Driving can be very dangerous if you are not paying attention or if you are not driving in a safe and legal manner. This is especially true when driving on a highway or a freeway which requires even more alertness and caution than local streets. It is important to always drive with caution and follow the conditions of the road to prevent accidents which may have devastating consequences for you and for others.
