshell, inattention is the leading factor in most crashes and near-crashes.
As much as 80%! They plugged in 100 cars, and drove them over 2,000,000
miles to get the data.
