Multi-car accidents happen for a number of reasons, from speeding to making abrupt lane changes. Driving too closely to drivers also increases the risk of an accident. Watch your speed and keep some space between your car and the vehicle in front of you. Staying out of other drivers’ blind spots is also a defensive driving practice to exercise.
