WAYS TO AVOID ACCIDENTS WHILE DRIVING AS A BEGINNERS





GET FAMILIAR WITH YOUR CAR

The first thing that you should do before you start driving is to get comfortable with your car. Learn what a clutch does, understand the gear arrangements and learn facts like one should never shift to a lower gear at a higher speed and that it's always better to let the car come to a stop before you engage the reverse gear.

CHECK YOUR SEATING POSITION

The right seating position is crucial; even experienced drivers don't position themselves correctly and thus lack comfort and control, which increases the probability of accidents. The seat should be set in a position where you can see all around, very easily and comfortably. Push the brake fully with your right foot and depress the clutch, this should be done in a manner such that while depressing the pedals fully, your knees stay bent at about 120 degrees. Sit upright and don't stoop forward.

AVOID DISTRACTIONS

Avoid distractions while you are driving because nowadays the roads are jam packed and therefore you need to keep your eyes and attention focused towards it for every single second. Once you are in the driver's seat, be attentive, adjust the mirrors, wear your seatbelt and keep the rules of the road in mind. Two most common and basic rules before you start driving; don't use a mobile phone while driving and don't drink and drive. Along with these rules, new drivers especially should avoid eating, turning up the music to a very high volume and indulging in deep conversations

REMEMBER TO USE TURN SIGNALS

Understand the importance of turn signals or indicators. Once you are on the road, you are one among many and therefore, it is very important that you alert the vehicles around you when you are about to turn. Using signals helps save a lot of mishaps on the road.

AVOID OVER SPEEDING

The most common temptation, when one is driving a car, is to speed up. It is very important that you first get familiar with the car before you start speeding.

MAINTAIN A CONSIDERABLE DISTANCE FROM OTHER VEHICLES

One should always maintain a decent distance from the vehicle that is moving in front. You might be a very safe driver and follow all the rules and regulations but that doesn't mean that the others are too. The best way to drive safely is to be a defensive driver rather than an aggressive driver.


KEEP CALM WHILE DRIVING

Don't let your mood influence the way you drive, especially if you are a beginner. A drive in anger shouldn't force you to speed up and a good mood doesn't mean that you have the right to stroll in middle of the road. Be calm and composed at all times
