Always Observe Driving Rules

It is crucial to follow all driving laws and observe the conditions of the road when driving. If you see any vehicle or driver that looks dangerous, keep your distance. If you see a vehicle 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.
