The most common mistake that drivers make when backing up is failing to look both ways behind them. Mirrors do not give you a full view. To see as much as possible, turn your body and head to the right and look through the rear window.

2. What does alcohol do to your driving skills and judgement?

Alcohol negatively affects many skills needed for safe driving, including your reaction time and ability to see clearly. It can also harm your judgment of speed and distance, lower your inhibitions, and make you more prone to taking chances.

Explanation
Before changing lanes, you should activate your turn signal in the appropriate direction and check your rearview and side mirrors.

Change lanes when you are sure it is safe to do so.
