  • Ultimate Driver | Guidelines
    parking It is required that you indicate your intentions on time for the traffic to go smoothly Keeping the following driving lessons in mind will help you become a better driver Observations new drivers should remember from their driving lessons Make sure that you indicate your turns and change in direction well in advance Turn your indicator off as soon as you are finished making a turn or parking Don t indicate too early Make sure that you are 4 5 seconds away from the turn before turning your indicator on While making a left turn make sure that you signal as soon as you enter the left hand turning lane and your indicator should remain on while you are in the middle of the intersection waiting to make your turn Use your signals properly while parking Improper use of signals can result in misunderstanding and a crash Parking involves a number of direction changes and constant observation by drivers Make sure that your signals are in working order at all times Have them repaired as soon as you see a damaged signal You are a danger to other drivers if you signals are not working properly Keep these driving lessons in mind while making changes in direction while on the road or in parking lots Don t Fall for Road Rage Road rage is a serious problem in every city This is why beginner driving principles are so valuable Whether you are driving in Mississauga Kitchener Milton or Oakville you are bound to see road rage in action It is all too common that we hear cases of road rage where People yell and scream at others People hit other cars out of frustration People are pulled out of their vehicles at intersections People are assaulted People are shot or stabbed Traffic has become one of life s great stresses Longer wait time on the highways and increased time waiting to cross intersections has resulted in many drivers getting irritated and angry To avoid getting upset yourself drivers need to follow beginner driving practices A motorist forgetting to indicate or brake unexpectedly may trigger a violent reaction Follow beginner driving best practices and always be aware of your surroundings Obscene remarks are one of the most common reasons for road rage But there are still those who got hurt or killed for no reason Minimize your risk of becoming a road rage victim with beginner driving lessons Always drive with your doors locked Also shut windows if approached in an uninviting manner Drive in an orderly fashion Always think how your behaviour will affect motorists around you Check mirrors frequently signal early brake intelligently and don t change direction unless safe Don t aggravate any situation Get out of the way if someone insists on overtaking dangerously Don t try and teach anyone a lesson by driving slowly Follow beginner driving lessons Drive away from trouble If hassled leave the area Turn in the other direction or reverse Blast your horn wildly This irritates troublemakers and draws attention that something is wrong Try to identify the offender s Write down car number plates descriptions of vehicles and people involved Report the incident to the police as soon as possible Be a patient defensive driver and try to stay calm Turn on your radio and listen to keep your mind off traffic and you will be able to survive the stress Keep your mouth and car doors shut Myths and facts of road safety Drivers Ed will teach new drivers about the myths and facts associated with road safety They are as follows Myth 1 The car is insured I don t need to worry about my driving Fact Insurance costs continue to rise If you are in an accident you will pay for it Myth 2 Crashes only happen to speeders and seniors Fact The most common cause of a crash is due to bad judgment Driving under influence is one such example Bad drivers simply get noticed more because they stand out by their behaviour Take drivers Ed and learn the principles of effective driving Myth 3 Every new driver learns after he or she has been in a crash Fact Many responsible people have driven accident free for 20 30 or more years by adopting healthy attitudes from Drivers Ed which is reflected in their driving record Myth 4 Accidents are simple a part of driving and cannot be avoided Fact Part of this statement is sadly true However this kind of attitude can have fatal consequences and shows lack of responsibility Learning safe driving techniques from Drivers Ed practicing them and using them in everyday driving is a recipe for crash free driving Myth 5 After my probationary period is over I will have nothing to worry about Fact Statistically the first major crash happens just after coming off the probationary license at age 18 or so A healthy attitude and realistic approach towards your driving can help you be accident free for the rest of your life Myth 6 Driving is nothing but common sense Fact There is nothing wrong with applying common sense in every area of life But when you are in an emergency there is not much time to choose the right course of action after considering all options Certain road safety principles from Drivers Ed must be studied Myth 7 The more severe the punishment the safer the roads will be Fact Part of this is true and that is the reason we have more responsible drivers on the road There will always be lawbreakers amongst us no matter how harsh the punishment Often bad drivers are caught and are found guilty but with heavier fines repeat offenders should be given psychological help and be taken off the roads if there is no improvement The penalty should be decided according to how severe the crime is Myth 8 Getting bicycles and big trucks will make our roads safer and put drivers at ease Fact Drivers Ed teaches us that we already have certain roads where no trucks are allowed and marked pavements where bicyclists can ride Tolerance towards other slower road users and allowing them space is the hallmark of a low risk driver Myth 9 The better roads will mean lower crash rate Fact We learn in drivers Ed that the main cause of road crashes is human error over 90 to be more exact It is a good idea to keep your eyes wide open while driving and be aware of your surroundings Myth 10 every driver should practice skid control Fact Apart from the danger to drivers Ed instructors practicing skidding would achieve little Studies in Sweden have shown that new drivers who did get skid training had more crashes afterwards than a non trained group Follow by 1001 and 1002 At driving school we learn that most rear end collisions account for nearly a third of all crashes Looking away for just a second at the wrong moment and or traveling too closely behind another vehicle is the main cause Unfortunately this dangerous practice commonly called tailgating is widespread Some drivers may not even realize that they are following too closely never having learned the two second rule if they did not attend driving school When the vehicle ahead of you passes a certain fixed object tree road sign etc start counting slowly For example one thousand and one one thousand and two If you can finish this two seconds count comfortably before passing the object you are at a safe distance The magic of this formula is that it works at any speed and not only on a freeway At 80 km h or 100 km h two seconds are obviously a far greater distance than at 20km h Driving school teaches drivers to allow a further second or two under the following circumstances An icy wet or gravel road surface increased braking distance With limited visibility heavy rain fog at night When being followed too closely move away allow for the tailgater Following a learner driver Traveling at greater speeds for a long period this allows for extra reaction time Tailgating drivers must focus constantly on the vehicle ahead How do they read the road for danger further ahead The answer is they can t and this is why drivers are taught in driving school to remain a safe distance behind other cars Driving is much more relaxing and safe when Drivers travel at a safe distance Drivers scan traffic for hazards ahead Heavy braking can be avoided The correct lane is chosen early Turning vehicles can be overtaken safer Driving school will teach you that a couple of seconds can save your life Sometimes a little bit of patience and a few seconds can save your life and of others Most of us pay minimum attention to things like following distance visibility communication and of all speed the vehicle is moving in It is a common sight to see drivers moving at the posted speed limit when there is a police car driving around them but as soon as the police car is gone form sight the obvious happens drivers to back to driving over the speed limit We are very impatient towards drivers who follow speed limits and want them off the streets It is true and we learned this in driving school that like a speeding driver a slow driver is an equal hazard There are certain rules to driving and must be followed at all times Changing our routine will help save time and life on the road Go to driving school and learn the rules of the road so we can all drive safely Couple of seconds can save your life Driving school will teach you that a couple of seconds can save your life Sometimes a little bit of patience and a few seconds can save your life and of others Most of us pay minimum attention to things like following distance visibility communication and of all speed the vehicle is moving in It is a common sight to see drivers moving at the posted speed limit when there is a police car driving around them but as soon as the police car is gone form sight the obvious happens drivers to back to driving over the speed limit We are very impatient towards drivers who follow speed limits and want them off the streets It is true and we learned this in driving school that like a speeding driver a slow driver is an equal hazard There are certain rules to driving and must be followed at all times Changing our routine will help save time and life on the road Go to driving school and learn the rules of the road so we can all drive safely Driving under influence playing with life Imagine telling someone to jump in the water without giving them a lifejacket and not knowing if the person can swim or not Foolish isn t it Drinking and driving is even more stupid We don t have to take driving lessons to know that drinking and driving is a poor decision Alcohol and drugs affect our vital functions and it becomes difficult to perform ordinary tasks Major areas that are affected Co ordination steadiness Judgment Reaction time Impaired vision Driver education also teaches us that alcohol affects the brain and central nervous system which control the vital functions of our body Not only does alcohol affect a person mentally but also our physical ability to react to situations Alcohol effects accident preventing behaviour such as putting on your seat belt turning on the headlights and signalling turns Effective driver education teaches drivers to always think before they drink How will you get home from the party Is public transport available Who is the DD Can you get a lift with someone Will you get a taxi or be picked up Driver Education and Training teaches us some valuable information about drinking and driving Wine has same effect as any other alcohol product Alcohol affects teenagers and ladies much quicker than men People with smaller builds get effected much quicker Some people are less tolerant to alcohol then others Every person who drives before consuming any alcoholic drink must know how much he she can have before reaching the legal limit Insurance companies exclude liability if the driver is found to be over the limit It can be a very costly mistake The First drink affects your driving The legal limit Blood Alcohol Concentration in Canada is 08 Driver education teaches us that two glasses of beer in an hour can bring you to that limit One drink every hours after that will keep you on the brink With a G1 or G2 license alcohol limit is zero Drugs also can equally affect your driving Check with your doctor and read the label on your medications Alcohol and drugs together may form a very lethal combination Many young people have lost their lives and many people have destroyed lives just because they did not act responsibly and in accordance with what they learned during driver training Always remember one night s foolishness can become whole life s misery Speeding Better late than never Driver training teaches us that 40 of road crashes in Canada are due to one reason SPEEDING Running late is seldom anyone s fault But when we are late we try to make that time up on the road We completely forget that we are putting our and other people at risk by compromising on safety Very small change in life sometimes can increase safety and life Driving school teaches us that speed increases your risk of crashing in these different ways You will exceed your speed limit and increase risk to yourself other drivers and pedestrians Losing control of your vehicle You will sacrifice safety for speed Tailgating making sharp turns and changing lanes without checking properly Road rage Getting upset at other drivers just because they are following the speed limit Safe driver training practices tell us to try to understand the body language of other vehicles and look around for pedestrians crossing the street Keep a safe cushion between the cars in front of you so that just in case you have to brake you don t rear end the vehicle Always be aware of your surroundings Leave time for unexpected delays If you have a cell phone pull over and inform the other person of your unexpected delay if you are running late Avoid speeding as a means to make up lost time If you leave home 10 minutes early EXPECT TO ARRIVE 10 MINUTES EARLY Distraction means destruction In driving school changing a CD is a classic example of distracted driver Many of us will do this everyday without thinking twice about it Many drivers think that since they have driver training and experience they can do no wrong There have been many people who have been stopped by police because they were too busy driving and shaving on their way to office reading map book eating lunch talking on their cell phone and doing many other things that they were taught not to do in driving school Without thinking we sometimes put our and others in danger for no reason Simply making small changes in the everyday routine can create safe roads and make you an alert defensive driver There are three categories of Distraction we are taught during drivers Ed 1 Unforeseen events An insect buzzes around in the car A spider crawls onto the dashboard The natural reaction is to flick it At high speed this can lead to serious disasters Turning around to tend to children or babies trying to wipe a fogged up windscreen the list is endless all must be done after stopping the vehicle Listen to your driving instructors when they warn you about distractions 2 Deliberate neglect Eating drinking smoking whilst driving Changing a CD or tape or playing with the radio or other accessories Fastening the seatbelt adjusting mirrors or seats reading the road map on the move have caused drivers to lose control The use of mobile phones has also become a cause of concern We are all taught to not do these things while driving during at driving school 3 Outside distractions Sightseeing window shopping watching unusual events such as an accident looking for an address or landmark etc all take attention away from the road ahead Driver training teaches us to focus on the road not outside distractions Night time driving Many drivers are afraid of driving at night Sometimes even on a clear night one cannot see as well as during daytime Because light travels faster than sound often you can see headlights of a vehicle at a distance But it is still harder to judge speed and distance at night By remembering a few minor things from your driving lessons you can increase your and safety of other drivers on the road Keep your headlights on at night Make sure that your headlights are clean Windshield and glasses should also be clean Always drive with low beam head lights Make sure that the rear view mirror is adjusted to night time vision Headlights have two functions Visibility and Communication One of the most common problems you will learn about in driving school about night time driving is Over driving your headlights Over driving is driving so fast when your stopping distance is greater than the distance your headlights allow you to see For example you are traveling on a dry road at 80km h and need 60m to stop your car Driving school instructors teach us that driving with your low beam headlights you can only see at the distance of 45m ahead This means that once your headlights spot something in the road 45m ahead you won t be able to
