4 Ways to Focus on Bettering Your Driving Ability

Whatever skill level you believe your driving skills are at, there is always room for improvement right? If you are looking to improve your driving and make the roads a little safer, you’ve come to the right place. Before you hop into your Ford Focus and jump onto one of Utah’s highways, consider these four ways to better your driving abilities.

1

Focus

Focus

The first thing you can do to become a better driver is to focus. Pay attention at all times to the traffic around you, check your mirrors often and anticipate what other drivers are going to do. Before you even get into your Ford Focus take care of anything that is going to distract you once you’re driving.

2

Turn Signals

Turn Signals

Use your turn signals at the right time. Notifying other drivers that you are about to navigate your Ford Focus in one direction or the other will prevent accidents and confusion. Whether you drive the streets of Utah or a state with more road names and less of a grid-system, successfully making your way to your destination can be dependent upon the use of your signals.

3

Yellow

Yellow

Yellow lights mean slow down; never try to beat the light. Becoming a better driver means focusing on your safety and the safety of other vehicles before you act. If the light turns yellow and you have enough room to stop safely, then stop. You endanger yourself and others by running yellow lights just to save a minute or two; it’s not worth it.

Space

Space

Give the Utah driver ahead of you at least 2 to 4 seconds distance. No one likes to be “tailed” by someone else and driving too close puts you and the car in front of you in danger of an accident; not to mention rear-ends are almost always deemed the back cars fault.
