When driving, it is important to follow all driving laws and the conditions of the road. If you see any car or driver that looks dangerous, keep your distance. If you see a car 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.
