Nine Tips for Safe Driving Every Driver Should Keep in Mind
1. Drivers should know, before they rev up their engines, where they are going. Knowing how to get from point A to point B is a driving skill. Whether you consult a map, your GPS device or Goggled driving directions, know where you’re going and how to get there.
2. Folks behind the wheel should be aware of what’s going on around them. They should continually glance into their rear-view mirrors, side-view mirrors, to the left, to the right and straight ahead. Master drivers develop a sense of what’s happening around them.
3. Knowing how to react to something that happens is as important as the timing when to react to a driving event. Which way do you turn your wheels if you start skidding in snow? When must you slam on the brakes, and when should you pump them? The driver’s manual is everyone’s best friend.
4. Defensive driving is the best technique for keeping people safe. Defensive drivers are alert and aware that anything can happen from any direction. Drivers should, at all times, make sure they leave enough space between their vehicles and cars ahead of them to stop in case of an unexpected event ahead of them.
5. Drive the speed limit, except when the safe speed is a slower speed. Speed limits are set for the best driving conditions. Rain, sleet, fog and amount of traffic on the road dictate a lower speed limit. Going with the flow of traffic is also a good rule of thumb.
6. There is no appropriate time for making cell phone calls or text-messaging while driving. There is no appropriate time for making cell phone calls or text-messaging while driving. There is no good time… Do not do it.
7. Mature, safe drivers do not hit the brakes to throw off tailgaters. Neither are they intimidated into driving faster than is safe. Gradually slowing down and giving tailgaters an opportunity to pass works sometimes. At others, the tailgater simply needs to calm down and go with the flow. Driving Events
8. Keeping a calm, level head works wonders when other drivers try to cut you off or drive too slowly ahead of you. Emotion has no place behind the wheel of a vehicle.
9. Safe drivers are courteous to other drivers and pedestrians. They let other drivers know what they are doing by using proper signals. They keep their minds on their driving and their hands on the wheel.
And they lay off the cell phones.
