5 . YASA.org The Myth of the Experienced Driver! Over 90 percent of crashes are due, at least in part, to driver error;

6 . YASA.org The Myth of the Experienced Driver! Over 90 percent of crashes are due, at least in part, to driver error; Typically, over 90 percent of drivers rate themselves as being either above average, good, or excellent drivers;

7 . YASA.org The Myth of the Experienced Driver! Over 90 percent of crashes are due, at least in part, to driver error; Typically, over 90 percent of drivers rate themselves as being either above average, good, or excellent drivers; Do the math! A supposedly experienced driver is commonly just a complacent driver.

8 . YASA.org Basic Driver Training Training and testing for new drivers goes back at least to the 1930s Unfortunately, a lot of the outdated, inaccurate, inadequate and inappropriate ideas from that time still persist, including: One car-length following distance for each 10 m.p.h. Change down through manual gears if you are stopping Turn into a skid (there are three types of skid!) Brake going into a curve and accelerate out of it

9 Copyright 2012www.yasa.org A World Bank Comment Necessary Standards With road user error contributing to the vast majority of road crashes, the development of safe drivers, skilled in defensive driving techniques, should be the primary objective of any road safety program. Driving examiners in developing countries are rarely given special training and driving tests [are] an inadequate test of ability to drive safely in traffic on real roads. (World Bank – – 31 May, 2007)http://go.worldbank.org/8F5O3LMLN0

10 A World Bank Comment Necessary Standards The World Bank statement is clearly good, but even it raises a crucial question, namely: What exactly are the defensive driving techniques to which it refers?

11 YASA.org Driving for Safety is a Complex Task! Compare Driving with Flying! Which is more technical? Which requires more mandatory training? In which are the instructors more highly qualified?

12 . Driving for Safety is a Complex Task! So, what exactly are Defensive Driving and Advanced Driving

13 . What is Defensive Driving? There is an overlap between Defensive Driving and Advanced Driving. When done properly, in line with global best practice, they may be thought of simply as different levels of the same discipline, but Advanced Driving – when done properly – is much more comprehensive.

14 Copyright 2012www.yasa.org What is Defensive Driving? There is an overlap between Defensive Driving and Advanced Driving. When done properly, in line with global best practice, they may be thought of simply as different levels of the same discipline, but Advanced Driving – when done properly – is much more comprehensive. Defensive Driving could perhaps be defined as the study and application of basic but proven best-practice techniques in safe driving on public roads.
