Driving can be very dangerous as anything can happen very quickly. Thus, it is important to drive safely and defensively. Make sure your mirrors are adjusted properly, use your turn signals and check your blind spot every time you change lanes or decide to pass a slower vehicle. Remember to watch for cars merging onto the freeway and give them adequate space to merge into the slow lane.
