JIM & JEFF LUFF DRIVING TIP: [Note: This is the third in a series of weekly driving tips from LCT contributing editor and operator Jim Luff and his son, Jeff Luff, who works for Jim's limousine company in Bakersfield, Calif.]:

Always Move Your Eyes: Make it a habit to move your eyes every two-seconds, and check your mirrors every five to eight-seconds. Do not let your eyes become fixated on any one object for more than two-seconds - this causes you to enter a blank stare. When moving your eyes every two-seconds, continue focusing on the three-zones ahead of you for potential hazards, glance at your instrument panel and gauges, as well as your mirrors. Do not let your eyes become fixated on anything! Constantly look side-to-side, and front-to-back. Make it a habit to look into your rear view mirror EVERY time your foot touches the brake - braking = checking your rear view mirror!
