Sudden On-coming Vehicle(s)

This situation can turn very deadly very quickly. Always be aware of what is going on around you u2013 on all sides. Doing this won’t prevent a driver from coming directly at you, but it will buy you some time. In situations like this, even a second or two counts. If you see that an oncoming driver, for whatever reason, is coming at you, immediately flash your lights and sound your horn. If you are dealing with an inattentive driver, that may be enough to wake them up so that they correct their position and get back on course. If you must brake, do so as you try to get to the side of the road away from the oncoming driver. If a collision is unavoidable, try to position your vehicle so that the crash won’t be directly head on. If you are hit at an angle, the impact of the collision may be less severe.
