If I am you I will move to the leftmost lane let the tailgater pass then move back to centre lane. I am amazed that you actually bear with the tailgater from Tampines to Jurong.
if you are cruising @ 80-90km/h, and there is an overtaking lane. just don't care lor...

Just don't speed and don't rush at turns...

When approaching traffic junctions, if there is/are vehicle(s) on the opposite side in position/pocket to make the right turn, and your signals are still green and you know a turn executed could be potentially disastrous, you may tap to flash your high beams to alert him.

Use your signals. Don't make people speculate. Make it obvious with your signal lights.

In fact 90% of accidents is due to drivers not checking blind spots, very hard to turn the head cause it is stuck? Even I check blind spots twice to make sure no jokers try to do some stunts.

Especially to check for motorcyclists, many change lane but never see me beside them

Most important is to stay focused on your surroundings and anticipate other drivers' intentions. So many drivers don't signal or start drifting into your lane unintentionally.

Having smart phones in your view, especially on those stick-on holders is one way to distract you, even if it is not illegal.

Peripheral vision and regular checking of mirrors and blind spots can get you out of an accident which you can avoid, even if you are not directly involved.

Don't drive behind big vehicles as you cannot see beyond.

Try to drive while looking not at the vehicle in front of you only, but the vehicle (s) further in front.

This way, unless the front vehicle wanna delibrately sabo u, you will have more reaction time by looking at the movement of the vehicles further down
