Here Are Another 5 Tips To Help You Drive Safely:

  1. Stay Alert – Actively pay attention to your actions and those of the drivers around you when you are driving.
  2. Avoid Assumptions – Don’t make the mistake of assuming that other drivers are going to do or what you think they should do.
  3. Use Turn Signals – While you can’t depend on others always signaling their intentions when driving, you can certainly control whether or not they have realistic expectations for your actions. Always use your turn signals in advance of making a lane change or turning.
  4. Buckle Up – Wearing your seat belt is an essential safety tip for drivers. Not only are you more likely to get injured in an accident if you aren’t wearing a seat belt, you can also be fined for failing to do so.
  5. Follow Traffic Signals – Pay close attention to and obey stop signs and traffic lights.
