Cutting someone off

Cutting off another driver is not only bad manners, but it’s also dangerous. You want to be predictable when you’re driving, so wait for a safe opening in traffic before proceeding.

Driving too close to the car in front of you

t’s important to leave proper braking room behind the person in front of you. This way you’re always prepared for a sudden stop. A good rule of thumb is to keep three seconds from the vehicle in front of you.

Forgetting to make adjustments

Too many drivers don’t take advantage of the fact that seats, mirrors, and most steering wheels are adjustable. Make sure you make these adjustments for a more comfortable and safe ride.

Forgetting to remove the gas nozzle from your car

It can get stressful at the gas station when other drivers are waiting behind you. But do take a few seconds before driving away to make sure everything is in order. Don’t forget to return the gas nozzle to the pump and close your gas flap.

Forgetting to turn off your high beams

Most people use their high beams more often than needed. They should only be used in a rural area or on an empty stretch of highway, and when there are no cars in front.
