Safe Driving Audio Tips provided by skilled racing driver
Andrew “Fishtail” Fisher.
Most professional race drivers will tell you that they don’t enjoy driving on the roads. Why? Because they know that everyone else around them have little or no idea of what they’re doing or what is going on around them. Racing is done in a controlled environment, with other professional drivers; there is no similarity between driving fast on a racetrack and driving fast on a public road. Speeding on the road is plain and simply stupid.
If someone wants to prove how good a driver they are, then they should go to a racetrack, participate in an open day and test themselves out against their mates and the other drivers attending. This is done in a controlled environment, against a stopwatch and is the safest way to see who is truly fastest.
The most dangerous place to sit in a car is the passenger seat, as natural survival instinct takes control of the driver!
You may not be old enough to drive yet, so you may need to have the courage to tell the driver (may be your brother, sister, cousin, friend or even mum or dad) to SLOW DOWN or even to stop the car so you can get out before it’s too late.
Cars are a lethal weapon.
30% of fatal accidents involve a P-plate driver.
You are 66% most likely to die in a car crash between the ages of 17 and 20! It is your right to have a say .
When someone is driving make sure they don’t:
• Text, check email or surf the web
• Talk on the phone, unless on handsfree
• Get distracted by the passengers
• Have the music blaring
• Speed or ignore traffic signals
And remember if you drink and drive… you’re an IDIOT!
STOP AND THINK
Is it really worth the risk just to impress someone?
Do you really want to hurt the people who care about you?
