Step one: Keep in mind
Always keep an eye out for
other drivers. Never assume
other drivers know what they're
doing. Always expect the worst.
In blunt terms, assume that all
other drivers are idiots. You will
drive more defensively and,
therefore, become a better driver
if you think that way. http://www.askmen.com/cars/car_tips_
Use visual scanning. We're not
just referring to watching where
you're going, but also watching
your side and behind you.
It's also a good idea to read signs
and lane markings to make sure
you are in the correct lane. http://www.askmen.com/cars/car_tips_60/64_car_tip.html#ixzz2EsCvaiIU
Be ready for danger. Begin
braking early if you see a problem
ahead. This will give you more
room to stop safely and will also
give drivers behind you the
opportunity to brake in time.
Step Four: Use your seat
Always wear your seat belt. Wear
your seat belt even if you're just going
on a short trip. Studies have
determined that many collisions occur
close to home because when one is
more familiar with the area, they pay
less attention to their surroundings.
Step five: Don't fight other
Don't let rude drivers get under your skin. If someone cuts you off or is tailgating you, don't provoke them. This will only escalate the situation and could lead to deadly consequences. Keep your emotions under control. [http://www.askmen.com/cars/car_tips_60/64b_car_tip.html#ixzz2ExnfB1XP
Step Six: Go Back to
No matter how experienced you are, there are some basic rules you should always follow to keep yourself and fellow drivers safe. Always wear your seatbelt, no matter how familiar the surroundings or short the trip. Never drink and driveeven one drink can impair judgment and reflexes. And no matter how tempting, resist the urge to talk or text on your cell phone! Avoiding unnecessary distractions and dangers keep the roads safer for everyone.
