Quick Stops


Lane Courtesy


When driving on multilane roads, leave the left lane for vehicles that are passing. That’s not only courteous driving, but it’s the law in many states.


There are a number of benefits to keeping the left lane open. Traffic flows more smoothly, and there will be less congestion. As a result, accidents are less likely to happen. Also, you’ll reach your destination more quickly.


When a lane is closed ahead, safely merge to the open lanes as soon as possible to help traffic maintain its flow. If traffic is stopped, merge one vehicle at a time where the lane closes.


Be sure to signal your intentions before changing lanes.




Distracted Driving – Revisited


The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has recommended a nationwide ban on the use of cellphones and text messaging while driving. Cellphones are a factor in a significant percentage of distracted-driving accidents, many of which involve fatalities.
