3 Bad Driving Habits We Must Be Careful Not To Pass On To Our Kids

 

Remember when you were little how your parents seemed like giants to you. Not just in their stature but in how they used to wield the power of adulthood with such cool casualty. While little things like being able to drive a car or use a credit card were so quotidian for them, to you they were acts that verged on being superhuman. We’re hard wired to see our parents as the models of adulthood. We model our expectations of everything an adult says and does upon them, and so too is it with our own kids. It’s strangely endearing when we see our mannerisms of speech and turns of phrase pop up in our kids’ vocabulary and a wonderful moment of affirmation when we see them use the lessons we have taught them in life without prompting.

What NOT to Do after a Car Crash

 

Image – https://www.pexels.com/photo/red-and-yellow-hatchback-axa-crash-tests-163016/

Car crashes can be incredibly traumatic, and we all hope that we will never be involved in one. Nevertheless, it is important to be prepared should the worse happen. By knowing what to do in advance, you will be able to act quickly to ensure the situation does not get any worse. It is also important to know what to do for the legal side of things too. After all, the last thing you want to do is say something that could land you in legal hot water. So, let’s take a look at some of the things you should never do after a car accident…

 

Saying too much – It can be very easy to let your mouth run away with you after being in a car accident. After all, emotions are running high. You are probably upset, angry, and frightened by what has happened. However, you need to try and keep your emotions in check as much as possible. The last thing you want to do is end up saying something that could implicate you for the accident. You will be surprised by how many people have implicated themselves (even when the accident wasn’t their fault) because they have let their emotions take over and their mouth has run away with them.

 

Not calling the police – You will probably need to call the police, depending on the nature of the crash. In most cases, you need to call the police if the crash is serious and someone has been badly hurt. You will also need to call the police if the crash is causing a danger to oncoming traffic. Furthermore, you should get in touch with law enforcement if any criminal activity has taken place, i.e. if the other driver has fled the scene or if they have been driving without insurance. If the crash has been minor, the cars are out of the way, and you and the other driver are handling everything well, you will need to report the incident, but you do not need to trouble the emergency services with it, as it is not an urgent matter.

 

Failing to get the contact details of those involved – If you have been involved in a crash, once you have checked that everyone is okay, it is vital to get the details of everyone involved in the incident. Firstly, you need to get the contact details of the other driver. This includes their name, address, and telephone number, as well as their registration plate, and the make and model of their vehicle. You should also get the contact information of anyone that witnessed the crash. This includes their name, address, and telephone number. This is because witness statements can be very useful if you do decide to proceed with a compensation claim for the accident you have been involved in.

 

Not taking photographs of the scene – This is another point that relates to making a case for compensation for the car accident you have been involved in. Nowadays, most people have smartphones that have cameras. This makes it easy to quickly take a few photographs no matter where you are. It is, therefore, a good idea to take some photographs of the scene, as there is typically damage to the cars and the surrounding areas after a crash. This will serve as great proof of what has happened. Moreover, if your injuries become visible, i.e. you suffer heavy bruising or you need to have your arm put in a cast, you could also take photographs of this to strengthen your case as well.

 

Hopefully, you now have a better understanding of what not to do after a car crash, so you can make sure you do not take any actions that make the situation worse or get you in trouble with the law. Even if the car accident was not your fault, it is easy to say something that could implicate you in the heat of the moment without realising it. So, try to keep things as hush-hush as possible, and follow the steps provided, and you can ensure everything goes as ‘well’ as can be expected from such a horrible situation.
