At least the chances of getting into an accident is lower though. If bring up the topic about other irresponsible drivers hitting you, then you really cannot say anything or do any prevention since it is not your fault. Except not sitting inside a car but that was out of the question.But then drive slow does not mean it is safe too. I have read many cases where the other party on the other side of the highway who was speeding, loose control jump over the divider and whack the innocent fellow driving at speed limit.....
What I can say is, drive slowly and responsibly to prevent yourself from getting into an accident that might involve other innocent road users. But it is easier said than done.
