I copied the following from an email I got from a Chevy Dealer and I thought it was good information so I figured I’d share.
A good rule of thumb for driving in this day and age, particularly in Southern California, is to pretend that every other driver on the road is operating a vehicle for the very first time. Expect and anticipate unpredictable lane changes, sudden stops, unsignaled turns, swerving, tailgating and every other bad driving behavior imaginable. Chances are, you’ll eventually encounter someone like this – and it’s a good idea to be ready when you do. Never assume that other drivers will follow what the rest of us term the “rules of the road”.
Accidents occur every day because red lights and stop signs are disregarded, so always approach an intersection with caution. Maintain a proper distance between your car and the car in front of you; unexpected things can happen at intersections, and the car in front of you may need to brake suddenly. Do not blindly rely on having the right away. It is also not recommended to trust either other passengers in the car or your mirrors. They can both deceive you. Taking responsibility for your own driving habits, however, can prevent you from being the victim of someone else’s, and reduces your risk of having a collision.
Remember, please avoid distractions like texting, eating, and talking on the phone without a hands free device. Studies have shown distracted driving is as dangerous as drunk driving. Always keep a vigilant eye out and observe all warning signs. Stay safe out there!
