As you first learn to drive, it can be difficult to take it all in. While it’s good to focus on the basics, here are some tips for new drivers that you may have never heard…

Know the Stakes

It’s important to always remember how serious a game driving is. You’ll see people out on the road, and by the way they drive aggressively and without care, you can tell they’ve forgotten the stakes. While obsessing over the risk involved can be paralyzing, you should never forget. Do this and it will be much easier to avoid distractions and aggressive driving.

 

Assume You Are Mostly Invisible

This is advice usually given to motorcyclists but it works just as well if you are driving a car. The point is this: a lot of accidents are caused by people simply not seeing another vehicle. So in those situations, that vehicle was invisible to the offending driver. If you already assume that, you may be able to prevent these kinds of accidents.

 

Know How to Manage Stress

Driving can be stressful. The best way to manage stress on the road is to prevent it. One way to do that is to give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. Another way to prevent stress is to never engage another when they display road rage. You can also try to plan your day to avoid high traffic situations.
