Safety Driving Tips

  • Aim high in steering, i.e., don’t make your steering adjustments based on what is directly in front of you, but rather what is down the road. If the drive is winding to the right, look as far into the turn as possible. This will improve your safety and make your shifts smoother.
  • Scan the road 1/2 mile a full mile ahead to recognize potential hazards in time.
  • Be a proactive driver, rather than a reactive one. Driving defensively prepares you for emergency situations.
  • Use road signals to communicate with those you are driving alongside.
