We all like to believe that we are good drivers. In one survey carried out, most people believed they were better than average drivers but they had nearly all been involved in some type of road traffic accidents and nearly all of them believed it was not their fault. Although we are taught all the skills needed to be a good driver when we are learning, even a good driver is at risk of an accident.
Some of the key factors of being a good driver are being able to control the car properly knowing its size and capabilities; you should choose a car that suits you. You need to be able to read the road and react to different things such as the ever-changing road conditions, the unpredictable weather, road signs and the environment.
So even though we are all good drivers, it was found in a 1985 report that human factors are usually partly or wholly the cause of 93% of crashes. Although young people are believed to have quicker reactions, they are also involved in more accidents. Older people sometimes have the experience to control the car better if it goes out of control, for instance on an icy road.
