Good Driving Habits

Always check the mirrors the rear view and both the side view mirrors before changing lanes. A sudden maneuver without checking the traffic around you can put you as well as the others in danger.

The combination of drinking and driving is more dangerous then anyone can guess. Do not consume alcohol if you have to drive. In case you have had more drinks and are not sober enough, take a cab.

Be extra careful when driving with your children. Their young impressionable minds will pick up your driving habits; you in a way are their first driving instructor.
