The key to good driving technique is smoothness, and the secret to smoothness is good preparation.
Distractions that divert attention from driving increase your risk of crashing. Recent research suggests that at least 14 per cent of all crashes involve the driver being distracted by something inside or outside the vehicle.
Driving is never risk free, but you should aim to drive ‘low risk’. A low risk driver has good observation, speed management and road positioning skills.
If you are involved in a crash you must stop immediately and give as much help as possible to anyone else involved in the crash. If anyone is injured or killed, you should call the Police and Ambulance – dial 000.
