Rules of the Road: Being a Good Driver Also Means Paying…

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

So you know what every traffic sign and signal mean; you follow all the posted speed limits and have not even once thought about taking an illegal u-turn. Does this mean you are a great driver? Well, not necessarily, as even those who follow all the rules can get into serious accidents; this is exactly why it’s important to learn important defensive driving techniques, such as paying attention to others on the road!

Being a good driver means being aware of your surroundings at all times, and this includes being aware and anticipating the possible intentions of other drivers. Indeed, being mindful of the cars around you is basic to preventing accidents from happening. It’s a good idea to think about the possibility for other cars to change lanes unexpectedly, stop suddenly, or display another dangerous driving behavior which could potentially cause you to be in harm’s way. Undoubtedly, following all the traffic laws is well and good, but this absolutely must be coupled with being aware of other cars and in general, your surroundings on the road.

Check your mirrors, check your blind spots, and keep your eyes moving! Doing so will certainly help to keep you and others safe while you’re behind the wheel. Be sure to pay attention to others, and also don’t hesitate to increase your driving knowledge and skills by taking a high quality defensive driving course. Be sure to find out more about how you can become a better driver today!
