Mul­ti­task­ing while driv­ing. Be­ing dis­tracted while driv­ing: think­ing about chores, men, school runs, the shop­ping list...

Not im­prov­ing our par­al­lel­park­ing skills. We’d rather park in a big open space far from our des­ti­na­tion than edge into that par­al­lel­park­ing spot right out­side.

Press­ing too hard on the ac­cel­er­a­tor.The more smoothly you brake and ac­cel­er­ate, the fur­ther your fuel will go.

Feel­ing over­con­fi­dent. It’s not only men who can be cocky driv­ers – and that at­ti­tude can lead to care­less­ness or an ac­ci­dent.

Driv­ing while drowsy or when you’re very up­set. The prin­ci­ple is clear: your full at­ten­tion must be on the road while driv­ing.
