Introduction
Defensive driving certainly doesnt guarantee a
nonoccurrence of an accident. But it definitely
raises the bar of your safety. As a defensive
driver, you avoid crashes and lower the risks of
accidents behind the wheel. Here are a few proven
ways though which you can opt for effective
defensive driving.
3
Remove distractions
Distractions are considered to be one of the
primary causes of accidents. These include things
like using cell or changing music during the
drive and so on. Stay focused on the task at hand
which is driving and ONLY driving.
4
Stay alert
Bring alert enables you to react quickly! If you
are tired, take a break, stop at a rest area and
take a walk. Plan your trip in advance and stop
for refreshments. Better to arrive safely than
not at all. Studies prove fatigued driving is
very dangerous.
5
Be aware of your surroundings
Always mind your surroundings while you are one
the road. Check your mirrors frequently and scan
the conditions of the road ahead. If you have
another vehicle on your tail, be a courteous
driver and let them pass.
6
Be within speed limits
Speed limits are there for a reason. Stick to the
speed limit and lower when conditions require it.
If you are driving slower than the flow of the
traffic, stay in the slow lane of traffic.
7
DO NOT tailgate
Tailgating always puts you at a risk of an
accident because you can never guess the
intention of the driver ahead of you. Therefore,
its always advisable to maintain a minimum safe
distance. Maintain at least a 3 second distance
from the vehicle in front of you.
8
Avoid blind spot driving
A blind spot is an area around a vehicle that
cannot be directly observed by the driver. So
avoid driving in blind spots at all cost. Either
slow down to get behind or speed up to get in
front just make sure you get out of the blind
spot as soon as possible.
