Reversing If you have something large in the boot of your car,
which you have to tie down the boot, expect others to
take advantage of your situation by parking about
two inches behind you in such a way that you
can't see any part of the trickster's car until you hear
Such drivers are fond of sneaking up behind you,
Conclusion: Do not back up if you cannot have a clear
view of the area behind you. Malicious youngsters are
fond of placing shopping carts against the front or back of
vehicles in such a way that you will not see the cart until
you start to pull away and your vehicles sends a shopping
cart hurtling.When you return to your vehicle,
check for such mischief.
The speed limit says: 40 – 50 – 60 – 70 – 80 – 90 – 100 – 110
What speed should you be doing 38 – 48 – 58 – 68 – 78 - 88 - 98 - 108 “WHY”?
Give me a good reason why you need to drive faster.
There is no such thing as safe speeding
, Take it easy, Keep your speed down, do not drive fast because
someone else is going faster than you.
When driving a vehicle you have a responsibility, Not your right, But
a privilege. "Safe Speeding - There’s no such thing”
Why' you may ask; is it important to be a back seat driver?
As a qualified Instructor for the past 47 years I would say that
parents teach their children most of what they know which
may or may not be correct.Children from the age of their
first day home from Hospital
will learn and copy their parents ways and mannerism
and this is also an issue while they are watching parents drive
Mum drives one way and Dad drives another way and
both may claim to be the better driver
When the student is near ready for a driving test this is the time that
the Driving Instructor is required to mold the student to pass the test.
Once the student passes the driving test, their driving
standard will no longer be monitored by the parents
At this time of great pride getting the P's, and also being allowed
to drive without supervision “who will monitor the student”
and which driving standard will be adopted, the
Mom's the Dad's or the Driving Instructor,
I know the Driving Instructor does not have a chance
with say 12 hours against 17 years of parents mentoring.
This is why Parents need to upgrade their own driving standard
and I am sure that 2 hours is all that would be needed to
make that improvement to pass on to their son or daughter
This is the effort a parent needs to make and why not?. .
