Increase your chances for a safer trip home by practicing defensive driving. Defensive driving means watching out for hazardous situations ahead of time. Keeping your distance from other cars and your eyes moving at all times allows you to have control of the road. It is also wise to avoid using your smartphone and to focus entirely on the road. Being alert and conscious gives you more command of the wheel.
