Everyone loves a good road sign. They’re a reminder to be aware of how we interact with the world around us. For example, changing lanes to the right is a dangerous maneuver, because the driver in the lane to your right may be accelerating or braking, or both. In addition, once the driver has changed lanes, the driver directly in front of you may also be changing lanes, and you may not be able to see around them.
Always avoid distractions
Distractions are everywhere, and not just the obvious ones like the speed limit sign or that sudden dip in the road up ahead. You can notice distractions just as easily in the way you’re trying to get your points across, the way you’re trying to learn, or the way you’re trying to unwind. Your attention is the only way to gain control over your mind, so you have to keep it focused on one thing at a time.
Drive within speed limit
Speed limits can be annoying, but they’re there for a reason. They’re used to keep you safe and help keep traffic flowing. And the truth is people often speed, even when they aren’t supposed to. But if you want drivers to obey the law and keep traffic flowing safely, you need to show them the bright red light. This means making it clear to others that you understand and accept the speed limit as a limit, rather than as a suggestion. And as a result, people will follow the law—and that’s a good thing.
Never drink & drive
Driving can be a hassle, but it can be an even bigger hassle if you’re already drunk. Too many people fail to realize that even though they’re capable of driving, their ability to drive safely will be greatly impaired if they’ve had too much to drink. You could stop at a friend’s house and drive them home, or just drive to a nearby bar. That’s why it’s important to be responsible when you’re drinking, it’s not just about public safety, it’s about your health and the safety of others.
Always wear a seatbelt
Although you might be tempted to ignore it, the law says that you must wear a seatbelt at all times when you are in the car. So that means that someone who is belted into the car but is driving recklessly or aggressively or what have you is committing a crime by doing so.It’s hard to imagine that sometimes people don’t wear their seatbelts. A few minutes of driving may not seem like that big of a deal, but you’d be surprised how fast things can go bad if you aren’t wearing your seatbelt.
Follow traffic signals
Traffic signals are there to help vehicles avoid collisions. But, sometimes, they are not enough. When the signal turns green, it is up to you to avoid running into the car in front of you. And when it turns red, it is up to you to decide if you are too close to the car in front of you.Before heading out on the road, think about where you’re going and how to get there and always follow the traffic signals. It’s one of the most basic rules of the road.
When you’re in unfamiliar territory, you should drive with a seasoned driver, a GPS, and a map and always follow the traffic signs. And while you’re out there, make sure to always look for other signs of danger, like a gas station that’s closed, a hitchhiker who’s not a good match for you, or a group of people who might want to take offense at your driving.
