Facts & Drivers Education in Cranberry Township, PA
Below are some facts about safe driving to better your driver's education in Cranberry Township, PA.
If teenagers are considered to have the best reflexes, or reaction time, of all the age groups, then why are they involved in the highest percentage of automobile crashes?
INEXPERIENCE! That may be the best one-word answer, but there is a lot more to it.
Because of inexperience, the teenager has not been exposed to the variety of unexpected situations that not only MAY occur but DOES occur – on an all too frequent basis. Things such as; motorist suddenly crossing your lane or driving into your lane unexpectantly, drivers never stopping (rolling stops) at stop sign intersections, drivers turning or changing lanes without the use of turn signals, heavy rain or snowy weather conditions that greatly reduces tire contact on the roads, etc., etc., etc.
In order words, they simply haven’t experienced enough driving situations to ANTICIPATE the plethora of things that COULD happen – (Just because it shouldn’t happen, doesn’t mean it won’t happen). Therefore, because the teen doesn’t anticipate, or recognize the potential for something dangerous to develop, they don’t adjust their speed (slow down) and consequently do not have enough time and distance at that speed to avoid an incident from occurring.
