We can prevent a lot of accidents on the road if we think before we act. I see many people in a big hurry while driving and I think, there they go, in a hurry for an accident. Aggressive driving kills people, why would we want to behave in a way that hurts or even kills people?

Tailgating is a major problem on the road. Stay one car length behind the vehicle in front of you for every 10 miles per hour you are driving. If you are driving 70 mph then you need to stay at least 7 car lengths behind the car in front of you.

Remember that when entering the interstate, the people already on the interstate have the right of way. Be humble and be careful. I see so many drivers entering the interstate who punch their gas pedal barely squeezing in front of a vehicle already on the interstate making for a dangerous situation. If they were to apply their brake instead and merge in behind the vehicle it would have been a much safer situation. I saw one driver in particular trying to merge onto the interstate and got angry at a vehicle already on the interstate because he couldn’t merge in front of him while there was room behind them and all he had to do was use his brakes to adjust. I see many people who don’t consider braking as an option when in many cases it is a safer alternative than accelerating.
