Avoid blind spots

Don’t linger in areas where the driver in front of you can’t see you. Be aware that many motorists will only check their mirrors before making a lane change. If you’re lurking slightly behind and a lane away from another vehicle, assume that the driver of that car can’t see you. Either safely speed up or slow down to avoid this scenario as it could result in an incident. This is an important defensive driving technique.
