Here’s my third post about Skillful driving. A skilled driver knows what the right timing is and so as the do’s and don’ts in driving.
- Drive at a steady speed that coincides with the timing of traffic lights- good timing gets you to your destination with the least trouble.
- Enter an expressway at the exact rate cars on the expressway are traveling.
- Avoid peak traffic periods by timing your departure just right – by leaving a few minutes early or late, it is possible to miss a mass of inbound traffic or outbound traffic.
- Take time to rest – a tired or sleepy driver’s timing is always off – if tired, take a rest or break – if sleepy, stay awake by turning up the radio, letting in the fresh air, chewing gum, singing.
- Abandon this principle of good timing simply because it may have limitations in heavy traffic or on urban expressways.
- Brake or slow down on entering expressway, causing followers to slowdown while you attempt to accelerate.
- Wait until just minutes before an important appointment to get your car road-ready.
- Wait until a “close call” jolts you wide awake and emphasizes the need for precaution. A closer call may leave you permanently asleep. ^_^
