Drive defensively – Defensive driving is an important measure for accident prevention.
“The defensive driver tries to recognize potentially hazardous situations sufficiently in advance to allow time to safely maneuver past them. The defensive driver assumes that other drivers may make mistakes and is on guard in the event an error is made. The defensive driver searches ahead of what is immediately in front, to have advance warning of approaching hazards.”

Properly maintain vehicles – Vehicles that are routinely serviced and inspected are safer for traveling on the road.
Remove distractions – Cell phones, food, and other distractions that may take one’s focus off of the road should be removed or set aside to avoid costly mistakes while driving.
Never drive impaired – Driving under the influence of things like alcohol or even fatigue can lead to disastrous results. It is never a good idea to drive impaired.
