Tips for Safe Driving and Avoiding Accidents

Follow these ten tips to be safe behind the wheel.

1.  Avoid texting while driving.  If you must use your phone, use a hands free device.

2.  Do not multitask while driving;  it creates more distractions from the road.

3.  Refrain from driving when drowsy;  pull over to take a 20-minute power nap.

4.  Secure loose objects in the car.

5.  Do not drive through red lights.  Make sure you come to a complete stop at stop signs.

6.  Follow the speed limits.

7.  NEVER drive drunk.  Plan to call a cab or a ride before you start drinking.

8.  Always wear your seatbelt.

9.  Don't follow too closely to other cars.

10.  Implement defensive driving techniques (assume everyone else is an idiot driver).
