Rule 1.

Aim high in steering. Imaginary target. Baseball/dartboard. Centers your car in traffic lane. Safe path on turns. Find a safe path well ahead.

Rule 2.

Get the big picture. How wide? How deep? What's in it? Objects and background. Keeps you away from billboards. Smooth stops and turns. Buys time. Stay back and see it all.

Rule 3.

Keep your eyes moving. Move your eyes. Front 2 sec. Rear 5 to 8 sec. Keeps you alive at intersections. Keeps eyes ahead of car. Scan don't stare.

Rule 4.

Leave yourself an out. Have an escape route. Take path of least resistance. Space on all four sides, but always in front.

Rule 5.

Make sure they see you. Communicate in traffic. Horn, lights, signals. Establishes eye to eye contact. Don't gamble, use your horn, lights, and signals.
