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. No one knows better how to teach you to be a safe driver, and we’ll be with you every step of the way. Give us a call and set up your first lesson today!

“Share the Road” – MDOT Campaign to See Pedestrians

October 2, 2012 - 7:00 pm

According to the Star Tribune, pedestrian deaths in 2012 are already at a 5 year high in Minnesota. MDot has decided to launch a “Share the Road” campaign to raise awareness to this deadly, but very reversible trend.

Here are some of their major tips:

1.) “Stop for pedestrians at crosswalks.“
2.) “Watch for pedestrians at all times.”
3.) “Avoid distracted and aggressive driving”

At Midway Driving School, we make sure all our behind-the-wheel drivers understand the importance of safety while driving. Students are trained to actively pay attention to the road without distractions.

MDS serves Saint Paul, Minneapolis, Duluth, Rochester areas. We also provide free pick-up for behind-the-wheel lessons. Midway driving school specializes in ESL, Nervous Adult, and Homeschool behind-the-wheel training.
