Safe Driving Techniques Everyone Should Know
AODD’s Online Traffic School strives to provide our students with the knowledge they need to drive safely. Here are a few safe driving techniques that you should know before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle:
Zipper Method: When traffic is merging into one lane, use the zipper method. This means letting in one car and going, then the car behind you will let it in then can also go on. This increases the speed of traffic, so everyone can get to their destination quicker. Trying to force your way in or blocking other cars only increases traffic, which can also cause safety problems as well, not to mention road rage.
Stay at Speed: Go with the flow of traffic and stay within the speed limit. Driving too slowly can be very dangerous and can cause other drivers to crash or crash into you. Driving too fast is also dangerous, so control your speed.
Both Hands on the Steering Wheel: The only time that you have one hand on the steering wheel is when you are changing gears. Otherwise, both hands need to be on the steering wheel at all times. This allows you to react quickly to any changing situations.
Safe Distance: Always keep a safe distance from the car ahead of you. This will give you time to react if they brake suddenly or if something happens to them. This will also make sure they do not roll back into your car if they are driving a manual and are on an incline.
Go to a Traffic School: Going to an Online Traffic School in San Juan Capistrano CA is also a great way to improve your skills and knowledge of driving. These schools can teach you things that you may have never considered or thought about before. Even if you have experienced driving, we may be able to teach you something new.
Make sure you are following safe driving techniques to not only keep yourself safe but to also keep everyone around you safe. If you would like to enroll or find out more about driving, please check out our website today at www.aoddca.com. Safety should always come first!
