Freeways in the Maryland and DC area are very busy, which increases both the rate of car accidents and the damage that is likely to occur in the event of an accident. To make sure that you are driving safely on the freeway, always wear your seatbelt. Before driving on the freeway, ensure that the rear-view mirror and side mirrors are properly adjusted. During freeway driving, be aware of the car in front of you and behind you, as well as the cars to both sides of you. Always keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you so that you have sufficient time to stop. Do not talk on your cell phone on the freeway unless you are using a hands-free unit.
In addition to the above-mentioned driving tips, regular auto maintenance is an essential component of safe freeway driving.
