Having a fast reaction time is very important when driving. Sometimes speed is good and can actually prevent an accident when used appropriately.

Another tip for new drivers; 

1. Always use your indicators and make sure they are working!  Slowly drifting into the other lane on the toll road does not mean that a BMW going 220 kmph has the time to see you.  Pick a lane, check your mirrors, check the speed of the cars coming in the lane that you entering, indicate, wait, switch lane quickly, turn off indicator.  PreeDis

2.   Oh and please doan try nothing with a car that even "look" faster than yours.  Stay in you lane until it pass.

3.  If you feeling uncomfortable about the road put on your hazard lights and pull off the road until the other cars are gone.  Remember that even though you have your hazards lights on the people behind you cannot tell which direction you are turn - so no sudden lane changes.

4.  again DRIVE LEFT, PASS RIGHT!

5.  If you car not working right/ over heating, doan drive pon toll until it fix.

6.  Don't stop you car around corners or thing soft shoulders.  Pull off the dam road.

7.  Don't tailgate or drive beside other vehicles unless you in traffic.  If they driving at 80 Kmph and you driving at 75 either slow down to 65 or speed up to 100 so that they can choose a speed.  Yall not going to the bathroom.

Guy in the vid should have been paying fc#kin attention rather than shooting videos ..maybe you should have added that as one of your points; don't drive and shoot your own videos
Anyway, you almosty made some sense until point #7 then it all went to hell .....  WTF?  Why do they need to "choose a speed" if you already said they were doing "80 Kmph" ? [wallbash]

Wondering the same thing. Why should everyone drive at a difference of 15kmph? No need to drive at a different speed to keep a safe distance behind another vehicle in order to not tailgate.

Ok, right.   What's the problem with driving side by side though?  I've driven on 6 lane highways in the states and in heavy traffic you have no choice so what's the problem here?

Stoplight accident prevention tips;

- if you approaching a stoplight and it turns amber, if you press gas after you see the amber then you are going to run the red light and possibly die.
- Don't peel out on a green light. Especially downtown or at 4 way intersections where you cannot see the cars approaching the red.
- always look out for the idiot behind you that is in a hurry and wants to come through behind you on the amber.  It is possible that he will think you are a idiot too.
- do not block the intersection.  Anticipate the light change and stop before you block the intersection.
- do not cut infront of people waiting at the stoplight.  You don't know how much torque they have.
- don't stop too close to the stop light.  there are these lines (sometimes, lol) that indicate where you should stop.
- some stoplights have filter lights/arrows that tell you when you can turn right or left.  when in doubt just wait for the green and put on your hazards. However this doesn't work on big intersections.  better to just drive straight across and turn around.

In a line of traffic on a narrow road and overtaking;

- DO NOT BUNCH UP!  You never know when someone is going to try to over take line and not have anywhere to come back in. 
- DO NOT TEMPT RECKLESS OVER TAKERS!  this is basically the opposite of above but if you on a dangerous road and you know people are going to try to overtake you keep your spacing tight and PUT ON YOUR HAZARDLIGHTS!

- If you can't pass the slow moving vehicle do no block the visibility of the other cars behind you (usually by staying in the middle of the road.)  Move directly behind the slow moving vehicle, keeping your 1 car distance.  Yeah you can't see down the road but you really don't need to if you not planning to pass.

- indicate and look behind you before you pop out and try to press pass a slow vehicle.  You never know, the guy behind you might have the same idea and more torque!
- always look out for the cars behind you that are impatient/faster/reckless
- don't let one of your tires hit the gravel of the soft shoulder in a turn.  always stay straight. break straight.
- if you successfully overtake and there are other cars behind you waiting to do the same thing, use your hazard lights to warn the people behind you who might not be as successful as you.
- if you overtake and the visibility is poor; stay in the oncoming lane so that the other idiots will know that their is on coming traffic.  Use your hazard lights.

- DO NOT LEAD other overtakers.  So you are casually going about your business overtaking a couple cars and you notice 2 other idiots following you thinking that you are the local team leader.  Stop and let them pass.

not to disqualify your pts in totality but....


In a line of traffic on a narrow road and overtaking;

- DO NOT BUNCH UP!  You never know when someone is going to try to over take line and not have anywhere to come back in.   This applies at all times
- DO NOT TEMPT RECKLESS OVER TAKERS!  this is basically the opposite of above but if you on a dangerous road and you know people are going to try to overtake you keep your spacing tight and PUT ON YOUR HAZARDLIGHTS! Why would you keep tight spacing on a dangerous road? You should always keep a safe distance. We use hazard lights in Ja in very weird circumstances. It really is not appropriate in the instance you stated. Its really best used for vehicles not in motion. It can be hard at times to notice when one is braking when the hazard light is on.

- If you can't pass the slow moving vehicle do no block the visibility of the other cars behind you (usually by staying in the middle of the road.)  Move directly behind the slow moving vehicle, keeping your 1 car distance.  Yeah you can't see down the road but you really don't need to if you not planning to pass.

- indicate and look behind you before you pop out and try to press pass a slow vehicle.  You never know, the guy behind you might have the same idea and more torque!

- if you successfully overtake and there are other cars behind you waiting to do the same thing, use your hazard lights to warn the people behind you who might not be as successful as you.
- if you overtake and the visibility is poor; stay in the oncoming lane so that the other idiots will know that their is on coming traffic.  Use your hazard lights. you cant be serious [blackeye]

- DO NOT LEAD other overtakers.  So you are casually going about your business overtaking a couple cars and you notice 2 other idiots following you thinking that you are the local team leader.  Stop and let them pass.

The first 2 points are actually opposing each other.  Sometimes people will take any opportunity given to them to hop a couple cars in traffic.  Its like you tempting them with a carrot on a string by allowing TOO MUCH space in front of you that they think they can hop into.  It really gets bad on certain sections of road - doesn't apply to every road or situation.

Its hard to notice when one is turning as well when the Harzards lights are on.  but if a man hazrads on it doesn't matter whether he breaking or not just avoid him.

I'm definitely sure you guys have been driving for ages more than I have so I am not an expert its all IMHO.   But anyway lets look at some videos you can form your own opinion on how common accidents happen with this setup;

Video 1; 

Tempting a reckless over taker; Two trucks locked in speed with a gap between them.  The truck that is behind seems to be slowly closing the gap - very slowly.  Reckless overtaker in lada approaches at speed doesn't see the speed difference between the 2 vehicles reaches the gap too late - loses traction crashes into 3rd vehilcle.  luckily survives.  first

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUHzC8rTLMk (lada, probably has bad tires and suspension )


Video 2:
2 cars over taking, the slower car in front;  Slower car probably doesn't see faster car behind - maintains speed, completes safe over take.  faster car tries to continue overtake, realizes its impossible, breaks to avoid rear collision in lada - loses traction.

To me it appears as though the truck at back sped up because all of a sudden the gap closed much quicker right b4 the accident
When i'm good i'm good, but when i'm bad i'm even better

Happy New Year 2015.  RIP to those cars that did not make it.   [stretcher]

New Tips;

- look out of people who'll speed up to pass you as you are switching lanes.  Especially bus drivers who notice that you will need to switch lanes in a little bit and speed up to try to pass you before you can switch over.

- People pressing their brakes un-necessarily.  Maybe they have faulty breaks or they are riding them but you are driving at 25 kph why you pressing you breaking?

- Avoid Police cars on duty, driving round town making random stops in the middle of the road looking for criminals.

- Park next to the most expensive car in the parking lot.  Avoid parking next to abused cars.

Here we go again.  things to look out for;

- people who wait until the last minute to over take cars on the toll road.  Driving close behind other cars for no apparent reason, only to suddenly decide to switch lanes without checking mirrors.

- broken down trunks stopped around corners late at night.  There is no real way to avoid one of these

- white tiidas (no offence to the responsible tiida drivers)

New Year.  In parliment they said that speed doesn't cause accidents but they still not gonna raise the speed limit because speeding tickets are a big tax money maker.

Anyway onwards;
-  NEVER speed cross an intersection with people waiting.  Stop light or no stoplight.  You can never tell how long the people are waiting and how frustrated they are.  Doesnt matter who has the right of way.  You'll both get doomed up and the insurance company does not care eitherway.

- the longer they have been waiting at the intersection to merge, the more frustrated they become.  Look out for the ones gripping the steering wheel with both hands or talking on a cellphone or looking both ways on a one way street.  These are the worst kinds.  More than likely they think you are going to stop but can't judge your speed.

- when letting people out of a minor road, make sure to look out of the idiot who is in a rush behind you.  make sure you break check them

Another year, another bunch of accidents.  anyway;

- driving with 4 people in your car is not the same as driving by yourself.  so don't be speeding with extra weight on your shocks/suspension.

- some cars are not made to be driven at high speed.  Do not try to follow the X5 and BMW and EVO/Suby folks that you see flying past you on the highway.  They have 20 airbags, vehicle stability computers, 8 disc brakes, wide tires, and all sorts of assists and road reading magic.  plus I assume are regularly maintained and fairly new.

- changing your engine oil and air filter is not vehicle serving.  get your suspension checked.

That has been my argument for the last 10 years with insurance companies who load certain vehicles by up to 50% because they have a turbo and hence are "high performance".  they need to look at the host of factory installed safety upgrades to these vehicles.   With all the madness on the roads, I cannot tell you how many times I have avoided a serious crash because I'm driving an Evo rather than a Civic or Corolla modified with a 'Type-R' sticker

Do not overtake or pass people on the causeway bridge.  The whole bridge is a blindspot.
