|Be alert to the traffic around you as you drive. Make a routine
of looking behind and from side by checking your mirrors every
few seconds. Check your blind spots by turning your head to
look over your shoulder. Try to keep other vehicles out of your
blind spot by changing your speed and try not to drive in other
vehicles' blind spots. Be extra alert at dawn and dusk when
drivers have problem adjusting to the changing light.
Keep some space around your vehicle. Anticipate other vehicles'
movements and make allowances for possible errors. Slow moving
vehicles especially cycles, rickshaws, carts have the tendency
to turn without giving signal or signaling at a very short
notice. Watch for people in parked vehicles — they may be
about to pull out in front of you or may open the door without
noticing your vehicle.
