Defensive Driving Tips

In the United States, car accidents are the primary cause of death for individuals aged from 1 to 29. To try to counter this trend, the Wisconsin Department of Public Safety has issued tips to help train more defensive and well-informed drivers. The steps of this procedure are:

  • Scan
  • Identify
  • Predict
  • Decide
  • Execute

Known as SIPDE, this practical guideline for driving behaviors can be invaluable in limiting the number and severity of motor vehicle accidents that occur to innocent individuals.

If you have been hurt in a car crash caused by a reckless driver, despite your observance of SIPDE protocols, you might be able to seek financial compensation for your damages and losses. Contact the Sheboygan car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 to speak directly with a skilled and experienced lawyer about your case in a no cost, no obligation initial consultation.

Defense Driving with SIPDE

Acronyms such as SIPDE can help drivers to remember what actions they are supposed to take on the roadway, but it is more critical that they practice these behaviors so that they become routine. The following list outlines the individual steps of SIPDE:

  • Scan the road and mirrors for potential dangers on a regular basis
  • Identify hazardous conditions that could lead to collisions
  • Predict how a situation could play out so that you can take advance action to prevent an accident
  • Decide on an action for every situation
  • Execute or enact an action as soon as you make the decision

Regrettably, although you may observe all appropriate driving laws and even practice the steps advised by SIPDE, you are still vulnerable to negligent or reckless motorists. A civil lawsuit can help you to hold these individuals accountable for the harm that they have caused to you.
