Rarely is someone
that is rear-ended at fault in a collision. If you're
stopped at an intersection and see or hear another car
approaching from the rear, you can either:
If there is room
ahead of your vehicle, pull forward and/or to the side.
This will give the other car more time to avoid or reduce
the severity of the impact.
If a crash can't
be avoided, release your brake before being hit. The force
of the impact will be reduced and directed into moving
your vehicle forward.
