...look well forward of your vehicle while driving. Look as far ahead as you can see while scanning. That way things don't sneak up on you.
That's great advice! Sometimes we all become distracted and narrow our focus on the road immediately ahead when danger could be just a few car lengths in front of you. Another piece of advice is please don't tailgate! The way my Mother used to put it was "imagine that the vehicle in front of you suddenly becomes a brick wall! You should always allow enough space so that if that were to happen, you'd have time to stop before hitting it!" Isn't it great to have over 10,000 uncles all throwing advice at you when you're all excited about getting your permit?
