C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin.

I just checked every box, but also thought that an all of the above option was needed.

Essentially, keep your eyes where you want to go and don't make any sudden moves, which includes anything that could break traction - brakes, steering, heavy acceleration.

I generally avoid those obstacles even if it means crossing into the other lane if no vehicles are coming towards me, and have a clear view of road ahead.

I selected all the options.
