today was driver performance and safety training. i have learnt more things about a car in one day by that bloke sitting in the passenger seat that i could have on my own in a million years.
driving at a constant steady speed is far FASTER than speeding up and slowing down for corners. as he says “any mug can drive @ 100km’s on a straight stretch of road, but keep consistent @ 60km an hour on a windy road and you’ll get home quicker than anyone”.
they can increase a companies delivery performance just through better driving. they can reduce road accidents, they want to save your life and they want to decrease road accidents.
did you know if you increased the distance between you and the car in front of you by just a fraction… we would reduce car accidents by some crazy amount i forget what it was… but it was impressive.
did you know i can now 4 wheel drive up and down a steep incline AND i can slam on my brakes on a gravel road. and not loose control. whooohoooo
just what i need for city driving. xc
