Commuter Safety Tips
During morning and afternoon commutes to and from work, drivers are typically have many other things on their minds besides traffic laws and safe driving practices. The roads are crowded and require attention, but drivers are often tired and turn to multitasking in the car, such as eating breakfast, drinking coffee, putting on makeup or chatting on a cell phone.
Commuting during rush hour can be difficult, so it is important to drive safely and responsibly to keep yourself and others out of an accident. However, you cannot control the actions of other drivers. If you or a loved one has been involved in accident because of another negligent driver during your commute, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

- Be aware of other cars at all times
- Do not frequently weave in and out of lanes
- Do not tailgate, leaving plenty of room between you and the car in front of you
- Do not eat or perform other distracting tasks while driving
- Give yourself plenty of time to get to work to avoid stressful situations and road rage
