Is there ever a BAD time for safe driving tips? With the weather warming up, our agency believes it is time to refresh everyone on road safety! This week, we want to discuss the term “defensive driving.”
Many may ask “What is defensive driving, exactly?”
The simple answer: Defensive driving is simply driving in a manner that uses safe driving strategies to enable motorists to address identified hazards in a predictable manner. This is a great way to reduce risks on the road because, in other words, you will learn how to anticipate problems and accidents before they actually happen.
There are plenty of ways to learn more about defensive driving. You could always sign up for a defensive driving class or even an online defensive driving course! Most of these classes cover the same information, including:
• Traffic crash info
• State traffic laws
• Psychological factors
• Human factors, such as DUI
• The dynamics of a car crash
• Car crash prevention techniques
• Safety equipment
What are the benefits of defensive driving?
Not only will you be minimizing risks, but taking such a class may result in ticket dismissal, cut points from driving records, etc.
Believe it or not, but taking a course may actually help improve your auto insurance premium, too. If you do decide to take a class, be sure to call our agency and report back. We may be able to cut you a break!
