The basic rules of the road are.

Always stop behind school buses with red flashing lights.
Always yield to any and all pedestrians.
Always maintain a safe following distance.
Always signal before changing lanes or turning.
Always observe your surroundings even when reversing.
And remember that slow traffic keeps right.

The first rules of the road is to focus on your driving and avoid distractions.

The same applies when riding a bicycle or motorcycle you should always focus on your riding and driving and pay attention to your surroundings.

Also follow all traffic laws, stop at stop lights, stop signs yield for pedestrians etc.

The most effective way for you and others to stay as safe as possible on the road is to respect traffic laws and other drivers.

Traffic lights and speed limits exist for a reason, and lanes are there to keep cars from colliding with one another.

The 4 rules to remember when driving are.

Rule #1: First to arrive, first to drive. If you arrive at the intersection first, come to a complete stop, then proceed.
Rule #2: Right of way goes to the right.
Rule #3: Straight doesn't have to wait.
Rule #4: Left turn yields to right.

There is one rule that the Department of Motor Vehicles recommends all motorists do to avoid collisions with such objects.

It advises that drivers should scan the road at least 12 seconds ahead to avoid potential trouble spots and to identify possible road hazards.

Some other safety rules of the road when driving are.

    Always wear a seatbelt.
    Avoid distractions.
    Do not cross the speed limits.
    Service your car regularly.
    Follow traffic signals.
    Maintain lane discipline.
    Be careful during bad weather.
    Maintain a safe distance.

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Explanation The golden rule of driving is to treat other drivers the way you want to be treated. Obey traffic laws, drive responsibly, and avoid taking unnecessary risks that may put you and others in danger.

Drivers must always yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, even if they cross the road illegally, such as failing to use a marked crosswalk.

Pedestrians are required to yield to vehicles that have a green light at an intersection.

Pedestrians who are blind always have the right-of-way.

When two vehicles get to the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right goes first; it has the right-of-way.

If neither the base rule or furthest right rule apply: Straight Traffic Goes First.

Some ways to be a good driver of the road include.
