When driving you need to have continual awareness of your surroundings. By ensuring your mirrors are positioned properly, this will allow you to observe without taking your eyes of the road for more than a couple of seconds.

The brake pedal is there to help the car stop or significantly slow down, it is not to help you control speed. If you want to slow down slightly, reduce the gas or if you are travelling downhill select a lower gear to help you maintain speed.

Sitting in the driver’s seat correctly doesn’t sound too difficult yet many drivers have bad posture, by keeping an upright position you will be able to see the road clearly and have better control over the car.

Ensuring your lights are on in dark, wet or foggy conditions, but to be vigilant if using your full beams as these should only be used in remote locations with little or no light.
