When you think of a car accident, it’s likely you imagine vehicles traveling at moderate to high speeds when they collide. However, a number of crashes occur during maneuvers that require very slow speeds. The most common slow maneuver that results in accidents is backing up.
When a car is traveling in reverse, whether the driver is backing out of a parking spot or backing out into oncoming traffic, it’s important for the driver to be well aware of their surroundings. If the driver backs out too quickly or fails to check their blind spots, an accident can easily result.
