Did you know that car accidents are the fifth most common cause of death in the United States? This is a staggering statistic. In addition to staying alert and aware of the other cars on the road, the best thing to do is practice defensive driving at all times.
Below are some defensive driving tips:
- Keep your eyes on the road at all times.
- Wear your seat belt.
- Obey the speed limit.
- Come to a complete stop at stop signs.
- Always use your turn signals to change lanes.
- Yield to pedestrians crossing the street.
- Leave enough space between your car and the car in front of you.
- Don’t text and drive.
- Never operate a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
