Pay Special Attention at Intersections!

January 29, 2013 - 10:51 pm

Drivers of all ages should pay special attention at intersections. And a recent study has proved it again. Taking your time to approach the intersection slowly can calm a driver, but it can also mean less accidents.

A recent study reports that bicyclists and drivers are equally to blame for accidents due to not yielding the right-of-way, and “The vast majority of crashes occurred within 50 feet of an intersection.” Minneapolis, has also been voted the “Top Bike-Friendly City” in the US. With bikes and cars sharing the road more and more, everyone needs to take their time and look, follow right-of-way, and show extra caution at the intersections.

Midway Driving School has offered nervous adult behind the wheel driving lessons for more than thirty years.

5 Tips for Nervous Adult Drivers and New Drivers

September 6, 2012 - 6:35 pm

1. Make Sure Your Route Is All Planned Out
Knowing where you are going helps a lot and makes you more confident in your driving abilities. Just one thing less to worry about!

2. Take Breaks!
No one is perfect and on long trips sometimes the driving conditions call for you to pull off to the shoulder or find a gas station. Take breaks when necessary! Maybe you’re tired, stressed, need to stretch your legs, or just need to get some food. Don’t feel bad doing it. Just compose yourself and then go back on the road when you are ready.

3. Remove Distractions
The less things vying for your attention the better your driving will be! General rule, keep your eyes on the road!

  • Eat when your engine is turned off, not while driving.
  • Drive with as few passengers as possible.
  • Put your phone off to the side. No need for texting while driving!

4. Give Cars Extra Space
If you need to drive a little slower, no problem! Make sure you’re in the far right lane and always give other cars ample space. Giving other cars extra space can give you a more time to make decisions and break.

5. Practice Driving with a Trusted Friend
Especially for beginning drivers, make sure to only invite a trusted responsible friend into the vehicle. This person can catch mistakes, help navigate and make you feel at ease.

Midway Driving School strives to make you feel comfortable while driving. You can even schedule an appointment to focus on areas you personally want to work on to be confident on the road.  Make and appointment today with MDS!
