Driving Safely: Check the Brakes Before You Start

You are driving along the highway, radio playing your favorite tunes and the weather is fairly decent, except for a few scattered clouds. Keeping up with the traffic, you don’t notice you are slightly going over the speed limit. A deer runs out in front of the car ahead of you and he slams on his brakes. You react quickly, but your foot hits the floor and your car keeps going, crashing into the backend of the stopped vehicle. The next thing you remember is waking up in a hospital.
