Driving defensively requires confidence in a driver which would help prevent any accident. One should always be ready to check for any errors as it will help correct adverse and changing conditions.

Some of the basic tips have been mentioned below:

(1)Always observe the traffic rules and respond to errors made by others. There needs to be an action which is required at any time which is just more than changing lanes.

(2)Always watch the traffic to both the left and right of you as well as to the far and near of you. It is advisable to stay to the right when one finds an automobile with only one headlight.

(3) Check out for the unexpected changes in flow of traffic. Just be careful with what is going to several cars ahead so that one can adjust the driving to avoid any situations which may arise.

(5)Drive at a proper pace. Driving at a fast pace or at a slow pace increases the probability of accidents.

(6)One needs to take stops when driving long even if not tired. If at any point of time one feels sleepy he should stop at that point itself.

... though if one is tired or sleepy, one is not able to do any of the above as your normal attention and focus is affected and you are more liable to make errors of judgement.

So, always make sure you avoid driving when too tired, and stop for plenty of rest breaks esp. when driving at night or when too exhausted. Even black coffee can't make up for a good solid nap!

Also, a good idea is to let some fresh air circulate in the car as it prevents sleepiness!
