Crowded roadways and aggressive drivers help make rush hour a dangerous time to drive, says the National Safety Council.
To make it safely during rush hour, the NSC recommends:
- Slow down. Do not be an impatient driver.
- Stay in your lane. Beware of drivers that dart from lane to lane.
- Stay alert.
- Consult a map or GPS before going to an unfamiliar area.
- Do not use your phone, or eat or drink while driving.
