My daughter got her driver’s license recently.
As I was teaching her, I was reminded to pass on to you a driving tip for your teen. This tip could save their life someday.
As a former policeman, I can’t tell you how many accident reports I’ve taken where drivers never saw the car they pulled out in front of.
That’s why I taught my kids, long before they could drive, about the physical blind-spot in the human periphery.
These accident victims really did not see the car that hit them. When looking both ways; only once or even twice before pulling out, it’s possible that a car can be coming our way and because of this blind spot we truly don’t see it.
So, look both ways three times and train your kids to do the same.
