There are plenty of ways we can all become more considerate to other drivers and pedestrians by paying attention to what's happening around us.
When a Turn Lane Is Backed Up
You need to move into the left turn lane, and it's a little backed up. You notice a few more drivers pull in behind you, and soon the line starts to bleed into the main road. Make sure you've carefully pulled up to the car in front of you as much as possible so the cars behind you have a chance to get out of the road and further into the turn lane. Every foot helps.
When Driving In the Fast Lane
The fast lane is designated for passing, not coasting. If you're moving at a comfortable speed and the other lanes are clear, move over and use those lanes. This is especially true if you notice a car behind you quickly approaching and expecting you to move out of their way.
When Pedestrians Are Crossing At a Right Turn
Be careful not to breeze through a crosswalk when turning right. The WALK sign might be on but not visible to you, and pedestrians ready to cross may not be paying attention to cars. So do your part and be cautious of pedestrians.
