If you are a regular driver, then you most definitely are aware of the fact that not everyone drives as well as you do. Some may speed through aggressively, while others may wander into another lane simply because they are not attentive enough. Then there are those who follow too closely and make sudden turns without giving prior warning.

In order to reduce the risk of these road hazards, you need to put certain rules of defensive driving into practice right away. Some of them are mentioned below:

1.Stay alert: Being alert allows you to react quickly to potential problems. For instance, when the driver in the car ahead slams on the brakes at the last minute.

2.Stay focused: Always stay focused on the road conditions, your speed, observe traffic laws, signs and signals, follow directions and be aware of the cars around you.

3.And Watch out for the other guy: Part of staying in control is being aware of other drivers and roadway users around you, so you're less likely to be caught off guard.
