When driving, it is important to always focus on the road and be aware of your surroundings. If you are crossing a busy intersection, activate your turn signal or blinker before making any turns. If you are turning in a road where there is no dedicated left turn signal or lane, be patient and make sure there is no obstruction to your view. Driving with caution and following the conditions of the road can help prevent accidents which may have devastating consequences for you and for others.
