Ultimate Driving Craft 2. Day & Night
FACT – There is a greater risk of dying on a rural road!
More deaths occur on rural roads than on urban ones. On rural roads in 2014 there were 980 fatal incidents, 8,175 serious injuries and 36,148 minor injuries; a high percentage of those involved were new and young drivers. There is 58% greater risk of dying on a rural road than on an urban one or on a motorway. Rural roads are generally more winding and often have tight and deceptive bends where good judgement of speed & distance is required together with the skill of reading a bend so the approach speed is not too fast and, the driver has the ability to stop if necessary without drama. We never know what is waiting for us around a blind bend!
I have found that even experienced drivers preparing for an advanced driving test are weak in assessing bends, frequently compressing the system at the approach followed by a hurried gear change, being in the wrong gear or even braking into a bend. Reading a bend is a skill – a skill that needs to be practiced and mastered!
In this double DVD, I will unlock the mysteries of the police method of cornering, explain and demonstrate, in detail, how to read a bend so that the correct approach speed is achieved every time. Guesswork is replaced with a tangible means of assessment resulting in very accurate approach and entry speed without rushing or compressing the system and importantly; so that the driver can stop within the distance seen to be clear.
This is the only DVD I am aware of that fully details how to read a bend, aided by slow-motion and graphics, also, Security advice for women driving alone at night who feel they are being followed.
Some of the other subjects covered are: Night Driving, Overtaking and a Friendly follow.
In addition, there are three chapters of commentary driving using a Honda Jazz, Vauxhall Insignia 2.0d and a BMW 730d auto. These chapters are loaded with information, advice and recommended driving techniques.
Total Double DVD run time: 160 minutes with listed chapters to dip in and out of as required
” I watched your latest DVD last night and I had to drag myself off to bed at 1.45am. Some good learning sections for breaking it down for training purposes; thought the way you describe driving through bends – brilliant”. TC.
