The center line on the highway is not enough to protect drivers

When driving along our highways, we often assume that everyone will respect the center line. We don’t usually worry that someone will driver over the center line, so we don’t drive defensively in this regard or watch out for this potentiality.

However, people drive over the line more than most of us realize. Whether due to intoxication, exhaustion, poor vision or many other reasons, people drive over the center line on highways with some frequency, and when they do, the results are usually disastrous.

A Recent Accident in Tennessee

According to a report today in the Tennessean, a woman crossed the center line on State Highway 7 early this morning in Columbia, Tennessee, causing a head-on collision that killed the driver who crossed the line and seriously injured five others, including two children.

Blood tests are under way to determine whether drugs, alcohol or other chemical issues were in play to cause the accident.

The important takeaway for us is to always use tremendous caution when driving on highways that have no abutment between you and oncoming drivers. You just never know when someone could veer into your lane and cause a tragic head-on collision.
