While driving, you should focus your eyes at least _________ ahead.


Good drivers focus their eyes at least 10 to 15 seconds ahead. To determine how far a ten-second interval for a certain speed is, select a marker such as a sign, bridge, or tree, and count “one-thousand one, one-thousand two...” When you have counted "one-thousand ten," you have driven for 10 seconds. Ten seconds may not seem like much, but bear in mind that at 60 mph, your vehicle will travel 880 feet in 10 seconds and 1,320 feet in 15 seconds.
