The most important part of learning to drive is learning how to drive defensively. Defensive driving can help you avoid car accidents.

There are plenty of distractions on the road. And not everyone is giving driving their perfect attention. We all know people get into cars and share the road with us when they shouldn’t be driving. With the radio, cell phones, and outside distractions it’s important that anytime we get into the car, we give it our full attention.

Defensive driving is important because if others are distracted on the road it’s your job to make sure that you and those who are in your car are safe.defensive-driving-east-end-body-shop

Aggressive drivers are known as road hazards and cause one third of all crashes. So it’s important to remain calm during your drive and make sure that you are doing your best to drive according to the law so that others on the road can do the same.

Multitasking is one of the main problems with driving. People think they can do multiple things while driving, however, they don’t realize they already are. Watching their speed, being aware of others on the road, observing traffic signs, following directions and more, our attention is already split into these areas. If you try to split it any further, we take the attention off of the important driving focuses.

Remain alert while driving. If you are tired or distracted it stops you from remaining alert on what you are doing and those around you. If you are distracted and someone driving near you is distracted, it can only lead to disaster. Be aware of what you are doing at all times and those around you. This will allow you to avoid traffic collisions if someone around you isn’t paying attention.

Remember to stay aware of your surroundings, only get into a driver’s seat when you have the attention and focus to dedicate to it, and only put your energy and attention into driving, and nothing else.
