Driving is not an easy task. We always have to be very aware of what’s going on on the road. We should be very attentive and should look through the side and rear view mirrors once every 10 seconds. I learned that from my driving instructor at a driving school in Fort Worth.
On the road, you will never know what’s gonna happen. So it is very important to be ready and use your good judgement in every driving situation. For example, if you are driving on the right lane on an Interstate highway where the Left Lane is for Passing Only and someone’s driving on that lane slower than the speed limit, the possibility of backing up the traffic is high. If that driver won’t keep up with the speed limit or won’t speed up to move over in front of you, you just have to speed up a little so the cars behind will be able to have the chance to pass him or her.
I experienced that situation when I was going out of town. I had to speed up ahead a little to let the traffic on the left lane move over to my lane (right) so they can pass the slow moving car on the left (passing) lane. Many drivers out there are just inconsiderate a**holes. So as a friendly advice, it is VERY IMPORTANT to pay attention at all times. In addition, you MUST NOT engaged to or AVOID or might as well QUIT) bad habits such as:
- using cellphones while driving
- putting make-up on while driving
- playing music very loud
- eating while driving
- driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- being aggressive on the road
I admit I was guilty with the first and last before. But I overcame them. I love myself and my family as much I love my life.
