Excessive speed, no seat belt and not paying attention...... all the
ingredients for a deadly accident... slow down and use your seat belt.
Cars that are stopped at the end of the slow traffic could turn on their
emergency flashers briefly to warn others approaching the situation. While they
shouldn't have to, I practice doing that and I'd rather use my
flashers for a few seconds than to be reear-ended by someone now realizing
traffic has stopped or nearly stopped. After a few seconds there's more
cars stopped behind you and you can cancel using the flashers.
