HOW TO AVOID CRASHING INTO TROOPERS





Slow down, move over and look where you want to go.

Slow down - BEFORE you get near the crash site

You should be going under the speed limit to begin with. DO NOT brake hard when you are near the crash.

Move over - if it is clear and safe to do so

If you can't move over a whole lane, don't panic - move as far to the left or right in your lane as possible and slow down.

Do not brake suddenly

That can cause you to slide into the cars stopped on the shoulder.

Look where you want to go - not at the vehicles on the shoulder

Focus on the road and look at the path you want to follow.
