Look Far Ahead: Make it a habit to always look far ahead on the road while driving i.e. 12-15 seconds in city (around one block), and 20-30 seconds on freeway (around 1 K.M). It will keep you aware of any potential hazards and you will have enough time to avoid the crash. It also helps in keeping your car in middle of your lane.

Keep Your Eyes Moving: Beware of the fixed stare - if you are looking at something for longer than 2 seconds, you are staring. Therefore, keep scanning for dangers by keeping your peripheral vision open. Also, as a general rule you should check your rear view mirror every 5-8 seconds.

Keep yourself an out: Always leave some space around your vehicle so that you can quickly get out in case there is a danger. You can do this by maintaining your speed and lane position in advance.

Get the big picture: Always keep observing traffic around you so that you can quickly make a decision to avoid any possible danger.

Make sure you are seen: Never assume that other drivers have seen you. If necessary, make use of signlas or horn to alert others of your next move.
