Do's and Dont's of driving
Because I'm tired from college classes and feel like four weeks have passed since I last posted (really just five days).
DO use your blinker. It's there for a reason, why not use it?
DON'T tailgate, or get way too close to the person in front of you. It's not safe, and should the driver in front of you suddenly stop, that's just an accident waiting to happen.
DO be aware of your surroundings. I know those flowers on the side of the road are gorgeous, but for the sake of those in the car and on the road with you, please pay attention.
DON'T lock your keys in the car. Especially while it's still running and the spare is on the same keychain.
DO make sure your headlights are turned off once you get out of the car. Because waking up to a dead battery is not everyone's favorite thing to do.
DON'T get the gas and brake pedals mixed up. Nobody likes having to redo their garage door.
DO go the speed limit. Nobody likes it when the person in front of them drives ten below.
DON'T go more than five mph over or under the limit. Unless you're driving around lots of hills and/or curves, because then it's basically just try to not make the driver behind/in front of you mad.
DO keep enough cash with you to buy gas. Those fumes aren't going to last forever.
DON'T let a tailgater make you go faster than five over the limit. They can figure out a way around you if they are truly that desperate.
DO keep a roadmap in the car. You never know if you're going to need it, especially if your phone dies or has poor signal.
