Whether you are an experienced driver or not doesn’t affect whether you are a good driver or not. The most experienced drivers can often be the perpetrators of some of the worst driving practices as it is so long since they passed their test that they are less concerned with the right way to drive. If you have been driving for a long time it may be worth checking your driving practices to make sure that you haven’t slipped and that you are still a good enough driver to avoid a road accident in Wokingham.
- Be conscious of any possible problems. This will include bad weather and heavy traffic, that should affect how you drive and whether you need to be more careful or not. In extreme weather conditions it is always advised that you avoid driving altogether, but if you cannot avoid the journey you should know how to alter your driving to be safer.
- Focus. It cannot be stated enough that it is important you focus when behind the wheel. More confident drivers are more often to blame for accidents which happen purely because they are not focusing. Talking on a mobile phone, eating or fiddling with the radio can easily cause an accident, as you are not focused on the road ahead or the vehicles around you.
- Look out for potential problems. Don’t just focus on the road ahead, but keep an eye out for cars and pedestrians around you who may cause a possible problem. If you can identify a potential hazard before it gets too close then you will be able to prevent an accident happening.
