Relying on technologies rather than your own sight -- Do not completely depend on technologies as they have limitations and are only there to assist you. Your sight is still your best sensor so make sure to use it.
Make it a habit to regularly check your car – Regular car maintenance like changing oil and tire rotations is not enough, it is still important to go for a basic safety check before traveling such as brake lights, signal lights, headlights, and tire pressure.
Do not drive aggressively – Stay calm when driving and allow yourself ample time to reach your destination. Do not Overspeed.
Driving when stressed – Don’t put yourself and others on the road at risk. Avoid stress factors by recognizing the causes. Start a healthy fitness journey and eat healthy food. It’s also important to create a healthy home to boost your mood.
Do not multitask while driving- Focus on the road. Avoid texting, eating, and anything that you might get distracted by. Never take your eyes off the road.
