Dr.Boxer draws upon his decades of driving experience, as well as his observations as a passenger, pedestrian, and teacher, in this guide to becoming a safer, more courteous driver. Whether you are a parent helping to teach a teenager who is learning to drive safely, or you wish to become a safer driver, you are very likely to benefit from “SANE DRIVING IN A MAD WORLD.
Learn about newer safety advances and how to pick a safer car. Learn how to best handle a traffic stop, an accident, or one on the side of the road, a stalled car, a car on fire, and how to share the road with trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians.
Protect yourself and those you care about by arming yourself with the information you need to be a sane driver in a mad world.
Older people have difficulty concentration, shorter attention spans and failing vision among other ailments. Unfortunately this results in frequent driving mishaps, sometimes with catastrophic results. Taking away their driving privileges would deprive them of their self esteem and independence. This could happen if they continued to have accidents caused by their propensity to get distracted easily and lose concentration. Some states have already enacted laws requiring re-exams for seniors. No doubt many more will follow.
Driving slower in traffic is not the answer. This could cause accidents. Driving too fast would be worse since a person’s attention span and reaction time deteriorate with age. It does not matter how skillful he or she once were, aging diminishes skill in almost all areas including the operation of a motor vehicle. Driving today has become more complex as many more cars are on the road. When seniors started to drive, turnpikes and expressways were non existent.
After observing the avoidable accidents seniors were having, and realizing how their ranks were exploding, I decided to write “The Senior Driver’s Survival Guide” – subtitled What You Must Know to Protect Your Driving Privileges.
Its contents can enable older drivers to drive with a more acute awareness and help them to be better drivers in their “Golden” years.
It is an important book which has the power to change and save lives.
Every year, six million sons and daughters will become first-time drivers. Fifty-eight percent of them will be involved in a car accident within a year of getting their license, and a significant portion of these crashes will be fatal. But here's the good news: research has shown that car crashes can be reduced by up to 30 percent when you, the parent, are actively involved in your teen's instruction and set certain limits.
In Crashproof Your Kids, certified driving instructor and dad Timothy Smith has combined the collective wisdom of numerous experts to develop the Crashproof Plan: a series of behind-the-wheel exercises designed to improve your teen's driving awareness, behavior, and skill in a way that fits your schedule. Written in a highly accessible, informal, and often humorous style, this comprehensive plan begins where drivers' education programs end, and includes:
• A step-by-step plan to develop your teen's braking, car control, and defensive driving skills
• How to handle road emergencies and basic car maintenance
• Tips on helping your teen deal with dangerous distractions, including peer pressure and the use of alcohol and drugs
• The Crashproof Contract, which outlines the expectations, responsibilities, and rules of the road for both the teen and the parent
You'll get plenty of help on how to communicate vital driving concepts to your teen, and you'll laugh, learn, and sympathize with stories from parents who have already been there. Crashproof Your Kids is an essential resource for any parents wanting to help their teenagers successfully navigate the single most dangerous activity they'll ever undertake.
This defensive driving text is for learners to study as well as instructors, parents or friends who wish to know ‘how and what’ to correctly and safely teach in 4 easy lessons.
Some time ago I read that the 17 to 25 year age group only make up 15% of our total population but account for a huge 35% to 40% of our road deaths. This statistic alone prompted me to write this book in an attempt to help parents to teach their children correctly and to give learner drivers a reference book so they will hopefully learn correctly from day one.
This has been written in an easy to understand way, with many useful illustrations to assist, by former Australian Police Driving Instructor, Trevor Hobbs. The original paperback copy of this book (From L to P) sold 29,000 copies in Australia and was widely praised as one of the best defensive driver training books around. This has been formatted for optimal viewing on the iPad and other tablets.
REMEMBER - 90% of all motor vehicle crashes are caused by human error. Teach your child to drive safely, and you could potentially save their life.
There are two versions of this eBook: For driving on the left hand side of the road (Yellow Cover) and for driving on the right hand side of the road - Blue cover.
