Are you driving safely on the highway?

City driving and highway driving are not one and the same. When you find yourself on the many interstates in and around the Green Bay area, it's critical to adjust your approach with safety in mind.

Here are some of the many things you can do to enhance your safety when driving on the highway:

  • Share the road with large vehicles: For example, highways are home to commercial trucks. It's critical to share the road with these vehicles. From providing space to merge to avoiding blind spots, do your part in making life easier on commercial vehicle drivers.
  • Pass in the left, drive in the right: Get into the habit of passing slow-moving vehicles in the left lane, while spending most of your time driving in the right lane. Passing in the right lane increases the risk of an accident.
  • Drive defensively: There will always be aggressive drivers, but you don't have to become one of them. Defensive driving is the way to go, as it reduces the risk of an accident and makes it easier to keep your cool.

Due to the speed at which traffic is moving, a highway motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious injury or even death.

If you're injured in this type of accident, move your vehicle to the shoulder of the road, if possible, and immediately assess the situation. This typically includes checking yourself and passengers for injuries, while also calling 911 to request help.

As your health allows, learn more about your legal rights, file an insurance claim and seek compensation from the negligent driver.
