Auto-Organization

At first, being well-organized may not sound like an actual component of defensive driving. It can actually be pretty important, as it will help you avoid common driving mistakes. Here are some examples.

Know where your keys are
If you need 15 minutes to reach work without violating the speed limit, and it’s now 5 minutes before the time you leave the house, you’d better know where your car keys are. If you don’t, and it takes you 10 minutes to find them, you’re going to be in a frenzied rush to get to work.

The result? Unsafe driving practices, such as speeding, not paying close enough attention to the road, etc. This can be compounded by the fact that you might have gotten pretty frustrated during the key search—and driving in a frustrated, angry state is something to be avoided.

Keep your car organized
Why is this important? Because if you know where a map, coupon, insurance papers, etc. are, you won’t have to waste time looking for them. Again, it keeps you from getting frustrated and upset, and it also means that you’ll spend less time at the side of the road, searching for stuff (you would at least pull over, right?).

So, stay organized—it’s part of driving safely.

It is very important to be organized in life. You don't have to rush to get to your work place.
While driving you should be relaxed and not tense and worried that you will reach in time or not. Ya, to put car keys at the right place is very important. If your life in general are organized you are driving and in control and you are attentive.
