Professional Driving Techniques for the Professional and Non-Professional
Whether you drive for a living or live to drive, or drive just to get yourself around, safe driving means being aware of situations that cause accidents or injuries and knowing what you can do to avoid or prevent them. This book walks you step-by-step through the intricacies of the driving system – the driver, the vehicle, and the driving environment.
You’ll learn how to keep your vehicle – and its driver – in optimum condition. You’ll also learn how to maintain vehicle control in both everyday and emergency situations in a variety of road and weather conditions.
The text covers the mind-body driving connection, vision and space, vehicle dynamics, maintaining traction, braking skids, power skids, steering and G-forces, curves and cornering at speed, stopping distances, braking control, non-ABS and ABS techniques, turning, passing, what causes accidents and how to deal with them, tips that could save lives, foul weather driving, night driving, and road rage.
