Congested Traffic: Strategies for Reducing Risk:
- Drive with your low-beam headlights on at all times. Low-beam headlights make your car more visible to other motorists and pedestrians. According to AAA, a car with low-beam headlights can be seen about 2,200 feet sooner than a car without headlights.
- Scan cross-streets and public and private driveways for cars entering the road. Some drivers will pull into traffic without first ensuring that they have a clear path of travel.
