Even if you have excellent judgment while driving, it may be challenging at times to integrate information from several sources at once. This can slow driver reaction time and inhibit safe driving in dangerous situations. It’s also possible that pain or stiffness in muscles or joints could make it difficult to react quickly during emergencies. A combination of treating the cause and changing driving habits can help you be successful at safe driving.
The average driver makes about 20 major decisions during each mile driven - and often has less than one-half second to react to avoid a potential collision.
