Drive sensibly, but don't dawdle. Leave your self plenty of room in front, but not so much that every one pulls out of side streets on you. Don't drive into closing gaps, and make sure if you are driving into a constricted space you have room to escape to if needed. On your test especially - make th...

How a person is online , in a highly verbal environment , may not be a good guide to how they do offline . I can be exactly like that. No. I am exactly like that.
