Always Be A Responsible Driver
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.
Thus, it is indeed important that we drive defensively in order to avoid accidents as much as possible.
Here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:

– Never assume you know the other driver’s intention.
– Also, 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. Take away all distractions such as mobile phones unstrapped toddlers, etc.
