Driving Lessons Glasgow Meeting The Challenge Of Producing Safe Drivers

Driving lessons are the preferred way of learning how to drive and to get a driver’s license but it doesn’t necessarily mean that the drivers who passed the tests are capable drivers. One of the main reasons for deaths and physical disabilities is car accidents and evaluations indicate that not all driving schools are giving particular attention to educating the drivers on safety and traffic regulations. Basics and fundamental approach are being given by various driving schools and these topics are only focused in passing the driver’s examination. Even up to now, there are no mandatory rules and regulations from the government that states in what topics to teach students and how to show them but even if this is the truth, it is actually essential to find the right driving school that can make a difference to various students.

Smart Phone Tech Helping Drivers Keep Their Focus

Looking to maximize the functionality of their cutting edge “infotainment” systems without causing undue distractions while behind the wheel, General Motors has announced a new voice-activated technology using Apple’s popular “Siri” voice command system. Set to be introduced in three Chevrolet models in 2014, the system would allow drivers to utilize much of the car’s in-car entertainment system without having to look away from the road, introducing the risk of an accident.

The “Siri”-led system would allow drivers to play music, change radio stations, find travel destinations, and use any other service found within GM’s MyLink entertainment system, as well as access information from their phones like contacts or appointments. It will connect to these new models through a Bluetooth system, and will be accessed through an activation button on the steering wheel, similar to those found in other voice command systems like OnStar.

Parent Taught Drivers Ed Replaced by Professionals

Maybe Father doesn’t know best

Parent taught driver education is not usually what is best for the young teenager looking to earn their driver license, or more importantly than the license, learn how to drive. Natural complications inherent in the parent-teen relationship coupled with a lack of professional driver training education and preparation make this relationship precarious before either person ever gets in the car.

Parents focus on convenience

When it comes to their child’s well-being, parents may know best, but are rarely the best teachers of driver education. Historically, many parents have elected this cumbersome route to drivers ed because of the convenience it provided. They simply did not want to take junior to a driver education school for 32 trips, 16 separate classes, that ate into the family schedule.

But behind the wheel results show this is not what is best for teenagers embarking upon their first experience … Read More

Adult Drivers Ed

First-time drivers, especially teens, present a significant risk on the roadways. Young drivers and those who have never had their driver’s license before have no experience with responding to real-world driving situations and may not fully understand how to adjust their driving to operate their vehicles safely in all types of weather. Because of the risks that come with inexperienced drivers, states in the U.S. typically apply some type of graduated licensing rules, gradually increasing the level of driving privileges that first-time drivers have. Typically, the law also requires teens getting their licenses for the first time to complete a drivers’ education course to help them understand the driving laws and to help them to become safe drivers.

Texas requires this type of teen driver’s education but they also impose an additional requirement as well: adult drivers ed. In the state of Texas, there is a requirement in place that … Read More
