Child car safety seats should be placed in back seat. If not back seat, place in front, but move front seat far away from dashboard Children 12 and under should ride in the back seat of a vehicle
Never place a rear-facing infant safety seat in the front seat of a vehicle that has a passenger airbag. An infant seat should not face forward.
Children 8 years or younger, who weigh less than 80 lbs must be buckled into an approved car or booster seat. Children under 8 but over 80lbs Must be in a rear seat but use a Seat belt at all times
Check these before driving: Reverse lights Brakes – You should be able to stop within 25feet at 20 mph. Do not pump Anti-Lock Brakes!! Brake Lights Headlights The Horn Taillights Tires Turn Signals The Windshield
Check behind and in front of car Make windows are clean, and line of sight is clear Adjust seat to your size Adjust mirrors to reduce blind spots Fasten seatbelts Make sure car is in park, or neutral gear`
Tips: Keep good posture 95% of all information necessary for safe driving is visual information Check blindspots and for less conspicuous vehicles such as bicycles or motorcycles
Keep car in center of lane Keep to right of a two-lane road with oncoming traffic in the other lane
When driving in curve, your vehicle tends to go STRAIGHT. 93 Keep proper grip on wheel and turn accordingly Hands should be at 9 and 3 o’clock.
There is no formula, but is based on several factors: Individual reaction time Weather and road conditions Vehicle weight Brake conditions Condition and type of tires Roadway conditions Speed Never Drink… Never Drink…
Examples from chart on page 24: If you are traveling at 30 mph It will take you 33 feet before you can react To come to a complete stop will be another 55 feet. So, it will be a total of 88 feet minimum to come to a complete stop if you are going at 30 MPH When driving at 60mph, it will take you 300 feet to come to a complete stop.!!!!!! 5 K Difference
Do not violently push or slam on brake!! (cause vehicle to jerk and wears out brakes and tires prematurely) Apply Gentle pressure to the brake and always use RIGHT foot for the brake With Anti-Lock-Brakes, do not pump the brake (It could cause you go to out of control)
Signal 100 feet before a turn Know correct hand signals! Left arm straight out = left turn Left arm pointed up = right turn Left arm pointed down = STOP (Another signal to use is the horn when passing, but not in a residential or business district)
Steering the wheel to the right moves the car to the right Steering the wheel to the left moves the car to the left Place RIGHT hand and arm behind passenger seat when turning!!
When driving in reverse, front of car swings in opposite direction!! Do not depend on mirrors alone!!
