The National Safety Council's 3 Step DDC Collision Prevention Formula

The National Safety Council suggests a simple formula that can help you prevent vehicle collisions.

Recognize the hazard

  • Scan the road ahead.
  • One block in urban areas.
  • To the next curve, hill or overpass in rural areas or on expressways.
  • Check your mirrors, inside and out, every three to five seconds.
  • Keep your attention focused on driving.

Understanding the defense

  • Know what to do.
  • Use the "what-if" strategy to help keep your attention focused on driving.

Act correctly, in time

  • Do the right thing - before the situation gets out of control.
  • Avoid the hazard in time to prevent the collision.
