Driver has to “pump” the brakes when this happens.  Vehicles with ABS will automatically pump the brakes when the tires’ traction limits are exceeded. While this will prevent locking the tires and maintains steering control, it will take longer to stop ABS (Ability to Brake & Steer) How we teach it  You drive at a constant speed and apply brakes at a consistent point.  You will use ABS to panic stop

24 It’s not just about Driving. It’s about saving Lives Click to edit Master subtitle style Any Questions?

25 It’s not just about Driving. It’s about saving Lives Click to edit Master subtitle style End of Session Split class & 1st group.. Lets go drive!

26 It’s not just about Driving. It’s about saving Lives Click to edit Master subtitle style Welcome Back! How was that?

27 It’s not just about Driving. It’s about saving Lives Click to edit Master subtitle style Classroom Session 1 Tuning Essential Skills

28  What We Are Teaching... How to correctly handle a vehicle up to, and beyond its limits of traction  Why We Are Teaching It... While handling limits should never be reached on the public roads on purpose, but at times we may accidentally encounter them, in emergency situations.

29 Tuning Essential Skills  How We Teach It… Through a series of exercises that replicate the adverse conditions and circumstances that might be encountered in daily driving By providing the participant with a safe environment in which to learn and practice the proper responses.

30 Driver’s Environment  Connection with your vehicle Seating  Setting Seat position Rear-end back Position to pedals Hand position Seat Belt Keeps you in the seat Always use them Steering  Both hands on the steering wheel at all times. Pull down to turn

31 Driver’s Environment  Prepare your vehicle Respect air bags  Driver Hand placement on steering wheel air bag  Front seat passengers Position relative to dashboard air bags

32 Driver’s Attitude This is the road you drive the most. The ‘familiar road’ by your house.

33 Driver’s Attitude  There Is No Such Thing As A “Familiar Road” Obstacles Happen  Going around the corner could reveal a: Child chasing a ball Animal running loose (steer behind) Bicyclist Slow moving vehicle Blocked road

34 Driver’s Attitude  There Is No Such Thing As A “Familiar Road” Road Conditions may change  The road around the corner could be: A tree falls Wet from recent rain Shaded and covered with ice or snow Covered with gravel or sand from road work, or rain run-off Coated with spilled oil, gas or antifreeze Any of these can put your vehicle at the LIMIT

35 Driver’s Vision The ‘3 & 10 Rule’ At 1 mile per hour a car travels almost 1.5 feet per 60 mph = 88 ft. H.S. basketball court is 84 feet long Look 10 seconds down the road as you drive. (find a stationary object; a sign or overpass and start counting ‘1 1000’, ‘2 1000’, etc.. if you get to ‘ ’ before you get to the object, you aren’t looking far enough down the road) Seeing a problem (tree limb in the road) ½ a second sooner gives you 44 feet to slow, stop and/or swerve. the ‘3’ part will come later..

36 It’s not just about Driving. It’s about saving Lives Click to edit Master subtitle style Vehicle Dynamics Where the Laws of Physics Meet the Art of Driving

37 Tire Contact Patch

38 Grip / Weight Grip is proportional to weight

39 Weight Transfer

40

41 Cornering

42 Tire Cornering Limits Vehicle path is proportional to speed

43 Tire Limits Multi-Tasking of Tires % Braking + % Cornering + % Accelerating = Total demand on tires 100% = Maximum Grip 101% = S l i d i n g T i r e

44 Tire Limits Tires at their limits Hands and feet must work together If we’re using 100% of our tires’ ability trying to stop, we must release some of the brake pressure to provide the tires with steering potential

45 Tire Limits TIRE PRESSURE  HOW TIRE PRESSURE AFFECTS TRACTION. Too low Too high Check ‘em! Tire pressure affected by time and temperature 1 psi loss for every month of driving ±1 psi for every 10°F change in temperature Alum wheels loose air more than steel wheels

46 Tire Limits  Tires can drastically change the dynamics of the vehicle.  Tires are grooved mainly to dissipate heat and water.  The best type of tire for dry road is a slick tire with no grooves. (But… do you only drive on dry roads?) Tread depth test Correct tires for the season … just like shoes.

47 Braking  Following Distance 3 & 10 Rule Follow no closer than 3 seconds, (counting off the same way as the 10 part, just start when the car in front of you crosses the line )  Threshold Braking Brake without locking up the wheels  ABS (Anti-lock Braking System)

48 Braking CHARACTERISTICS of ANTI- LOCK BRAKES  The brake pedal will pulsate when braking hard. Don’t let off the pedal!  The ABS system will not stop you faster on dry ground than a non-ABS car.  ABS gives you the ability to steer around an object while 100%  Remember (Ability to Brake & Steer)

49 Braking  Controlled Stop Used when you have ample stopping distance. Smooth direct pressure on the brake is recommended  Sudden Stop Used when you must stop quickly within a short distance Threshold braking should be used on non-abs cars Hard pedal braking for ABS equipped cars

50 Braking  Avoid Left Foot Braking Increased wear / heat build up Brake fade Brake lights on unnecessarily  Use the ball of your right foot to apply brakes while keeping the heal on the floorboard.  Look around when braking to give yourself an escape route (more on this later)

51 Braking CHARACTERISTICS OF ANTI- LOCK BRAKES  There will be an ABS indicator light on your car if it is equipped with ABS. Be sure the light goes out after starting the car. If the light stays on, ABS is not effective and you should resort back to threshold braking. Then have the car serviced as soon as possible!

52 Braking THRESHOLD BRAKING TECHNIQUE (non ABS)  Maximum brake pressure, minimum stopping distance, with safety & control  Point just prior to lock-up  Too much, wheels lock and tires skid – which means… NO STEERING!  Modulation - slightly releasing the brake pressure Curl toes back at 1st  As wheel begins to turn, reapply pressure  THRESHOLD BRAKING and MODULATION – most efficient technique today

53 Exceeding The Limit Skids

54 Driver’s Principle #1 LOOK WHERE YOU WANT THE CAR TO GO. Not necessarily where the car is headed now. You may need to turn your head and use your side windows. WHY? YOUR EYES TELL YOUR HANDS AND FEET WHAT TO DO (If you look at the tree, you will probably hit the tree) a.k.a. “Target Fixation”

72 It’s not just about Driving. It’s about saving Lives Click to edit Master subtitle style Classroom Session 2 Judgment

73 Requires you to be Situationally Aware … - Your surroundings Traffic around you Interstate driving w/ NO BRAKES! Anticipate others Trucks - Your Car - You!

74 Judgment Requires AWARENESS of…. Conditions Outside … - Visibility (rain, fog, snow, dust, …) - Road Conditions Rain – Lifts oil in road to the surface Pavement Edges – run off; 2 wheels off Temperature – Bridges, valleys, dips in road will freeze first Snow - 4x4’s and AWD will make you go faster but they will not make you turn or stop faster Dust, Dirt & Gravel – From wind, run-off and construction etc..

75 Judgment AWARENESS of…. Conditions of the Vehicle … - Brakes (including parking brake) Hard pedal, no pull, vibration or grinding. Wet brakes require a longer stopping distance - Engine - a stalled car is an obstacle for someone else to hit - Lights - Headlights, brake lights, directionals, instruments - Wipers - Good Blades! Replace Yearly - Windshield Washer - pump working, reservoir full Consider water-dispersing washer fluid / Rain-X - Tires - Good tread, balanced, aligned Check pressures often. Low profile not just visual - Heater & Defrosters - poor function worse than none

76 Judgment AWARENESS of…. Conditions of the DRIVER … - A Few More Things Drugs & Alcohol Kill (you BETTER know this by now) Distractions - largest single cause of accidents 28 percent of all traffic crashes are caused by drivers using cell phones and texting. National Safety Council Study - Cell Phones – Bad as alcohol. “Cognitive Distraction”. “Hands free” is not enough. It’s not just where your hands are, its where your head is! - Texting? – Oh come on!! - Eating - Talking w/ Passengers - Fumbling w/ CD’s, Radios, IPods - Exhaustion - If you think you might fall asleep you WILL fall asleep and you won’t know when until it’s too late. Medications – Warning labels exist for a reason Emotions – Level head required, Road Rage? nobody wins

77 Judgment AWARENESS of…. A few more things - Windows Scrape everything Up or down not ½ way - “Stuff” inside cars - Mirror Placement Eliminate Blind spots

79 Judgment Requires you to be in control of you … Your rights as a passenger 62% of teenage passenger deaths occur in vehicles driven by another teenager. Your rights to just say ‘Whoa’ Tell, don’t ask, your friends to stop dangerous driving behavior. If they don’t stop it, ask to drive or just get out, call a friend or parent to come get you. Don’t let yourself become a statistic!

80 Judgment AWARENESS of…. VISUAL AWARENESS Hopefully we demonstrated the importance of looking forward and ahead (3 &10 remember?) a few other hints. - Look Though The Car in Front of you. - Intersections - Obstructions

93 It’s not just about Driving. It’s about saving Lives Click to edit Master subtitle style Conclusion

94  While You Were Here Today, Nationally: A major crash happened every 9 seconds A traffic fatality happened every 13 minutes More than 36 people died 10 of them were your age

95 Conclusion  Driving Facts of Life Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers. 62% of teenage passenger deaths occur in vehicles driven by another teenager.

96 Conclusion  Driving Facts of Life Seat Belts Do Save Lives  About ⅔ of teens killed in auto accidents were not wearing seat belts  Over ½ of all occupant deaths in accidents were not restrained

97 Conclusion  Driving Facts of Life 62% of all accidents occur in urban areas 60% of all FATAL accidents occur on rural roads  Many rural roads are based on old trails  Two lane roads offer limited run off area and little room for recovery if you drop a wheel off 40% of all FATAL accidents on curves

98 Conclusion  We hope you had fun and learned new skills. If you did, please tell a friend. DON’T TRY TO TEACH YOURSELF ON THE STREETS.  If you want to continue to improve your driving skills, get involved with a car club. We can help you with a list of clubs that host Car Control Schools, High Performance Driving schools and Autocrosses, etc. Volunteer!! It’s a great way to get involved with driving events.
