Here’s a simple – and maybe shocking – truth: if you’re over the age of 30 and got your license in your teens, then the driving environment you learned in just doesn’t exist anymore. If you’re older than that, things have changed a whole lot.
It’s been a decade or longer since you’ve had anyone evaluate your driving skills. For most people, that means it’s been quite a while since they seriously thought about their driving performance.
What kind of driver are you? If you’re an average driver, you rarely stop at stop signs. You often violate the right of way of other road users. About half of licensed drivers don’t use their turn signals properly. Most drivers follow too closely to other traffic and don’t adjust speed correctly for road conditions.
Maybe you’ve been okay so far – no crashes or tickets in a while. But if you do any of these things, it’s only a matter of time before something bad happens. Everyone’s luck runs out at some point.
Did you know that, if you’re in a crash and the responding officer writes you up for one of these violations, your insurance premiums could rise by 25% or more? That’s even if you’re not at fault.
The good news is, we can help. Take a drive with one of our professional driving instructors and get some expert feedback about your driving. In most cases, we can recommend simple behavior changes that can dramatically decrease your odds of being involved in a car crash.
If someone told you that you could add years to your life by changing one little habit, wouldn’t you listen?
