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 turn signal or lane, be patient and make sure there is no obstruction to your view. Drive defensively to ensure the safety of surrounding vehicles, drivers, and pedestrians.
