Drive Defensively To Stay Accident Free

Defensive Skill Training .Com Sdn Bhd Malaysia Defensive Driving CourseDriving is risky business. As a defensive driver, you can avoid crashes and help lower your risk behind the wheel.

If you've been out on the roads, you know that not everyone drives well. Some people speed aggressively. Others wander into another lane because they aren't paying attention. Drivers may follow too closely, make sudden turns without signaling, or weave in and out of traffic.

Aggressive drivers are known road hazards, causing one third of all traffic crashes. But inattentive driving is becoming more of a problem as people "multitask" by talking on the phone, texting or checking messages, eating, or even watching TV as they drive. You can't control the actions of other drivers. But updating your defensive driving skills can help you avoid the dangers caused by other people's bad driving.

Stay focused

Driving is primarily a thinking task and you have a lot of things to think about when you're behind the wheel like road conditions, your speed and position, observing traffic laws, signs and signals, following directions, being aware of the cars around you, checking your mirrors and the list goes on. Staying focused on driving and only driving is the key.

Stay alert

Being alert (not sleepy or under the influence) allows you to react quickly to potential problems like when the driver in the car ahead slams on the brakes at the last minute. Obviously, alcohol or drugs affect a driver's reaction time and judgment. Driving while drowsy has the same effect and is one of the leading causes of crashes. So rest up before your road trip.
