What is the single most important aspect of driving?
I know that being a successful, safe, and good driver is important. But if an expert driver or person could pare it down to just one thing, what is the single most important aspect of driving?
“If you ask 10 people what the most important aspect of driving is, you’ll probably get 10 different answers. And while defensive driving is perhaps the best response, most experts would say attitude is the most important.
Your attitude dictates how well or how safe you’ll drive behind the wheel. If you have a good attitude and a clear mind, you’re much less likely to drive erratically or put yourself in high-risk situations.
Safe driving and the right attitude means you’re protecting others and yourself. A good way to make ensure you’re looking out for other drivers and yourself is to make check that you have the best coverage.

Is Carvana a good lender to work with?
I test drove a certified pre-owned vehicle at a car dealership and loved it. I found the same vehicle on Carvana for $2,000 less, so I'm thinking of pulling the trigger. The only problem is that Carvana has a much higher interest rate than the dealership. Is Carvana a good dealer to work with? Or should I look elsewhere?

What should you avoid when teaching someone how to drive?
I'm teaching my oldest child how to drive, as she just got her learner's permit. The only problem is that I've never taught anyone to drive. I have a basic idea of how to do it based on my own experiences, but what should I avoid telling her when I'm teaching her how to drive?
