Introduction: Driver Improvement Class
In this class we will explore the “why” behind accidents and see what the driver could have done to prevent the crash. We will discuss safe driving practices that can be used to prevent the conflicts that arise with careless driving. We will also talk about selective seeing, scanning, and predicting, and how, what you see, how you perceive, and what decisions you make in three seconds of time can affect your life and the lives of others for years to come.
This class is created to encourage Virginians to be safer drivers, by providing, within an eight hour period enough knowledge to create an awareness and understanding of the grave importance of being a law abiding safe driver. This class will fill in some of the gaps in knowledge of traffic laws to encourage better interaction within the Highway Transportation System. Through the use of videos, pictures, graphs, and visual aids, this class will provide the tools necessary to improve the driving skills of citizens required by law to participate in the eight hour safety class, and for those who voluntarily participate, in order to refresh their driving skills.
With different learning levels, ages and amount of experience in the abilities of participants, this curriculum will provide visual aids and written explanation along with thought provoking questions as to the real nature of defensive driving. The review questions at the end of each module will allow for a quick review. Also included are “to consider” thought provoking questions which do not require written answers, but are provided for the student to assimilate the information.
Most anyone can learn to physically drive a car. Mental awareness and training in emergency situations can make a good driver out of a poor one. However, bad habits developed over the years, or aggressive attitudes when driving, need to be overcome in order to improve a poor driver’s safety factors. Students should be provoked to consider the habits that they have developed that are detrimental to their safe driving skills. The driver is the safety factor that makes the difference. This curriculum attempts to present the maximum opportunity for retraining poor driving habits and attitudes.
