City, Rural and Expressway Driving

Expressway Driving

Highway driving is comparable to city driving. Like city roads, highways, also called expressways, are typically well maintained and jam-packed with traffic. However, the speeds drivers maintain on the highway are usually much faster than the speeds maintained on inner city roads. Because of the high speeds, you must be cautious to keep sufficient space around your vehicle at all times to ensure your safety.

When another driver makes a driving error, you need time to act in response. You can give yourself this time by keeping sufficient space between your vehicle and the vehicles around you. Keep a "space cushion" on all sides of your car. An area of open space surrounding your vehicle is known as a space cushion. It allows you the space needed to brake or maneuver when faced with a perilous driving situation.
