Whether using their cellphones or other electronic devices, mobile phone use is one of the leading causes of accidents. Many drivers still don’t understand the danger of distracted driving and continue to endanger themselves, resulting in collisions requiring accident towing Vancouver.

As a driver, it’s your duty to keep yourself and others safe, whether pedestrians, your passengers or other drivers. Here are our top tips to ensure a safe journey when dealing with reckless drivers.

Drive at a Safe Distance

In normal circumstances, it’s usually recommended to keep the distance of one car between you and the car in front and behind you. Should you run into a situation where you notice someone on their phone or is angry, keep at least a few cars distance to be extra safe. This gives you enough space and time to react safely and quickly, should something happen.

Don’t Drive Frustrated or Tired

Driving angry, tired or upset could be detrimental to both your health and the health of other drivers. Being in an unstable state of mind emotionally slows down your reactions and makes it difficult for you to think clearly or make clear-headed decisions. It could distract you to the point where you won’t be able to spot the problem

Get Out of Their Way

If you notice someone on their phone or is significantly distracted, speed up or slow down to just get out of the way and have peace of mind. You never know when there might be an unexpected issue so it’s best to stay in the clear.


Be a quiet observer. It’s important to be mindful of other drivers while also being safe as to not spend too much time with your eyes peeled from the road. Safely take a look every 30-60 seconds and take appropriate action if you notice something isn’t right.
