Dealing with Traffic Chaos After a Road Accident

Author: Administrator
Everyday millions of cars are traveling our highways and byways. With so many cars on the road, it is inevitable that a car accident will occur. Everyday, people all over the world encounter the traffic chaos following a road accident. When caught in the traffic chaos after a car accident, there is always the risk of injury to your own vehicle or even yourself. There are a number of things one can do to minimize the dangers during a chaotic scene after an accident.

- Stay calm and clear your thoughts. Respond to the situation and what is taking place around you in a rational manner. Panicking is only going to lead to more problems. You have to think about your safety as well as the safety of others.

- Do not suddenly accelerate your vehicle. Look around to see if the other vehicles have accumulated and created a traffic jam. If they have not and the car ahead of you is moving, slowly creep forward and look for the flashing lights of ambulances and police cars. .If your vehicle is involved in an accident and you do not stop, you may be at risk for criminal prosecution

- If there are damaged vehicles near you, or the traffic is backed up, move your car to the side of the road if it is safe. Your vehicle should not block the flow of the traffic and should be parked in an area that will reduce the risk of another vehicle slamming into you. Turn off your car and put on the hazard lights to warn others of the danger. If your vehicle cannot be driven, turn on your hazard lights.

- If there are other cars still moving near you, stay in your car. You do not want to get injured. If it is all clear, check to see if you can get out of the car and move a safe distance from the road.

- If anyone has been injured in the car accident and you have a cell phone, call 911 and ask for the police and ambulance to come immediately. If the vehicles involved in the accident appear to be a danger to other drivers, inform the police.

- Do not try to move anyone injured in the accident. You may end up causing further damage to their injuries. If you are injured, do not move. Wait for the police or ambulance to assist you.

- If you are carrying a cell phone camera, record all the details of the accident and its location. Make sure that the picture shows the actual position of the car or cars involved in the accident.

- Take notes and make sketches of the car accident that has occurred. Note what lane you were in and the road and weather conditions at the time the accident occurred.

- We have all heard of road rage. Tensions often run high during traffic chaos. Do not antagonize other drivers because more injuries may occur. If someone is making unreasonable demands such as ordering you to move your vehicle, roll up your window and lock your doors. The police will handle the situation.

Slippery roads, dangerous and careless drivers, and a high number of cars on the road at the same time, is an accident waiting to happen. If you are one of the drivers on the road, you need to be able to react appropriately to an accident that results in traffic chaos. Your life and your loved ones' lives depend on it.
