Safety Tips

Always be aware of your surroundings. Don’t be distracted while stopped. Don’t get caught off guard. Always be paying attention!

Always “leave yourself an out” when driving. Don’t stop too close to the vehicle in front of you. Always leave enough space in between vehicles so that you can quickly turn out and drive away if necessary.
