What is a Good Driver? Really? Cooper Asks
As you approach an intersection what do your eyes do? Are you doing a quick pre intersection scan looking first left, then centre, then right and then back left again?
Do you know why it’s LCRL and not RCLR? Do you know why it’s L before R?
Gently try this scan for a week, and take note: do it for major and minor intersections or just major?
Also, take note of other approaching drivers. How many are scanning before entering the 60% crash zone?
A good driver knows that 60% of collisions occur at intersections, that place where cars come straight into your passenger’s door if they miss that red light bulb! Is it really the light that stops them?
A bad driver looks straight ahead on their green light with no scan nor even one thought of the roadways coming straight into their passenger’s door. Why not look? Well, it’s because they have a red light bulb!
For the next week try and see if you can increase your pre-intersection scans.
Did it change? Improve? Or no effect?
