Watch out for those Driver Distractions

Driver Distraction apply to everyone. You have to minimize the risks.
I made a list below of the typical distractions you may come across on the #goldcoast  

Mobile Phones - Almost everyone has a mobile these days that they carry on them at all times including when driving. While in a call and driving  it increases your risk of a collision x 4. But if your'e silly enough to call or receive a call, then maybe you would text to. Texting in my opinion is 10 times more dangerous than drunk or drug driving because your eyes full attention is on the phone and not on the road. 

Changing a CD, radio station or even a song on your iPod could be deadly. Your focus is on the iPod therefore your eyes are not on the road. Your'e collecting a CD from the Glove-box and for those quick 2 seconds could be your last. Don't Risk It! Before you drive prepare a CD, radio or a playlist so you won't have to be distracted.  

Eating, Drinking and Smoking - Eating a burger while driving, sipping a coffee or a coke, lighting up a cigarette, flicking your ash these are huge risks while driving that increase your chances of crashing dramatically. Like the woman below in the picture - she could easily slip on the steering wheel.    

Don't Let These Distractions become a ADDICTION. Because that's exactly what they will become if you let them happen. Turn off your phone when inside your car. Don't let there be a temptation.

Driver's Fatigue

Are you really tired and still need to make your appointment. Don't risk it. Pull over and survive. Take a rest, drink plenty of water and when you feel revived continue to your destination. Example; if you need to drive for 12 hours, take a break every 2 hours for 10 minutes or every 4 hours take 20 minutes to rest at a fuel station or cafe.

Driving in Bad Weather Conditions

It's best to avoid bad weather conditions. Whether it's raining, foggy or even a storm passing through. You and YOUR driving instructor should realise this. If you caught in a situation of bad weather make sure you turn on your lights and drive slow especially in a fog.

if the situation continues to get worst and worst just pull over in a safe manner and allow the weather to pass but if a storms present it's best to get undercover. Remember not to push too hard on your brakes,  if it's been raining you could slide to far and cause a accident. 

Use caution, drive 5-10km less and don't get distracted. Be safe.
