Driving during the busiest traffic hours can be dangerous. With so many people congesting the lanes, people often get distracted, which is when most accidents happen. Keep your eyes on the road and scan for traffic before changing lanes or speeding up. Also, always adhere to designated speeds. You will have more time to react to a hazard and, should a collision occur, it will not be as damaging at a lower speed.
