2. Always use turn signal to alert motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
3. Use side mirrors, to watch the actions of other drivers and pedestrians.
Drive within approved speed limits.
4. Child safety-locks and drivers power-window locks should be employed, to prevent children from suddenly opening doors and windows from inside moving vehicles.
5. Never use cell phones, in order to allow for adequate concentration while driving, and
