1. Slow down on a highway in heavy traffic. This is not the time to get to your destination in the shortest time. It won’t happen and you may end up in an accident.

2. Stay at least 8.0 km/h within the speed limit, even on a highway. In fact, slow down a bit to allow for those other impatient drivers.

3. Keep extra distance between you and the car in front. Allow for a sudden stop- be prepared to head off the road to the shoulder if necessary.

4. Uses D3 in an automatic transmission.It is normally used for stop and go driving. In a manual transmission, for stop-and-go traffic, you will use both first and second gears.

5. Be extra alert for sudden or unexpected moves by other drivers. Know where your car will end up if someone cuts you off, or forces ahead of you.

6. Find another time to drive if you can, to avoid bad traffic, or carpool to take advantage of any special lanes.

7. Practice patience, because you won’t get to your destination faster by pushing everyone else. You only become more dangerous.

8. Be defensive. Pretend every other driver is not as smart as you, and think how you will save yourself.

9. Limit your commute times in bad traffic if possible, and only do it once a week or so. You’ll have less stress.

10. Exit the freeway if it makes you too nervous. It’s better to stop at the lights and take more time, than sit in traffic and just get angry.
