You need space on both sides of your vehicle to have room to turn or change lanes.

•Avoid driving next to other vehicles on multi-lane roads. Another driver
may crowd your lane or try to change lanes and pull into your lane. Move
ahead or drop behind the other vehicle.
•Keep as much space as you can between your vehicle and oncoming
vehicles. On a two lane road, this means not crowding the center line. In
general, it is safest to drive in the center of your lane.
•Make room for vehicles entering on a roadway that has two or more lanes.
If there is no other vehicle next to you, move over one lane.
•Keep extra space between your vehicle and parked cars. Someone could step
out from a parked vehicle, or from between vehicles, or a parked vehicle
could pull out.
•Give extra space
to pedestrians or
bicycles, especially
children. They can
move into your
path quickly and
without warning.
Do not share a lane
with a pedestrian
or bicyclist. Wait
until it is safe to pass in the adjoining lane.
•“Split the difference rule.” Split the difference between two hazards. For
example, steer a middle course between oncoming and parked vehicles.
However, if one is more dangerous than the other, leave a little more space
on the danger side. In the example, if the oncoming vehicle is a tractor
trailer, leave a little more room on the side that the truck will pass.
•When possible, take potential hazards one at a time. For example, if you
are passing a bicycle and an oncoming vehicle is approaching, slow down
and let the vehicle pass first so that you can give extra room to the bicycle.
