TOP 5 DRIVING SAFETY RULES
1-Stay focused, keeping your hands on the wheel. Concentrate on the road, keeping your hands at the 10 o’clock-2 o’clock position
2-Keep your eyes moving. Continuously look in your mirrors and scan the road ahead, checking for hazards and slowing traffic so you can anticipate problems before they develop.
3-Go with the flow. Most drivers know that speeding is a major cause of accidents, but driving too slow can be dangerous, too. Drive at speeds that most other vehicles are going.
4-Make yourself visible. Many accidents occur because drivers didn’t see the other car. There are a few simple ways to make your presence known, making the road safer for everyone. (USE YOUR HEADLIGHTS!)
5-Resist road rage. Aggressive drivers may infuriate you, but retaliating with similar tactics is dangerous. Take a proactive approach in dealing with road rage. Use these strategies in specific road-rage scenarios:
- Tailgaters: If the driver behind you is right on your bumper, use your hands.
- Speeders: If you see a car speeding or aggressively changing lanes behind you, stay in your lane while maintaining your speed.
