Ed 208 Posted December 17, 2015 Share Posted December 17, 2015 I'm sorry to hear about your car accident, but hey, that's why they're called car accidents after all - you never expect them to happen so don't beat yourself up about it.They may be accidents, but you should be expecting them. And if you cause an accident you should beat yourself up about it. I would have a very hard time living with myself if I accidentally killed someone, which is a very real possibility in car crashes. Even when no one is hurt you should beat yourself up over a car crash. Not forever, just long enough that the lesson is permanently learnt.Even when it's not your fault there are still things you can do to avoid accidents. Many years ago when I was getting my motorbike license, the instructor said something that's stuck with me ever since."Ride as every other person on the road is a dickhead who is trying to kill you"If you have a crash on a motorbike it really doesn't matter who is at fault. You want to avoid a crash whether or not you have right of way. It's not really any different if you're in a car. The way you avoid crashes is to think ahead. Where are you going to go if that red car ahead suddenly swerves int your lane? If that car suddenly brakes can you stop in time not to crash into their rear end? What are you going to do if that white car pulls out in front of you?Expect accidents to happen. Think about how you can avoid them.Quite literally and without hyperbole, we are talking about life and death. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
