Making The Streets Safe And Clear From Stress By Practicing Defensive Driving

By Leroy Tobin

You can save lives and enhance your driving experience by using defensive driving techniques when you are on the road. Getting upset and speeding through traffic won’t get you there any faster. In fact it may not get you there at all.

You are not alone on the road and drivers need to drive knowing that. Being a rude driver and expecting everyone to get out of your way while honking and flipping people off is not being a defensive driver and boarders on road rage which is against the law. More and more laws are now being passed about road rage, so watch out rude drivers!

“Driving to save lives, time, and money, in spite of the conditions around you and the actions of others” is the definition of defensive driving from the standard for Safe Practices of Motor Vehicles. It is the basic premise of keeping people safe on the road and free from harm by being a defensive driver and incorporating it into the way you are on the road.

This is where police officers come in. You ever said to yourself, “Where is a cop when you need one.” Well that is what they are there for. People that do not drive defensively and following the laws of the road will eventually be found. That is why it is so important to be a defensive driver because not everyone else is and you have to watch out for them.

For the new driver a defensive driving course is included in the training a person will receive. They will learn to be precautionary with others on the road and anticipate others actions to avoid accidents. A good driving school will not only talk about defensive driving with their students but they will reinforce it what the students is actually behind the wheel.

If a person has had an incident that involves a traffic accident of reckless driving then a judge may require a driver to take a defensive driving course before they are able to drive again. Or the judge may give them a certain amount of time to complete the course and bring proof back to the court or their license will be taken away.

If you are teaching your teenager to drive, or anyone for that matter, you want to ensure that you are teaching them how to be a defensive driver and why. You can also exhibit this to younger children while they are in your care to explain to them why being a good driver who is defensive is a good thing. This way by the time they become drivers it has been ingrained in them that being aware of the road is a good thing.

For the safety of all drivers on the road it is imperative that you practice defensive driving. By being constantly aware of your surroundings while driving will improve the safety of the road. Too many lives are lost each year because of reckless decisions. Do your part in keeping the roads safe.
