Defensive Driving, Car Safety And Survival | episode 133
This week we cover defensive driving. How to stay safe on the roads.
I got this question in from a listener and knew it would be a great topic.
I talk about the lesson my Uncle taught me when I was learning to drive. To treat all other drivers like idiots.
That lesson has served me well over the years. And so far without any accidents.
To implement the rule I imagine a bubble around my car and try to not let any cars in it. I don’t tailgate nor allow myself to be tailgated.
In generally don’t like vehicles on my sides either.
I talked about using your situational awareness while driving.
Just like you would know the exits when in a restaurant know your exits while driving. And I don’t mean interstate exits.
I mean to say how you would avoid collisions, traffic jams etc.
I go on to cover what to do if your being followed and chased.
- Treat other drivers like idiots.
- Use your situational awareness when driving
- Cell phones are a hindrance
- Maintain proper distance
- Look ahead and around
How to tell if you’re being followed
- Make 4 left or right turns
- Get off and back on the interstate
What to do if you’re being chased.
- Call the police
- Don’t stop and don’t go home
- Drive to a busy public location
- Drive to a police station
- Disabled their car
