Car accidents often happen close to home

When many people think about a car accident, the first thing that comes to mind is a highway drive many miles away from home. But did you know that many motor vehicle accidents happen in close proximity to the driver's home?

Just because you are familiar with the roadways does not mean there is no risk of an accident. Remember, you don't have to be the person that causes the crash. There is always the chance that another driver, for some reason, will make a mistake that leads to an accident.

Here is the primary reason why car accidents often happen close to home: This is where most people drive on a regular basis. It doesn't matter if you are traveling to and from work, school or the store, there is a good chance you are doing so within 25 miles of your home.

Here is another reason accidents happen close to home: many drivers feel that they are in their comfort zone. For this reason, they stop paying attention to the road and end up making a mistake as a result.

Regardless of where you are driving, close to home or far away, you should always stay alert. This means no distractions and always knowing what is going on around you. In addition, it doesn't matter how far you are traveling, make sure you always wear a seat belt. An accident can happen at any time, even a few blocks from your home.

If you are involved in any accident, close to home or not, don't hesitate to seek medical attention if you are injured.
