Head-on collisions are the most violent type of auto accident. Practice the 4 Rs:

-- read the road ahead
-- reduce your speed
-- drive to the right
-- ride off the road if necessary

A driver who's coming head-on toward you in your lane may "wake-up" and realize they've crossed into your lane, and then correct their error by heading to your left, or back into their proper lane. So, drive RIGHT and off the road if necessary. Don't swerve left.
