Defensive Driving Tips

    Green does not mean go 

    If you're at the front of the line at a red light and the light turns green you better look before going. A local teenager did not look and she died a few seconds later. 
    Look before you go. Look left, then proceed into the intersection, look right, then proceed across.

    Never be the last car stopped in line 

    When approaching a line of cars stopped at a red light slow down early; you NEVER want to be the last car stopped in a line at a light.  Slow early and coast up to the line. Your goal here is to attract one or more cars close behind you as you approach the light. These cars will act to shield you from that occasional driver coming up too fast from behind.
