Help drivers avoid common mistakes and operate safely when they find themselves in unfamiliar areas.

Tip #1: Review Maps and Plan Your Route Before Driving.
Be sure to plan your driving route before getting behind the wheel so you can keep your schedule and prevent distractions that may occur while trying to read a map or directions.

Tip #2: Do Not Suddenly Change Your Direction of Travel.
If you miss a turn or an exit, pass the turn and find a safe way to change direction. Do not take shortcuts. Trying to suddenly correct a missed turn or exit may result in you performing an illegal or unsafe maneuver which may threaten your safety and the safety of the vehicles around you.

Tip #3: Signal Your Turns.
Use turn signals first to indicate your intent to change lanes, next visually scan for adjacent traffic and road hazards, and then execute a safe lane change.
