Health Tip: Drive Safely During Rush Hour

-- 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.
