3 Step Guide to Fender Benders

At one time or another you will get into a minor accident (possibly today if you were traveling either of the major interstates in our fine city). In a split second you go from the afternoon commute, soccer practice, and lipstick to a screeching halt (with some possible expletives). Ok, it happened now what? While it may seem like there is an obvious answer, the fact is, shock, anger, or inexperience may blur your otherwise sound judgment.

With these thoughts in mind, take a minute and review my three step guide to effectively navigate a fender bender:

Step 1: Assess the situation and determine if you are injured.

Step 2 : If you are uninjured and are able to exit your vehicle safely, check on the other person/s who have experienced this accident and determine if they are injured as well.

Step 3: Call the police. Whether you think it is “bad enough” or not just call. It is a lot less complicated and eliminates any later loss of memory/changes of story with an officer present.

I hope that you are never in an accident but by using these steps you will better negotiate any fender bender. Drive Safe Cincinnati!
