Factors that Influence You, the Driver.

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in southernbelledriver

Your emotions affect the way you drive. Whether you are calm, anxious or hot-tempered strong emotions can interfere with your ability to think and reason. This reduces your ability to make safe decisions. It is a challenge to not let your emotions interfere with safe driving. Use good judgment, common sense, courtesy, and safe driving rules to ensure your safety and the safety of others.

Good driving habits enable a driver to recognize and stay away from danger as well as react correctly in an emergency. There are five important driving habits: In normal driving, your left foot should be firmly placed on the foot rest. Stay away from problems as you drive. Use the brakes to slow down and change gears separately after braking. Keep good separation from other vehicles. Be able to stop in the distance you can see ahead.

Emotions like rage, intolerance and bad attitudes that can negatively affect your driving because they can cause you to concentrate on a single event and not your driving task. These bad habits frequently lead to Unsafe Speed – the number one cause of crash fatalities, aggressive and overly risky driving, as well as loss of control of your vehicle.

Recognize when you are not fit to drive. Your emotions also affect the way you relate to others. If you are in good condition emotionally, you will be able to judge whether your passengers are giving you good or bad driving advice. If you are upset, you may follow a friend’s bad advice because you are not thinking clearly. If you feel good, your judgment will be better than if you are angry.
