There is a great Hannah Moore quote, “The world does not require so much to be informed as reminded.”
This is so true when it comes to the skill of driving. Driving is something we do daily, yet we take the act of driving for granted. I know personally I think about ten other things while I am driving other than the actual act of driving. Sure, I am checking the rear view and side view mirrors, I am maintaining an appropriate space cushion, but a lot of the time I am not thinking about driving, I am thinking about something completely different.
I am listening to the radio, I am talking to my daughter in the back seat, I am thinking about the day ahead or behind, what I am going to do in the upcoming week. Literally, I am thinking about everything other than what I am actually doing, which is driving. I would venture a guess I am not the only one… we all take driving for granted and forget the task of what we are doing.
Which is why DefensiveDriving.com’s courses are great for providing a reminder about what we are doing. For fleet driver training, for point reduction of if you specifically need a Florida State traffic school, DefensiveDriving.com’s courses provide subtle reminders of the following:
Traveling at 60 MPH, you need 303 FEET to come to a complete stop…
A mature driving attitude is necessary, if you are angry or sad, your attitude impacts your ability to drive.
Distracted driving is just as dangerous as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Put the phone down.
These simple reminders need to be reiterated, so even if you do not need to take for point reduction or ticket dismissal, take it for the simple reminder and qualify for a discount on auto insurance, do it more to be reminded vs. informed. A friendly reminder below.
