WHY TAKE DEFENSIVE DRIVING?
More than 41,000 people lose their lives in motor vehicle crashes each year and over 2 million more suffer disabling injuries, according to the National Safety Council. The triple threat of high speeds, impaired or careless driving and not using occupant restraints threatens every driver - regardless of how careful or how skilled.
Driving Defensively means not only taking responsibility for yourself and your actions but also keeping an eye on
-----"the other guy"-----
The National Safety Council suggests the following guidelines to help reduce your risks on the road:
Don't start the engine without securing each passenger in the car, including children and pets.
Safety belts saves thousands of lives each year.
Lock all doors.
Remember that driving too fast or too slow can increase the likelihood of collisions.
Don't kid yourself. If you plan to drink, designate a driver who won't drink.
Alcohol is a factor in almost half of all fatal motor vehicle crashes.
Be alert! If you notice that a car is straddling the center line, weaving, making wide turns, stopping abruptly or responding slowly to traffic signals, the driver may be impaired.
Avoid an impaired driver by turning right at the nearest corner or exiting at the nearest exit.
If it appears that an oncoming vehicle is crossing into your lane, pull over to the roadside, sound the horn and flash the lights.
Pull over and notify the police immediately after seeing a motorist who is driving suspiciously.
Follow the rules of the road. Don't contest the "right of way" or try to race another car during a merge.
Be respectful of other motorists.
While driving, be cautious, aware and responsible.
DO NOT DRIVE DISTRACTED
