Will you get into a car accident?

Will you get into a car accident?

Driving is one of the most dangerous activities. Whether you accept it or not, it is the activity that takes the most lives every year. Why is that? Well there are quite a few factors contributing to dangerous situations on the road. Driving in hazardous weather conditions is when many accidents occur. The human factor comes into play often during dangerous weather. Lack of experience or human error is what makes things worse.

Will you get into a car accident?

It is not something most of us would want to think about, but it is good to discuss. Driving experience is not the only factor that matters when it comes safe driving. Outside factors often contribute to accidents on the road. Such are always weather and road conditions.

Snow and Ice

The winter means you should prepare for snow and ice on the road. Winter is the time when the roads become really dangerous. Snow and ice contribute to slick roads and lower visibility. Snow accumulations compromises the traction between the tires and the road.

Moreover, even if you are extra vigilant you never know what other drivers may do. Someone driving at a high speed can skid and lose control of their vehicle. This is when the likelihood of accidents increases. So, always be alert and keep a safe distance between you other drivers on the road.


Loosing control of your vehicle is a scary feeling and it can happen while raining. One of the most dangerous moments while driving is during the first few minutes when it starts raining. Especially if the weather is hot and the asphalt heated.

When there is no rain for a long time grease and dirt accumulate on the roads, thus when it starts raining suddenly the road becomes very slick and dangerous. The water forms a thin layer which makes the road very slick.

To prevent accidents slow down and exercise extreme caution. Turn on your headlights, stay toward the middle of the road to avoid puddles and do not use cruise control. If you start to hydroplane, do not hit the breaks suddenly or turn the wheel. Release the gas pedal slowly and steer straight. Keep calm and focus on the road and your vehicle.

Freezing Rain

If you should go out and drive in freezing rain, then you must adjust your driving. The first thing you need to remember is to slow down. The roads become extremely dangerous when freezing rain starts to drop. Calm yourself and prepare for a longer ride. Try to be as smooth as possible in your driving.

Apply the gas and the breaks gently. Next thing to remember is to keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you. Make sure you keep your windshield warmed to prevent freezing as this will reduce your visibility. Driving in freezing rain is a serious matter and you should be alert and focused.

Rush Hour and Urban Driving

Accidents happen in the city more often than probably on the highway. Busy city streets pose a risk for both pedestrians and drivers alike.

While driving in the city during rush hour, and on the highway alike, drivers should be extra careful. On the highway other drivers often make sudden lane changes or hit the brakes and this is when fender benders happen. When there is traffic you should drive slowly and be prepared to stop at any given moment.

In urban settings drivers should also be extra careful. It is important to keep an eye for pedestrians and bicyclists. Watch for crossing people even if there is no marked crosswalk. While bicyclists may have a designated bike lane, drivers lane often narrows suddenly and this could cause accidents. Pay attention and drive with the speed limit in urban settings and on the highway as well.

Both outside in nature and the city can create dangerous driving conditions. Thus, it is important that drivers adjust their habits and drive accordingly to the situation. Driving in hazardous conditions should not be taken slightly. Even the most experienced drivers make mistakes because they forget simple things which lead to accidents.

If you are moving across the country or the state often it is good idea to avoid driving and hire a professional auto transport company to ship your vehicle. This saves you time and worries, as well as wear and tear on the vehicle. For more information call us or request a car shipping quote online. Thank you.

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
