In the wake of last week's series on www.injury-lawyer-florida.com about the hazards of aggressive driving, speeding and distracted and drowsy driving, Florida Injury Lawyers has found a comprehensive Internet resource to provide drivers with a refresher course of safe driving tips.
For most of us, driving has become a commonplace activity. Yet it is the only potentially deadly activity most of us engage in on a daily basis. Having written about what not to do, here is a look at 70 safe driving tips we could all benefit from reviewing.
As RoadTrip America put it in debuting its 70 Rules of Defensive Driving: "It's not something we ... like to dwell upon but about 50,000 people die each year in collisions on the roadways of the United States."
