From Transport Evolved.
It’s well-proven that when we practice (or even think) about what to do in an accident that we’re more prepared and able to make smarter, safer decisions when it happens for real – so today, as the weather in the Northern Hemisphere tracks toward snow and ice,, we’re re-examining what to do if you are involved in an accident involving an electric vehicle.
Disclaimer: while the tips mentioned in this video are a good general primer, you should not rely solely on this information, and should consider attending a first aid course and enrolling in an advanced driver or rider program to improve your skillset.
