Look Before You LeaveJanuary 25, 2011 | in Driver Safety For You & Your Family
Driving is often taken for granted, however, is a very hands-on, serious task that requires focus and skill. During my commute this morning, I was reminded how evident it is for drivers to ignore or simply fail to recall driving rules and laws that provide safety for other roadway users. On two occasions within a 15 minute interval, I witnessed two individuals simply complete a lane change without looking, and to top it off, no signal accompanied their maneuver.
Having this form of experience is not preferable but reminded me of the importance of taking an approved defensive driving course-not only for those seeking ticket dismissal, but for education.
Our driver training includes topics related to driving such as; traffic control signals, lanes, driving in inclement weather, visual perception, and other important topics such as pedestrians, littering and organ donation.
According to an industry expert:
“All told, the cost of auto crashes in the United States is more than one hundred fifty billion dollars every year … with more than seven billion just in Texas. And then, there’s your time.”
Taking an approved defensive driving course is a good investment. Register today to learn more. Remember, Look Before You Leave Your Lane!
