Driving is an art mastered overtime through experience and hardwork. When you begin to drive professionally,then you will understand better. And there are ways if such art is wrongly applied, will result to fatality or death.
So today we are going to learn how not to abuse that art by sticking to the rules.
Rule number :


1. Never overtake at a bend. It is the surest way to get involved in a head on collision. No matter how expert you think you are,you will only have about 2 seconds to respond to the shock of seeing a vehicle right before you. So don't!


2.Always underestimate the driver in front of you and the driver behind you,that way you will respond better to their mistakes if any.And if non,thank God!


3.Have accurate knowledge of your cars acceleration and braking power. It helps you overtake swiftly and let's you know from where to begin applying your brakes when necessary. Such knowledge is very important.



4.To be a professional driver you must be a very fast thinker and sharp initiator. Several situations which have caused fatal accidents presented options to the driver involved and he must choose one.But choosing the wrong option results in an accident. So be alert!



5.Never take alcohol or any such stimulants cause they reduce your alertness a great deal. Alcohol and stimulants relax the body and reduces concentration.




6.Playing loud music isn't wise because you don't hear what's going on in and around your car. And we know this is very necessary for a smooth journey,so please reduce the sound of that music and save a life.




7.Always indicate the direction you want to go with your trafficators and do so on time to warn the driver behind you and the driver on the other side of the intersection.



8. Make any conversation brief. As conversations while driving hinders concentration. So stop the Chit chat unless you are just on cruise mode.




9.View your dash board indicators every five minutes and view your mirrors as often as possible. View attentively while driving for any mechanical or technical faults as this helps salvage a situation which can lead to engine knock or an accident due to faulty brakes.




10. Never overspeed, and stop praising your driving skill as a driver because many have gone this way.

This is very correct. This has happened to me a lot of times. Some cars and motorbikes still overtake even though, i have indicated i want to manoeuvre to the left.

I also wonder why these young and new drivers over speed. It's funny how they try to prove to their friends that they're good by over speeding. One little issue, then they can't control it.

Some keke drivers do not even notice the trafficator or indicator lights. Ditto for some vehicle drivers. It is advisable to look at the side mirror before turning a bend even when the indicator light is on. Naija drivers sha!
