Why texting and driving is considered to be negligent and reckless

One of the major reasons for car accidents is when certain activities distract a driver while driving. After having my car crash, 5 years ago now, I am really conscious about people driving.

What are the most annoying things to drivers? #UKDrivingDistractions

It’s quite funny, I consider myself to be a good driver and not easily distracted. But there are things that can be a distraction. Namely things I have noticed since the children have been born – tiredness is a huge distraction and dangerous. When I am tired I have to open the windows to get fresh air and put something on the radio I can sing along too. Needless to say I have only had to do that once or twice, it's not fun for us drivers.

What to look for when hiring a traffic ticket lawyer

A single traffic violation can result in a fine worth several hundred pounds as well as points on your driving record. Too many points can lead to a suspension of your driver’s license. Therefore, it is critical to avoid all these punishments if possible by hiring an attorney for driver’s license suspension. There are many traffic ticket lawyers throughout Southern California, and these are the qualities to look for in the one you hire. Deciding on the right lawyer is something you should definitely take your time over, making sure you prevent the opportunity to be in violation of any driving laws is something to keep on top of too.

You will probably use more motor oil in the summer than in the winter, for example. In addition, the car battery may suffer if you use the air-conditioning for longer periods than you would at other times of the year. VIEW the POST

What I learnt on the speed awareness course

What I learnt on the speed awareness course

On Thursday evening I attended my first, and hopefully last, speed awareness course. I was completely gob-smacked at how little I knew about the roads, signs and hazards around me. I have always been a careful driver, ironically Hubby says I drive like a granny... after doing this course I will be even more aware of the environment around me and drive more carefully.

Is it really a good idea to teach your child to drive?

As a parent, you may wonder if you should be involved in teaching your child how to drive, or if you should leave it all up to a qualified and registered driving instructor. A good approach to take is one that combines the best of both worlds. You can certainly be a part of your child’s learning experience, but you also should not ignore the positive impact and extra knowledge that a driving teacher can impart upon your student driver. Thankfully I do not have to worry about this for a good few years to come, but it is still something I want to be prepared for.
