Scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to look out or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph.
 
We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph, thus you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead.
 
Additionally, being a responsible driver includes not drinking if you’re driving.


Prevention Is Always Better Than Cure

 
While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat.
 
Traffic accidents, as a matter of fact, are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
 
Thus it is indeed crucial that everyone drives defensively in order to avoid traffic accidents as much as possible.
 
So, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:
 
Always drive at a controllable speed.
 
It is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention.
 
Be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
 
This one, we should never neglect. Yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.
 
Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
