Accident prevention tips
As a friendly reminder about “how to drive” (in Hoboken and beyond), here are some helpful hints.
Common sense says:
- Pay attention to your surroundings, the road and other drivers.
- Limit distractions. Phone, iPod, donuts, coffee, etc.
- Don’t tailgate! Leave a safe distance between you and the person ahead of you.
- What’s the hurry? Drive at a relaxed pace, it will give you more time to react.
At least three of these four cars involved in this minor fender-bender (or what HPD called “a four-car pileup”) on 11th and Hudson Streets need a refresher course! Happened about 30 minutes in the past.
