  1. Everyone? Slow down! Please. :) Oh, and I follow you on Twitter too.

    • kimmy

      Safety comes first! Think of others.

    • Yvonne

      Keep Space

      Over 90% of all collisions are caused by driver error. In order to stay out of collisions you need to keep space around your vehicle at all times. Keep a space cushion in front, behind and on both sides in order to always have an escape route open and be prepared to use it.

  2. gayle bellemare

    Always be aware of other drivers, traffic lights, pedestrians and any hazards. Keep your eyes moving, checking your blind spot often. If you are aware of what is around you at all times, you will then make informed decisions with regards to your driving and all those around you will be safer for it.

  3. Jessica

    take your time & be alert

  4. Debbie

    Slow down and always where your seat belt!

  5. Marissa

    Maintain a minimum following distance so you will have an escape route in case of an emergency! :)

  6. Sherri R.

    Don’t rely on others to be the better driver. Take ownership and responsibilty for your own safety and for those around you.

  7. To make sure I follow all road signs and rules and drive defensively even if someone else isn’t and make sure I keep myself and the people around me safe.

    Always make sure that your vehicle is cleared of snow and frost before driving.

  17. Sheri

    People need to stop trailing so close behind each other! Too many drivers like to ride close to the bumper…its unnecessary and recipe for disaster! Especially in slippery conditions!

  18. Mason Butler

    Always be aware of the people around you and what they are doing. Make sure your vehicle is properly equipped for the conditions, and drive for the conditions especially. Be aware of your stopping distance, it increases in the snowy icy road conditions.

    If the conditions are just that bad and you can drive another day, stay inside instead of driving and risking your life or the lives of other people in bad driving conditions.

    My tip for any young driver is understanding commentary drive and being aware of steering high and seeing what is in front of you to enable you to see what you are approaching and what potential hazards there are. Also understanding the 2 second rule of point of no return when approaching a traffice light. When you are 2 seconds from the intersection, regardless if the light changes to yellow, you should make the conscious decision to proceed as you are now at the polint of no return. To stop now at 2 seconds from interesection you are creating a potential for the car behind you to hit you.

  25. Elaine Jasvins

    It is very important to use your mirrors and check them often. Be a defensive driver.

    Winter driving can be dangerous. Give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. Keep all your fluids topped up and your tires weather worthy.

    To be a good driver you must first know how to be a pedestrian and get the scoop. When you know how you’ll understand better and tolerate a lot more patience and more!

  72. Alex Martel

    While driving , be sure to always be comfortable with your vehicule. I have made a circuit full obstacles to know what the capabilities of my vehicule are as in total width , steering at a wide variety of speeds and how to control drifts when lost control. Read your owners manual to find out what safety features your car is equipped with and how to use them.

  73. Anand

    Ensure your car is prepared for Winter driving conditions; a good set of winter tires, snow brush and scraper, lots of washer fluid and always ensure your car is clear of snow and frost prior to driving!

  85. Jon

  86. Dan & Bev Hess

    to read the sign,
    Slow down & Be smart

  87. David

    It can be difficult to see around a large SUV, when making a left turn at a traffic light, because the view of on-coming traffic behind the SUV may be obscured. On rainy nights, in this situation, I look for the reflection of any approaching vehicle’s headlights, off the wet road, under the SUV. Not seeing the reflection doesn’t mean that this isn’t an oncoming vehicle, but seeing the reflection means that there is something I need to be aware of.

  88. Barbara Simpson

    Always do a shoulder check before changing lanes.

  89. Jaired

    Always make sure that you are alert by making sure you are not tired and never drinking and driving.

  90. Jade

    Don’t drink and drive, and drive safely .

  91. Jolie

    My Favorite tip from YD: A yellow light does not mean proceed with caution; it means STOP unless unsafe to do so!!! My non-YD trained friends do not know this

    • LR

      I disagree! I think you need another YD lesson. Yellow light does NOT mean to stop, it means PREPARE TO STOP. It also means you should NOT speed up through it.

  92. Chantel

    When driving, always stay calm and relaxed and don’t stress. Also, never run a yellow light unless you cannot stop safely, and you can NEVER shoulder check too much!

  93. Elspeth

    Always check left center rights and keep your eyes looking well ahead!

  94. Karen

    Don’t drink and drive!!!

  95. Mina Cantone

    Turn the power off on youuur cell phone before you start the car.

  96. Sheighla Barr

    Look at where you want your car to be (i.e. in the middle of the lane) and don’t focus too much on the other lanes/cars coming towards you. This will help keep you driving in the middle of your lane.

  97. Valerie

    Look ahead 2-3 cars to see what is happening, anticipate slow downs and pedestrians and avoid rear ending someone. When it is raining, look under the car in front of you and you can see brakelights go on in the traffic ahead and reflected in the rain

  100. Lily Ann Peters

    When turning use the hand over hand technique because it allows you to make a smooth and safe turn especially when approaching intersections and when having to make that tricky left turn.

  101. Judy Raske

    Make you stay alert to other drivers and pedestrians, stay off your phone’s and be cautious when the road conditions deteriorate! Never let yourself get distracted and drive on auto-pilot!

  102. Leanne Raske

    Followed on twitter! @leanne_14315

  103. Shannon

    You shoulder check when you change lanes or turn a corner, but do you remember to shoulder check when turning out of a parking lot? I see a lot of motorists turn out of parking lots without looking for pedestrians crossing at the corner. Safe driving applies to parking lots too!!

  104. Victor

    Make sure you look at your side mirror before exiting the car! Incoming pedestrians or cyclists can be tricky to spot.

  105. Lilian

    My tip: slow down and anticipate hazards/drive defensively :)

  106. Matthew Weeks

    Try installing convex mirrors on your sideview mirrors. They’re cheap and available just about anywhere.

  107. Lucy Davidson

    Drive as you would expect to be driven.

  108. Elyse

    From completely young drivers this past summer, I’ve learned caution is key! (this is my first winter driving!) if you’ve double checked something, triple check it and “keeping it slow” is key.

  109. Slow down on right turns and check your blind spots :)
    And I liked you on Facebook :)

  110. Rachel

    Always always ALWAYS check your blind spot when changing lanes!!

  111. Lindsay Kingston

    Make sure all mirrors, steering wheel and seat are adjusted correctly. There nothing worse than trying to be a good driver while uncomfortable or unable to see out of the mirrors. Take your time getting situated before driving.

  112. Paula Anderson

    New drivers to take the defensive driver training

  113. Mr. Robertson

    Never assume people will stop at a stop sign! Be sure to come to a complete stop, and look around before you proceed. (ESPECIALLY in the winter when roads are slick.)

  114. Kevin

    It doesn’t matter if you “know” there’s something behind you or not. ALWAYS check your blind spot! You will never know how many times there is actually something coming up from behind!

  115. Naomi Lawson-Baird

    As well as doing a pre-trip Vehicle check, do a pre-trip Personal check to make sure you are in the right condition to drive. Preventing: road-rage, intoxicated driving, and any other distractions that might cause collisions.

    Only enter the intersection if you know that you can proceed straight through it without stopping.

  118. Nick Carefoot

    Look where you want to go, if its on a long stretch of road the horizon of the road will guide you to where you want to go. Check your mirrors and don’t derp just drive.

  119. L. Heather Steeves

    Do not be afraid to tell passengers in your car to quiet down because you need to concentrate. It’s your licence on the line and all their lives.

  122. Wil Schmor

    My driving tip is to keep both hands on the steering wheel and eyes on the road. I follow on Facebook (Wil Schmor), twitter (theschmor), and tweet we’d and did a Facebook status

  123. Nicole

    Drive with the assumption that no one else on the road knows what they are doing!

  124. Kim S

    Always leave a couple car lenghts between you and the car ahead of you. Then you have room to stop, should they brake suddenly.
    I’ve also liked the FB page, and followed the Pinterest page :)

  125. Carrie

  129. Tara Smith

    Slow down if you’re being tail-gated – they will not have the reaction time to stop if you do, so you’ll need to factor that in if you have to make an emergency stop for any reason.

  130. Becky

    Always look both ways while waiting at a light, you never know when someone might pop out of nowhere.

    In 2013 to make our roads safer you should avoid driving in unsafe weather conditions especially in the winter months and wait till the weather improves before you go out on the road. Also make sure your car is ready for the conditions you’ll be driving in and drive safe.

  143. Joy

    Slow down!! when you change lane, please check your blind spots and pay attention to your speed.

  144. plan ur trip before leaving be aware of weather conditions and traffic try to prepare for succsess on the road :)

  145. Nick

    Always plan your route before leaving for your destination, instead of doing so while driving. This allows you to remain focused and alert to present driving conditions and remain confident in your abilities. I find it helpful when planning a route to imagine my destination and then work backwards toward my origin.

  153. intensev5

    Always wear your seatbelt – it can save your life!!!

  154. Mark

    Check your mirrors before stopping or slowing down so that you know what is behind you. This will decrease the chances of a nasty rear-end collision. This is especially applicable when the weather conditions are snowy/icy – if someone’s tailgating you and you forget to glance at your mirror before reducing speed or stopping… crash and smash.

  155. Esther

    Keep your eyes on the road.

  156. Jasper Maxwell

    A damn useful trick for driving in snow is to put your vehicle into a lower gear. The wheels will turn slower and have more traction so you won’t bottom out when trying to do a do a multi-point turn or whathaveyou in deepish snow. This works for backing out of a garage and turning to face out of a driveway as well, going up hills and pretty much every other type of snowy terrain is made safer by this.

  157. Jessica

    When driving in the city and an intersection (lights) are down and a cop is directing traffic always follow the cops nstruction over the normal rules of the road. Also if it is the same scenario only without the cop, treat the intersection like a four way stop!

  158. Jenilee

    always watch for other drivers, traffic lights, pedestrians and any hazards. be thinking ahead with speed/weather conditions.

  159. Yvonne

    When driving down Memorial Ave. between the bypass and Colburne St. expect someone to pull out in front of you, because it will happen!

  160. cathy

    Give yourself more time and space in winter driving

  161. Susanne

    When you are waiting at an intersection and the light turns green, wait and make sure the traffic has stopped in both directions, BEFORE you go forward and enter the intersection. By doing this I have saved myself from a fatal accident many times because people have run the red light because they have been on their cell phone or various other reasons.

  162. Damian

    Allways signal and sholder check before you start to move because you will never have seen that car in your blind spot before you hit him/ her. I will also like you on facebook right after im finished with this.

  163. Nichole

    Look right, look left, and look right again! (As a lifelong pedestrian I can’t tell you the number of times i’ve nearly been hit by drivers trying to make a right at a red light simply because they didn’t look!)

    Also – Put your cell phone away!!! – Keep your eyes on the road!!

  164. Driving tip: At night make sure your head lights are not visible in the rear window of the vehicle in front of you

  165. marcia chafe

    It’s not a raec-please be careful!

  166. Mallory

    Be aware of cyclists, as a cyclist I get cars swerving on front of me all the time. And yes, lots of cyclists are unsafe but as a smart cyclist cars should be respectful.

  167. Maxine Hayden

    Never go faster than you feel comfortable. Snow means slow!!
    If someone is tail-gating you and there is a safe place to pull over, then pull over and let them pass you.
    You are the boss of your vehicle when you’re behind the wheel, don’t drive until everyone has their seat-belt on and stop the car (safely) if they’re making too much noise or goofing around.

  168. Sandra

    Whenever you make a right hand turn always look over your shoulder and check your blindspot.

  169. Lynann

    If it’s smaller than a table, It’s a squishy!! Hit it, dont put yourself or others in harms way.

  170. Victoria

    Proper vehicle maintenance is just as important to safe driving as the actions you take on the road. Do a simple circle check around the car to look for any fluid leaks, any obvious damage to the vehicle. Check tire pressure regularly, especially in winter. Have a tire gauge in the glove box. Driving with properly inflated tires is better for fuel economy as well as safety. Make sure all snow and ice has been removed from the car as well. Check engine oil level regularly (every time you fill up) and especially in winter, check windshield wiper fluid level, and coolant level. Have the car regularly serviced, and don’t ignore the warning lights in the dashboard! Also check lights regularly, and turn on your lights when it’s dark, rainy, snowy or foggy to increase visibility, especially in winter driving.

  171. Alyssa

    Always wear your seat belt and never text/talk on your cell phone while driving.

  179. Gord

    Most accidents are avoidable. Make it a point to consider what the other person is thinking in the other vehicle, whether at an intersection, passing, etc. With this in mind, and in many cases, another driver’s actions are predictable. Then, instinctivley, always be thinking about what the other driver ‘might’ do and what you will do in response.
    Take this into account and I guarantee that you will avoid several mishaps in your driving lifetime.

  180. Andrea Morrison

    Something I would recommend for a safer driving experience in 2013 is NOT drinking and driving. This accounts for many accidents and deaths worldwide. It is unsafe, irresponsible and causes danger to yourself and other innocent individuals. I would also suggest that before going through an intersection after the light turns green, I would suggest waiting about 4 seconds to make sure that everyone coming in the opposite direction is stopped completely. You never know when a drunk driver or someone who is texting on their phone will not be paying attention.

  181. Heather

    get snow tires, they really make a difference

  182. Golda

    Plan ahead and give yourself enough time to get to your destination! I’m constantly seeing people on the roads weaving in and out of traffic and speeding because they’re in a big rush. Risk your life to save a loved one in trouble, not to catch the 1:30 showing of some lame movie…

    Get rid of distractions such as phones, make-up, fiddling with the radio. Follow at a safe distance. Follow the speed limit. Check your mirrors often. Watch for pedestrians. Make sure the way is clear before changing lanes, turning, or proceeding through a traffic light. Most importantly– BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS!

  191. Everyone just take your time and drive according to the road conditions. No one wants to get hurt or worse trying to get where they need or want to go.

    Even if you think you’re a good driver so you can drive fast, because “you can handle it” you never know how well or what conditions other drivers are driving in. It’s not just about who is right and wrong… It’s uktimately about who is safe.

    Please brush ALL the snow off your vehicle, including the snow on top that tends to blow off onto the vehicles behind you.

    Distracted driving is a big issue that I think if was solved would make the roads safer in 2013. So if people would not use there iPods, cell phones or other electronic devices I believe we would not be so distracted.

    slow down when there is snow and ice on the road in winter!!

    During unfavorable weather conditions reduce your speed…yes… but too drastically. Driving way too slow can cause an accident as much as driving too fast can. Slow and Steady …. not backwards ;-)

    Keep focused on driving and don’t drink and drive.

    Use winter tires, and plan ahead so you can drive slower and with more caution! :)

    stay alert, slow down and stay in control!

  202. Winter tip: always scrape the ice, snow, sleet, freezing rain, etc. off your windows before you drive and wait until all the fog clears before driving!
