Every day, thousands of people use their cars to drive to work or school, to run errands, or visit friends and family. Whether you use your car every day or just occasionally, it is important to know the rules of the road and that you practice safe driving. Drivers are also reminded to share the road with pedestrians and bicyclists as well. Remember to turn on vehicle headlights at dusk and be vigilant in looking out for cyclists and pedestrians.
