While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. Common events on the road can just as swiftly become safety hazards. Be a proactive driver, rather than a reactive one. Then, keep in mind that driving defensively prepares you for emergency situations. Also, practice safe driving habits on the road at all times, even when it is empty, and even when there is no police officer around. Lastly, use road signals to communicate with those you are driving alongside.
