This is the second part of a four part series of safety tips we will be posting to help new and experienced drivers be safe on the roads.
6. Use Turn Signals – The turn signals are in place to let you tell other drives what you plan to do. Even though you cannot count on others to use it, you should always use your turn signals before you turn or make a lane change.
7. Come to a Complete Stop – When breaking at a stop sign or a red light, you should always come to a complete stop. This should be done even if you do not think other vehicles are around you.
8. Plan on Changing Weather – When storms are approaching or there is a forecast for rain, snow, or fog, you should use extra precautions when driving and always stay alert to avoid unnecessary accidents.
9. Be Patient – Impatient drivers can cause accidents even when you are avoiding them and being attentive. It is important that you stay patient at all times while driving to avoid rushing and potential issues.
10. Don’t Assume Anything About Other Drivers – Be sure to never make the assumptions that other drivers on the road will do what they should or what you think they will be doing.
