Things to Consider When Driving
When driving, it is important to follow all driving laws and the conditions of the road. If you see any vehicle or driver that looks dangerous, keep your distance. If you see a vehicle weaving in and out of the lanes, following too closely, or traveling at a higher rate of speed, move over a few lanes and get out of their way. Drive defensively to ensure the safety of surrounding vehicles, drivers, and pedestrians.
Practice safe driving habits on the road at all times, even when it is empty, even when there is no police officer around to make sure you make a full and complete stop.
It is important to always abide by all traffic laws and to do your part to prevent devastating consequences to you and others. Thus, if you find yourself unable to safely operate a vehicle, there are always other options for transportation.
