SAFE SPEED

Be prepared for the fact that you may not be able to drive the speed limit, and still be able to recognize hazards, react promptly, and get the vehicle stopped in time.

 

VISUAL SCANNING

Good vision is limited to the areas illuminated by the headlights.

 

SPOTTING DEER

On roads where deer are likely to be present, don’t look for the deer as much as for their eyes.

 

DON’T OVERDRIVE YOUR HEADLIGHTS

The faster you drive, the shorter the distance you can see ahead.

 

CURVES

When you round a curve, headlights shine straight ahead off the road, reducing already limited vision. Reducing speed is the only way to solve the problem.

 

HEADLIGHT GLARE

Glare from other vehicles can be a problem.  Glance off to the right to avoid being blinded by the headlights of oncoming vehicles.
