You can maintain your speed to see others and get time to avoid something unpredictable. You can leave room behind, to both sides, and ahead while driving at a permissible speed. Since most collisions happen from the front, you can take more caution.

Another consideration is communication. You can communicate with others whenever needed to prevent an accident. Also, you can make eye contact with cyclists, other drivers, and pedestrians at signals and intersections when you want to stop, slow down, or change lanes. You can also use your horn when you want the attention of some person.

Also, you can take defensive actions fast and prevent accidents. Use your signal lights to help other drivers know your moves and drive safely.
