On The Road

Tips for safe driving

There is a campaign afoot in Los Altos to encourage us to drive the speed limit on city streets. This helps us avoid getting speeding tickets and makes our neighborhoods more pleasant to live in. The Year of the Good Neighbor committee offers the following driving tips:

Concentrate on driving, not on passengers, cellular phones or other distractions.

Stop at stop signs and red lights; don't run yellow lights.

Maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.

Signal several hundred feet before turning or changing lanes.

Watch for signs around town that say, "Be an angel, drive 25." To be on the safe side, remember: "Don't drive faster than your guardian angel can fly."
