Chapter 7. Physical Health

  • Cell phones cause you take your eyes off the road, which is dangerous if the car in front of you stops unexpectedly
  • Thinking too much can be a distraction! I got a speeding ticket because I was thinking about something rather than paying attention to my speed
  • Obviously, don’t drive while your brain is impaired by recent alcohol consumption
  • Also, don’t drive if your brain is impaired by being too tired
  • Give other drivers enough time and distance to react to your turns, stops, and lane changes
  • Always use your turn signal, even if you don’t think you need it, so that cars around you can react to you
  • Use your turn signal ahead of time to signal your desire to change lanes, not just when you are actually changing lanes
  • Be aware of your blind-spots and the blind-spots of others
  • Truck drivers have a blind spot along their right side, so don’t pass them on the right because they might not see you. (A friend of mine didn’t know this… almost got hit by a truck)
  • Be very careful if you are riding a motorcycle. They can be very dangerous.
