3 Reasons Why Learning Defensive Driving Can Save Your Life

Written by Mark Anson

One of the most important safety boosting factors on the road is not hi-tech car features but a manner or style of driving that everybody should learn. We’re talking about defensive driving. You may be the most careful driver out there, but if you’re on the road with various situations happening that pose all types of dangers, then the risks for accidents remain high. You cannot control other drivers out there but you can place yourself in a position to respond effectively in case anything does happen.

Defensive driving is all about being aware of potential troubles and implementing measures to avoid them before they transpire. It’s proactive instead of reactive. When a hazard comes along, you don’t want a spontaneous reaction to be your main defence, and yet, it’s quite common for people to drive in a reactionary manner. For this reason, it’s really important that you learn defensive driving; it can very well save your life.
