Tips for safer driving
Whether you have been driving for years or have only just passed your test, there are things you can do to make yourself a better driver and ensure that you won’t get into a road accident in Warwick even if you are threatened by another driver behaving badly. Improving your driving skills doesn’t have to mean taking a course, just follow these simple steps and you will soon be a much safer driver.
- Know where your emergency brake is. If your brakes fail when you are in a sticky situation, you need to know where your emergency brake is and be able to operate it in a split second. Learn where your emergency brake is and practice using it when you are driving so that you will be prepared for the worst.
- Maintain your vehicle. Your car needs to be in the best possible shape so that you can avoid accidents which simply happen because your car fails. Get your car serviced regularly and learn how to perform a quick check yourself, so that you can check your car over before setting off on any long journeys.
- Use glasses and avoid driving at night if your night vision is poor. Some people simply have bad night vision which makes it difficult to see when it is dark. If you night vision is bad then try to avoid driving at night, and if you need glasses make sure that they are always in your car for when you need them.
- Plan your route. Knowing exactly where you are going will help you to pay more attention to what is actually going on on the road.
