(BASIC DEFENSIVE DRIVING SKILL & TIPS)
As a driver, one of the most basic driving skills you can acquire is a good attitude towards other drivers. It is important to remember that you are in control of the car that could potentially be a lethal weapon. Stay positive and do not become stressed out at other drivers and their bad road manners. Staying patient is the key to any basic driving skills.
Keep a constant watch on your surroundings and be aware of people and vehicles around you at all times. Check your mirrors frequently, and always check your blind spots by looking over your shoulder before making turns and lane changes. Knowing what is going on behind you is often overlooked, but it is extremely important to know whether cars behind you are too close, too fast or trying to overtake.
Remember that you share the road with others. Trucks, motorcyclists, cyclists and pedestrians all call for your attention and courtesy on the road. It is important to remember that other vehicles have different needs. For example, trucks need extra stopping room and wider turning lanes; buses need to enter traffic from stopping lanes; and when passing cyclists in narrow lanes, they should be given the full width.
