City Driving

City and urban driving require particular alertness. Traffic congestion combined with limited space on the roadway greatly effect driver performance.

When you're driving in the city, decrease speed to give yourself more time to analyze the traffic ahead and identify possible dangers. Slower speed allows more time to determine situations and select the best driving tactic. Slower speed also increases driver reaction time. Look far ahead in traffic to check for hazards and potential problems. Keep the entire area in mind. Be prepared for the unexpected and leave yourself enough room to safely maneuver. Be prepared to brake when you see brake lights ahead, or when arriving at intersections. Be aware of stalled or parked cars, which could have passengers entering or exiting their vehicle.
