Take a look at the rules of the road driving manual. Brush up on your knowledge of driving laws. Keep yourself sharp by knowing the right thing to do on the road.

Take it easy behind the wheel. Driving in a calm, smooth fashion is much safer than jerking a vehicle around. Smooth driving keeps the driver in control when they’re behind the wheel. It will help keep your car running well for years, too.

Stay alert by avoiding fatigue. It’s a good idea to pull over for coffee every couple of hours. Get out, stretch your legs, and focus your eyes on the scenery to help them adjust from the road zone. When you’ve reached your limit, stop and rest for a while.

Keep a buffer distance between your car and others. A good rule to go by is to keep one car length of space for every 10 mph between you and the vehicle in front of you. For example, if you were driving 60 mph, keep a distance of about six cars between you and the person in front of you for any sudden stops or quick maneuvers.

Distractions are a major cause of accidents, so cut them out. Put the cell phone on silent so you’re not tempted to answer if someone calls. Turn the volume on the radio down, or turn the radio off so that you can focus on driving.
