A Space Cushion To The Side
Keeping a good space cushion to the
side avoids collisions with traffic traveling beside or
towards you in adjacent lanes. Keep as much space as you
can between yourself and oncoming traffic. If you are traveling
on a multilane roadway such as a freeway, stay out of the
center lane to give you more room to avoid a collision with
a passing car or one that drifts over the centerline.
