Each day, hundreds of vehicle will be sold irregardless of being first hand or second hand in the automobile market. Besides, with the escalating demand for cars the traffic condition worldwide had been terrible and it is getting worst over the years. The worst part is, driving under such stressful yet demanding condition is more dangerous as it seems. But the lucky thing, you can safeguard yourself and your car if you practise defensive driving. But what exactly is defensive driving?
Defensive driving, as it seems is the total opposite of competitive driving. The main understanding on such driving method lies entirely on you. It suggest that the better you control the car in a given road condition, the safer you will be. And such practise is carried out based on awareness, anticipation, responsibility and consideration for other drivers.
In order to practise safe driving, you will have to be constantly aware of your driving environment, since it will change constantly throughout your driving journey. Therefore, to ensure such practise can be made perfect, the main thing to do is to have a good observation skill. With a strong observation skill you will be able to have full access to the road condition and act accordingly. Hence, be sure to keep your eye to the front so that you can spot any danger that might arise, also at the same time, try to monitor the surrounding of your vehicle and the driving behaviour of other drivers as to prevent yourself from colliding with them.
Though keeping your eyes on the road can alert you in case of any danger or emergency, you will also need to analyse everything that you see. For instance, if you notice a person was about to cross the road, be extra alert because he/she might just rush out, therefore to prevent colliding with him/her, you will need to take note on all possible actions of that pedestrian so that you can brake or stop your car in case he/she jumps out of no where.
In order to be a good driver, the responsibility in driving had to be acknowledged, for instance, he/she should perform safe driving to safeguard his/her safety along with other neighbouring drivers. Therefore, actions like braking at the last seconds or speeding should be prevented if possible.
At times, accident occurs not by your own action but others therefore beware of other neighbouring vehicle in order to minimise the tendency of collision.
