Defensive Driving


When I see patients who are victims of accidents, I often find myself thinking about how I might have avoided that accident. So I have slip-proof tiles in my shower. I watch where I’m going. I don’t run around my house in stocking feet. I don’t drink and drive. There are just a lot of simple things you can do to prevent the vast majority of injuries. But sometimes crazy things happen and there’s just no way to prevent an injury. Sometimes people drive into oncoming traffic…just when you least expect it…
