This week's safety tip comes from the manual "What Every Driver Must Know," published by the state of Michigan.
When driving past parked vehicles, watch for vehicles that may pull out in front of you.
Look for clues: a person in the driver's seat, exhaust coming from a tailpipe, illuminated brake lights, a flashing turn signal, illuminated backup lights, or at parallel parking areas, a vehicle's front wheels turning out. Watch for a vehicle door being opened in front of you. Also, watch for pedestrians or bicyclists trying to cross the road between parked vehicles.
