1. Transportation Tuesday TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY SAFE DRIVERS FEWER ACCIDENTS
2. Transportation Tuesday HABIT NUMBER ONE: YOUR LEFT FOOT SHOULD BE FIRMLY PLACED ON THE FOOT REST
Left foot support when braking or steering helps you retain good balance posture which produces less fatigue and greater control in an emergency.
Practice taking left foot support on the footrest whenever you brake or steer.
3. Transportation Tuesday HABIT NUMBER TWO: LOOK AT SOLUTIONS AND AWAY FROM PROBLEMS AS YOU DRIVE There may be a sudden emergency, like an animal on the road, or you may not be quite sure what another driver is going to do.
Very dangerous situations occur when vehicles are hidden from view behind other vehicles like bicycles and motorcycles.
4. Transportation Tuesday HABIT NUMBER THREE: USE THE BRAKES TO SLOW DOWN AND CHANGE GEARS SEPERATELY AFTER BRAKING Changing down gear during braking applies more stress on the vehicle transmission in addition to the dangers that could raise.
It is wise to select the correct gear after braking in an auto just like you do in a manual. (Your Vehicle’s handbook has more information.)
5. Transportation Tuesday HABIT NUMBER FOUR: KEEP GOOD SEPERATION FROM OTHER VEHICLES Keep two seconds away from the vehicle in front.
You may need three seconds if the road is wet, or the surface is slippery or the traffic is travelling at speeds below 40 kph.
We need more time at slow speed than at high speed because of the phenomena of reaction time.
6. Transportation Tuesday HABIT NUMBER FIVE: BE ABLE TO STOP IN THE DISTANCE YOU CAN SEE AHEAD You may calculate this by using the formula: at 60 kph it takes about 3 seconds to stop; at 100kph about 4 seconds.
Approach hill crests, bends and other situations where your seeing is limited, judge what would be a safe speed and approach at that speed.
7. Transportation Tuesday IN EMERGENCY,YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO THINK. YOUR BODY IS PLUNGED INTO “FIGHT OR FLIGHT” AND YOU REACT IN LINE WITH YOUR WELL PRACTICED HABITS.
