Asian Pacific Islander Community Outreach - Safe Driving Tips

Defensive driving should be practiced by every driver. Some factors that contribute to the cause of traffic collisions include:

  • Driving under the influence or alcohol or drugs
  • Unsafe turning
  • Unsafe speed
  • Following too close
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Improper merging

To prevent traffic collisions and minimize injuries that could be sustained in traffic collisions:

  • Never drink and drive
  • Do not exceed the speed limit
  • Follow the three second space cushion rule
  • Do not make unnecessary lane changes
  • Have enough room to merge into traffic
  • Wear your seatbelt
  • Properly secure your child in a child safety seat
