III. Sharing the road
10 ways you can help make Ontario's roads the safest in North America
  1. Don't drink and drive. Don't drive when you're taking medication that will affect your driving
  2. Always wear your seat belt
  3. Obey the speed limits. Slow down when road and weather conditions are poor
  4. Don't take risks: don't cut people off in traffic, make sudden lane changes or run yellow lights
  5. Don't drive when you're tired, upset or sick
  6. If you're in doubt, let the other driver go first — yield the right-of-way
  7. Keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the one ahead
  8. Avoid distractions such as loud music and cell phones
  9. Check your mirrors frequently; always check your blind spot before you change lanes
  10. Check traffic in all directions before going into an intersection
