We'd all like to think we're good drivers. And, on the surface, we are or else we wouldn't be carrying the driver's permits that we do.
From adhering to speed limits and using turn signals, certain safe driving techniques are common knowledge (though not always followed, regardless); others aren't as well-known, but should be considered by all drivers in order to up the safe factor on the road for all of us. The following is a list of the top 10 driving tips we should all keep in mind the next time we're behind the wheel.

This is huge as winter quickly approaches. As the days get shorter, we can practice safe driving by ensuring other motorists on the road know where we are at all times. While most modern cars are equipped with daytime running lights, older models are not. Ensuring that your lights are turned on during early morning, late evening and nighttime drives is a great way to practice safe driving.
