Is it an accident or a collision?

youngdriversofcanada:

**Statistics show that more than 90% of collisions are caused by driver error. Young Drivers teaches our students how to watch out for other drivers errors – mistakes that often result in collisions that could have been prevented. Thank you Scott Marshall for this great post. If we stop using the word accident when it comes to collisions, maybe it will help make our roads safer.**

DSC00131We’ve grown up hearing how at times words can be hurtful. I’m sure we’ve all said things that we may regret later in life. We’ve also said things that essentially mean very little. I think it’s all about how you take what’s been said. To some people, words mean very little. They’re just words. To other people, they have a meaning; a belief.

In the media we often hear about MVA’s; motor vehicle accidents. Whether it’s a single vehicle only or multiple vehicles involved. The word that is constantly miss-used is ‘accident’. It’s not an accident that a single vehicle crashed into a tree or did a roll over. It was a crash or a collision. The driver made a poor decision. When two or more vehicles crashed it was no accident, it was also a crash or a collision. What’s the difference? Lots.

It’s part of a belief really…

Conversation on Backover Issue in Canada

This is a great video.  There is no clearer explanation of why drivers should back into their driveway.  Backovers are a tragic problem where children are injured or worse in their own driveways.

Please watch and share this information on how a change in habits can help make our roads and families safer.

The little things mean a lot

youngdriversofcanada:

Common sense and respect. Two highly valuable traits that Young Drivers of Canada Director of Training Scott Marshall highlights with his wonderful post about a personal experience he had on the road. Thank you to all drivers, like Scott, whose actions make us and our communities safer. The little things really do go a long way.

IMG-20130503-00303Like many drivers, I do like doing the proper thing, especially while driving near other vehicles. I also teach my students at Young Drivers of Canada to do the same things. It’s always a good idea to know why we’re doing certain things and not just because “I was told to”. I also believe in practicing what I preach. I had a chance to follow that mentality recently when an emergency vehicle was approaching my direction from behind with lights flashing and sirens blaring. Would you know what to do?

I had just pulled out of a gas station on the corner and as I was reaching the intersection the traffic light changed from green to amber so I stopped as I had plenty of time to do so. After I stopped I began hearing the sirens of an ambulance. I started looking around to find where they were coming…

Switching Vehicles – What Drivers Should Know

Going from a sedan to an SUV or vice versa? Whether you are getting behind the wheel of someone else’s car or switching between your own family’s vehicles, these video tips will help make the adjustment a lot easier. Personally, I am the main driver of our minivan. Whether it is going to dance, soccer, piano or work, I am making it happen in my minivan. There is a shift when I am back behind the wheel of our sedan. These are great driving lessons from driving school Young Drivers of Canada to answer what to look for and if anything should change when you drive:

Is there any advice you have for switching between vehicles?
