  1.  Don’t leave the driveway without securing each passenger in the car. Safety belts save thousands of lives each year!
  2. Remember that driving too fast or too slow can increase the likelihood of collisions.
  3. Be alert! If you notice a car straddling the center line, weaving, making wide turns, stopping abruptly or responding slowly to traffic signals, the driver may be impaired.
  4. Avoid an impaired driver by slowing down, letting the driver pass, pulling onto the shoulder or turning right at the nearest corner. If it appears that an oncoming car is crossing into your lane, pull over to the roadside, sound the horn and flash your lights.
  5. Notify the police immediately after seeing a motorist who is driving suspiciously.
  6. Follow the rules of the road. Don’t contest the “right of way” or try to race another car during a merge.
  7. Don’t stop in the road to talk with a pedestrian or other drivers.
  8. Avoid eye contact or making obscene gestures with/at an aggressive driver.
  9. Don’t tailgate.
  10. Remember, while driving, be cautious, aware and responsible.
