How to Drive in Washington


  1. When making a right turn, it is not necessary to stop at a red light or stop sign. This is known as the "free right".

  2. High beams help you see better, so it is best to leave them on at all times.

  3. When talking on the phone, always drive in the middle, or “cell phone”, lane.

  4. Turn signals give away valuable tactical information to your enemies. Avoid using them at all costs.

  5. Whenever you need to merge, follow the vehicle in front of you as closely as possible to prevent someone in the other lane getting between you and slowing you down.

  6. Even if you are not passing another vehicle, if you think you might pass another vehicle at some point in the future, you should stay in the left-most, or "fast", lane.

  7. If the vehicle in front of you slows suddenly, swerve immediately onto the shoulder. This will impress the other drivers.

  8. At a four-way stop, the vehicle that slows the least has the right of way.
