Ninety per cent of all road accidents are caused by incorrect driving and human error. So it follows that one of the best ways of reducing accidents is for all of us to drive better.
This is where Advanced Driving comes in. For an advanced driver is a safe and competent driver with the will and the skill to keep clear of avoidable accidents. Advanced Driving covers the real art of driving, but no one becomes a good driver by chance. Practice is essential and one must be able to adjust driving, in town or country, to the prevailing road, traffic, and weather conditions.
This book is full of expert advice on almost every driving situation, including driving in difficult conditions, and it explains the reasons that lie behind each piece of advice. It also contains a mass of information on many, often overlooked but vitally important, subjects related to driving and road safety generally.
Each aspect is covered in considerable detail including such subjects as smooth driving, how to improve road observation through commentary driving, reverse parking, overtaking, cornering, and skid control. Driving on snow and ice, and in fog and mist, problems on motorways and
with night driving are all comprehensively discussed. There is advice on tyre safety and how to avoid aquaplaning and the correct action to take if a tyre bursts, or a windscreen shatters.
The book has been written to help everyone improve their driving, whether they have been driving for a few months or many years. If you follow the practical advice it will not only enable you to enjoy your driving more - it will also help you to complete each journey in safety.
