  • Keep your gas tank at least half full at all times to avoid running out of gas if you happen to get stuck in traffic.
  • Always look and steer where you want to go to ensure you can react with your vehicle's movements.
  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly, avoid any sudden increase or abrupt decrease in speed to always stay in control.
  • Always drive slowly regardless of what other drivers are doing.
  • Try to keep your inertia going when traveling up hills, never let your vehicle come to a stop going up a hill.
  • And as always, unless you absolutely have to, if the weather is very bad outside, stay home.
