Driving defensively means that you drive calmly and calculatedly, without taking unnecessary risks, and with an adapted speed. It also means that you drive with good safety margins, have good supervision both forwards and backwards and that you are always ready to act.
By driving defensively you lower the risk of surprising others as well being taken by surprise yourself, which contributes to increased traffic safety.
