The Ultimate Guide To Defensive Driving

According to statistics, 1 in 3 Canadians suffer from road rage every month. And nearly 80 percent of Canadians admit to engaging in road rage behaviour.

Men are more vulnerable to engaging in rash behaviour when behind the wheel, than women, according to the study.

And only 15–20 percent of drivers don’t consider themselves vulnerable to aggressive driving and behaviour.

Road rage is not only problematic; it is also one of the leading causes of death in North America. With thousands of individuals dying because of aggressive behaviour by drivers, more and more institutes are hoping to create awareness about road safety.  

This is where defensive driving comes in. Defensive driving can help combat such behaviours and educate drivers about being cautious on the road.

Plenty of driving instates teach drivers how to drive carefully and some of them include it in the final exams.

At A&J Driving School, we focus on keeping drivers safe by providing an incredible defensive driving course.

What the Course Includes

  • Principles and foundations of defensive driving
  • Online defensive driving course
  • How to prevent and avoid collisions with drivers
  • Preventing accidents while passing and while being passed
  • Avoiding accidents at intersections
  • Preventing a single vehicle collision
  • Sharing the road
  • Case studies and written exams
  • Demonstrations, illustrations, and presentations in class
  • Special techniques to avoid collisions

These are just some of the things that will be included in the course. Other this, you will also be shown how to stay safe during harsh weather conditions, and what you should have in your survival kit in case you’re stuck somewhere or end up in an accident.

While most people are aware of the risks involved with speeding and DUIs, they’re unaware of the intensity of the consequences.

When another driver cuts them off, they are unable to control their anger, and take it out on the car. This is dangerous and can result in the death of an innocent civilian or animal crossing the road.

It’s also important to learn about traffic safety and how to drive safely on the highway. The Alberta Ministry of Transportation offers an array of resources for helping drivers be careful and safe on the road.

A driving school can help you learn to drive safely and give you tips about avoiding and preventing accidents.
