If you're driving a new or unfamiliar vehicle, get to know where the safety controls are before you set off. Check the location of the headlight switch, windshield wipers, front defroster, and emergency hazard lights. You should also know your hand signals (right, left and stop), in case you find the car's signals do not operate properly.
