Driving competently and safely on Brentwood’s roads means internalizing key habits. Follow these tips to become a confident and responsible driver in the borough.

Practice Road Etiquette
Use signals properly, don’t hog lanes, and allow others to merge. Be considerate of other road users and pedestrians. Verbally point out hazards to passengers to avoid distractions. Wave apologies for mistakes. Building good driving etiquette makes roads safer.

Drive with Patience and Respect
Keep composure even when others make errors. Don’t react with hostility or attempt to “teach someone a lesson.” Stay calm, tolerant and focused on your own driving. A respectful, patient attitude prevents reckless behavior.

Know When to Yield Right of Way
Understand right-of-way laws. Yield to pedestrians at crossings and junctions. Allow emergency vehicles, buses and lorries space to maneuver. Stop for school buses with flashing lights. Following right-of-way rules helps traffic flow smoothly.

Make Safety Your Priority
The greatest responsibility is protecting lives. Avoid distractions and give driving your full attention. Follow speed limits, traffic signs, and signals without fail. Scan surroundings and anticipate hazards. Make safety the basis of every decision.

Build Confidence Over Time
Don’t rush into situations beyond your skill level, like highways or night driving. Gain experience on quieter roads first. Comfort and confidence will grow with time and practice. Consider advanced driving courses to sharpen skills further.

When you commit to driving with confidence, patience and responsibility, Brentwood’s roads become easier to navigate safely. Consistently applying etiquette, care and focus makes you a conscientious member of the borough’s driving community.
