  Mistake #9: Forgetting Safety  


"The safest course is to do nothing against one's conscience. With this secret, we can enjoy life and have no fear from death."~ Voltaire (1694-1778), French Philosopher and Writer

9. Letting safety slip your mind. The total cost of traffic accidents is nearly $300 billion per year, but here's a more startling statistic: half of all Americans will suffer a painful traffic injury at some point in their lives, at the current rate of 2.8 million traffic injuries in a year. What's your chance of a fatal or incapacitating crash in your lifetime? For an average driver, it's a sobering ten percent. For habitual drunk drivers, crashes usually put them in wheelchairs or graveyards. Best auto safety booster: http://www.autosafetyhub.org.
