Driver Safety

There are tons of driver safety rules that can be practiced to ensure a safer driving experience on the road. While you can’t prevent all accidents, practicing safe driving can help eliminate a lot of stress while driving. Some of the most common safe driving rules are:

  • Look for speed limit signs – And try your  best to stick to them. A lot of accidents occur because someone was going too fast.
  • Use turn signals – This is the simplest way to warn someone that you’re turning. The sooner you let the driver behind you know, the more time you give them to slow down.
  • Don’t tailgate – Even if you’re running late for an event, try your best to not tailgate. Besides, you’ll be running even later to an event if you rear end someone of the road. Try to use the three second rule.
    • Three second rule: If you’re driving behind a car, pick an item on the road, like a light pole and count to three, if you reach that item, such as the telephone pole, before you get to three, you’re following the car in front of you too closely.
