There are many precautions you can take to stay safe while driving. From following the posted speed limit to always wearing your seatbelt, you should prioritize your safety every time that you get behind the wheel.
Your well-being does not rest solely in your own hands, though. When you share the road with other drivers, you are also at the mercy of how other people choose to behave and drive. While you might treat driving like the serious task that it is, others are far more careless when they are in charge of a motor vehicle. This is where infrastructure becomes crucially important.
