Don’t be pressured into speeding

Unfortunately, not everyone always sticks to the right speed. If you find yourself being tailgated by the driver behind, even if you’re driving at the right speed, don’t let yourself be bullied into speeding. Remember your main hazard is what’s in front: you don’t want to speed up to the car in front to crash into them if they brake. If the car behind is following too closely, allow for extra room ahead in case they do go into the back of you, and, if it’s safe, pull over to let the tailgater pass. If you feel pressured by another car, remember the speed is limited for a reason, and don’t let drivers who don’t respect this get you into trouble and affect your score negatively.
