Never drink and drive.
Scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to look out or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies are not 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.

Indeed, driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives. Also, it is one of the most dangerous activities we do everyday. As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
