What to Do When There is an Oncoming Vehicle in Your Lane
When a driver drifts into your land, there are steps you can take to respond and avoid a head-on collision.
- Quickly slow your vehicle by stepping of the gas and applying the brakes
- Flash your headlights and honk your horn to warn the oncoming driver
- Steer to the right of the oncoming vehicle
- Try to steer into a clear area, like the shoulder of the road
- Drive off the road if necessary – even crashing into a ditch is better than a head-on crash
