Top 5 Defensive Driving Techniques to Avoid a Car Accident

Top 5 Defenšive Driving Techniques to Avoid a Car Accident Most of us enjoy the sound of the engine revving as we drive to our destination. However, as the driver, we must realise that when our tyres meet the road, we're responsible for each other's lives and safety. This infographic shows five defensive driving techniques to avoid a car accident: 1. Slow Down and Don't Tailgate Leave two seconds distance To create a safe driving environment, stick to the designated speed limit and keep at least two seconds driving distance between you and the car ahead. This ensures that the driver in front isn't pressured to speed up, and gives you plenty of space to brake. 2. Let Others Pass You Yes, it may be tempting to race with speeding motorists or give them a taste of their own fuel, however these are the types of drivers you should avoid. An intelligent defensive driver lets others pass them and knows that a speed camera is just around the corner! 3. Use Your Indicator Whether you're about to change lanes or turn on a roundabout, ensure that you correctly indicate a few seconds before driving to your desired path. Communication is key in creating a safe and fluid driving experience. 4. Keep Your Eyes Moving An efficient, defensive driver keeps their eyes focused not only on the road ahead, but regularly to the side-view and rear-view mirrors. Learning to focus your eyes a few metres forward gives you time to prevent potentially dangerous situations. 5. Dim Your High Beam When a car is approaching on the other lane or if you're behind another vehicle at night, kindly dim your high beam. Not doing so can temporarily blind a driver and his passengers during oncoming traffic, causing serious danger for everyone.
