of Least Resistance (Continued)
Say, for example,
your vehicle is sliding off the road and headed for a culvert.
Avoiding the edge of the culvert will keep your vehicle
from tripping and rolling over. To do so you have to impact
a fence or some bushes. You would probubly do better to
hit those objects than the culvert.
If you have impacted
one object or vehicle, your vehicle may still be moving
and headed or another impact. Your alertness and ability
to control your vehicle may allow you to avoid or reduce
the impact of this next collision. Say, the second collision
involves avoiding a head-on collision. Being able to redirect
your vehicle and sideswipe the other car can significantly
reduce the severity of the impact.
