10 tips for surviving a car accident


The most effective way to survive an accident is to prevent it. The Ministry of Emergency Situations recently (MES) warns that if there is a danger of a frontal collision, do everything possible to avoid it.

But what if there is a pole in the way? Or will the car “with all its dope" fly in a roadside ditch? The Ministry of Emergency Situations declares responsibly: in this situation, even a tree is preferable to “fly” at you at high speed by a car. Moat and fence of a private house.

If you’re flying into a tree, try to make sure (if you have time to think and take action, of course) to hit the bumper and not the fender. According to the Ministry of Emergency Situations, in a collision with a stationary object, a blow with the left or right wing is much worse in its consequences than a bumper.

You don’t have to be a professional lifeguard to determine this. In a difficult traffic situation, you should not panic – keep your composure. As long as you are in control, you are driving the car.

Next tip: before hitting an obstacle, you need to stretch all your muscles and not relax to stop the car.

Professional rescuers recommend pushing back into the chair immediately before impact and resting hands on the steering wheel. If the vehicle speed exceeds 60 km/h and the driver is not wearing a seat belt for some reason, in this case it is recommended to do the opposite: pressing my chest tightly against the steering column.

As usual, the passengers in the back seat are not wearing their seat belts. In this case, it is recommended to fall to the floor. If the sofa is a child, he must cover himself.

Immediately after a collision, the first thing to do is to determine if the car is on fire if it is gasoline, especially in the event of a rollover. In this case, you need to leave the car as soon as possible. You are for yourself and help others do it – even if they are injured. If the car door is jammed, leaving the interior of the car through the windows. If they are not open, they must smash any scrap item.

Getting out of the car, the driver and passengers should move away from it as far as possible – and if it explodes?

As a last piece of advice, the Ministry of Emergency Situations says the following: being in a safe place, you must immediately call rescuers and firefighters.

Editorial opinion

We don’t want to question the recommendation of professional lifeguards. However, some items on the list seem at least controversial. Do you really want to stretch your muscles to fall to the floor or snuggle up against the steering column with danger? Well… I don’t know. If you agree, write in the comments.
