Motor vehicles accidents are the most common cause of accidental death in the United States. Every 12 minutes someone dies in a crash, every 10 seconds and injury occurs, and every 5 seconds a crash occurs.

Take deep breaths in traffic or listen to soothing music, and don’t take other drivers actions personally.
