Moreover, since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate. Maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.
Always Practice Responsible Driving
While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities we do daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents 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.
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.
Always prepare yourself to positively react to other drivers.
Yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.
Finally, stay focused and remove all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
