DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL
Driving under the influence of alcohol is a very dangerous move to make as a driver.  Drunk drivers are the major cause of road traffic accident today.  Driving under the influence of alcohol impairs your driving ability and your responsiveness to suspected dangers.
DRIVING TIRED
If you had a stressful day and you are feeling tired, it is not advisable to drive. Sometimes when you drive while tired, there are chances that you will fall asleep behind the wheels. This phenomenon could cause accidents. So if you are tired, its best you pullover and catch some rest before you continue with your journey.
OVER SPEEDING
Sometimes we overspeed on the basis that we are in a hurry to get to our destination. Overspeeding is the second major reason for road accidents. Overspeeding makes it difficult for the driver to dodge possible error either from the other driver or another vehicle. The impact of a crash is more when a driver is over speeding than when driving at moderate speed.
NEGLECTING TRAFFIC SIGNS
The traffic signs at different routes were put in place as a guide for drivers to ensure safe driving. 
Neglecting those traffic signs could cause an accident especially if its your first time of driving through that route. Also, your chances of colliding with incoming vehicles at junctions and sharp bends is high if you over look traffic signs.
DISTRACTED DRIVING
Doing some other things like answering of phone calls, baby sitting while driving could be dangerous for a driver. A distracted driver may not be able to sight any possible danger on time.
NOT WEARING A SEAT BELT
Most drivers do not wear seat belt while driving because they feel it’s discomforting. Some others wear it just to avoid being penalized by traffic wardens. However, they fail to understand that wearing a seat belt is one of the major safety tips for driving. The impact of an accident is minimized if your seat belt is on.
