What to do if going to be rear-ended?

Recommended Posts

In my email messages, I received the following question and answer post. I had been thinking about this scenario recently particularly about putting the transmission in neutral and a foot hard on the brake pedal and pushing back into the seat as the default option.

Interesting comments because I usually stop with enough gap so I can see the car in front's rear tyres on the road surface so I can possibly go around if they break down etc.

Fortunately, I have only had one incident where I started to move into the oncoming lane; still got impacted but not too bad and no damage to me.
