Collision Traps

Rear Collision Traps

A Collision trap can occur to the rear of your vehicle. Many times you will be crowded from behind risking being rear ended if you stop or slow suddenly. Change lanes or gradually slow to let the vehicle around.


Since you can't always avoid a collision. Here are some tips to help you protect yourself in a rear collision:

  • Given room, accelerate or change lanes in order to avoid or reduce the severity of the collision.
  • If you are at an intersection and there isn't any traffic pull forward across the intersection.
  • Before impact release the brake. Be ready to apply your brake so you won't impact vehicle in front of yours.
  • Brace yourself pressing your head against the backrest and gripping the steering wheel.
  • Honk your horn and/or Flash your brake lights to alert other drivers.
