With that being said, below....are some vital safety tips for Keeping Right, On The Road. Who knows, it could save you from becoming Rusty's, next...victim.
"Keep your eyes on the road" - I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)
A group of high school seniors are driving on the road after a night of partying. All is well until one of them spills alcohol on the driver Ray, causing him to become distracted and hit a pedestrian in the road. When they decide to dump the body in the nearby lake, their nightmare begins. The man they left for dead is a murdering psychopath, who comes back for revenge on the group.
"Don't rubber-neck" - Jeepers Creepers (2001)
Being distracted while driving is one thing - completely turning your attention to something on the side, or completely off the road, is another. While "rubber-necking" typically leads to irritatingly slow traffic, the results are much more terrifying in the case of Darry and Trish Jenner in Jeepers Creepers. While on a trip across the country, Darry notices a man dumping bodies down a drain on the side of the road. He and his sister choose to investigate, which leads to them being hunted by a flesh-eating creature looking to turn them into it's next snack.
"Don't pick-up hitchhikers" - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
You can't blame the kids from this 70's horror classic for wanting to be good samaritans and help a man in need of a ride. What you can blame them for is being idiots and pulling out a knife in front of someone who looks as crazy as the hitchhiker they decided to pick up. The situation gets especially scary when the hitchhiker takes the knife and cuts himself, before proceeding to attack his fellow passengers in the van.
"Stick to the roads on the map" - The Hills Have Eyes (1977 & 2006)
It isn't wise to make fun of someone and then ask them for help. This is especially true when you're dealing with a pissed off, deranged gas station operator in a remote part of the country. The Carter Family finds this out the hard way, as they are given directions that take them down a road where they come face to face with the violent, mutated savages that reside in the desert hills.
"Keep up with your car" - Wolf Creek (2005)
In both horror movies, and real-life, cars seem to breakdown at the most inopportune of times. Such is the case for three backpackers in Australia, who are taken hostage by a murderous bushman who offered to fix their broken down vehicle. Had they followed this rule, they never would've been in the precarious situation to begin with.
