Thought I would make a quick but hopefully very useful observation on safe driving.
The Golden Rule for safe driving is "Drive slow, the slowest you can". The only exception is a multi-lane highway where there is a minimum speed limit. In all other cases driving slow will always benefit you-will be safer.
Note that if you are driving slow and someone hits you from the back it is ALWAYS there fault (again the exception being the multi-lane highway with a minimum speed limit).
