Every time you get behind the wheel, you’re operating a very dangerous piece of machinery. Whether you’re an experienced driver or you’ve just finished driver’s ed class, there’s always room for improvement when it comes to driving. Here are ten things you can do to hone your safe, smart driving skills.
Take a Defensive Driving Course
Not only can online driving courses save you money on your car insurance or take points off your driving record, they’re actually pretty good refresher courses for anyone who’s been driving for a while and the answers to those driver’s license tests are just a hazy memory. Do you know how to eyeball how far ahead the vehicle in front of you should be based on your speed? Know the difference between a DUI and a DWI and how many drinks can impair you for each? Stuff like that is covered in these courses, usually around $35.
