When it comes to driving, safety should always be number one priority. Not only for the sake of your well-being, but also for the wellbeing of others.
In the interest of everyone’s well-being, we have written this post which informs you of the key aspects of safe driving.
This way, we can make the road safer for everyone.
First things first, you need to remove or adjust for any distractions that you might face whilst driving.
A good example of this would be to put your phone on mute and out of sight. It could be in your pocket, bag etc… But if you cannot see or hear it, it is less likely to distract you.
Another small thing could be to move your car air freshener. When driving, the air freshener can often be seen in the corner of your eye, and can often be a nuisance.
To combat this, we suggest simply storing it in a compartment such as the glove box while you’re driving. Then simply put it back up once your done.
This key is to do with how you drive. There are a few things you can do to improve the safety of your positioning.
You should ensure that the distance between you and other vehicles is sufficient enough for you to be able to react in time to anything they might do.
Second off, is making sure that you position your car in places that allow you to be able to best see what’s coming, and that other cars can see you coming.
This way, you will reduce the amount of reactive scenarios that you and other drivers will encounter.
Last but certainly not least is anticipation. It is important when driving to always anticipate other road users.
Whilst you would assume that they would all drive sensibly, this is unfortunately not the case. Some people drive aggressively and assume that you are going to always get out their way.
However sometimes this isn’t possible. So to help you stay safe, we recommend that you always anticipate fellow drivers and act accordingly.
For example, if you are on a dual carriageway that is turning into a single lane, and you are side by side with someone, watch to see if they try to accelerate.
If they do, you can tell that they are keen to get ahead. So rather than risking any problems, allow them to join the lane first.
As with all things driving related, you do have to adapt accordingly to each driver, and use your common sense to figure out the best approach.
But by following these key steps you will find that driving safely will become easier regardless.
