Connecticut Auto Accidents Can Be Caused By Changing Lanes
Connecticut auto accidents happen when drivers are not alert and aware of their surroundings, especially when changing lanes. When changing lanes, you must check to make sure there are no vehicles in your way in the lane you want to enter. This means checking the side and behind your vehicle before you change. This is important if you are on the highway, entering a highway, entering a road from another road, and entering from the curb/shoulder.
When changing lanes:
- Look in your rear-view and side mirrors.
- Look over your shoulder in the direction you plan to move.
- Check quickly. Do not take your eyes off the road ahead for more than an instant.
- Check the far lane.
- Take one lane at a time.
