Accident Preparedness in Motor Homes

The word “accident” almost presupposes that you cannot be prepared. In some senses, that would be right. However, accidents do happen, and there are things you can do to be prepared just in case.

Ways to avoid accidents

One of the biggest causes of accidents is distraction. One huge distraction is talking or texting on a cell phone. In a word, don’t. No matter how well you think you have control of your vehicle, it takes less than a second for the scenario to change. You cannot be ready if you have only half of your attention on the rig.

Eating while driving can be a distraction. If you are eating or drinking, and the road situation becomes dangerous, stop. It’s better to be hungry than dead. Another strategy is to practice driving regularly. Veteran drivers may sometimes be more at risk than a novice because they become overconfident. A driver should make a point of being aware of her surroundings at all times as a preventative measure.

When you can’t avoid the accident

First, make sure all of the travelers in your vehicle are safe, and uninjured. If any are wounded, call 911, and then tend to the “patients.” Record your observations about the accident, and take pictures of the vehicles, and surroundings. When possible, exchange insurance information with the other drivers. Have your driver’s license, registration, and insurance information ready for the emergency teams and the police. Let them assess the drivability of your vehicle.

Drive safely, and be prepared.
