Defensive Drive Tips

Here's two tips from State Troopers. I'm sure there are other's out there.

Interstate Travel

Do not travel along side a truck or immediately behind one. Very dangerous place to be if it loses a tire thread.

This one really makes you think. Apparently the problem of drunks driving home without theie lights on is common. If they get on the interstate going the wrong way and keep right thinking they are in the slow lane it's even more of a problems as they are in fact heading the wrong way in the high speed lane. This trooper never travels in the high speed lane at high unless there are tail lights ahead. Might not be a bad idea in general. Things break down and are left in the lanes rather regularly.
