    my driving instructor taught us that when more than one car is involved in a crash, it is because _usually_ because more than one driver made a mistake — the first one did something wrong or unpredictable, the other driver(s) failed to allow the other driver enough space to recover from what might have been only a slight error.

    In other words, we ought to drive in such a way that minor transgressions by other drivers (or by ourselves) don’t become collisions, and we ought to allow other drivers forgiveness in our attitude so that our behaviour is calm and predictable.

    I sometimes find that I still need to remind myself of these lessons, but I have found this lesson has been helpful in keeping me out of tight places whilst driving.

    Thanks for good explanation about the “defensive driving”, but i would say instead of keeping away from other drivers we can call it as maintaining the safe distance between vehicles, so that one can have a room to handle the unexpected situation raised by other driver.

    Another way of describing defensive driving: “be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others.”
