How to maintain a crash avoidance space

Written by Ronak Shah

Maintaining a crash avoidance space is a part of defensive driving. This rule of thumb, also known as three second rule, is maintained by the driver to follow a safe driving distance at any speed, with an appropriate distance between his car and the other car. Parramatta driving school propagates this rule which plays a major role in safety.

But how does one count or determine the three seconds? Well, all you need to do is count three seconds in your head to judge your crash avoidance space. First select an object in front of your vehicle; it could be a lamp post, a tree, or a signboard. When the vehicle ahead of you passes that object, slowly just count one thousand and one, one thousand and two and one thousand and three. However, if you reach the focussed object before completing your count, then you are following too closely. So go a little slow and make sure that there are three seconds between you and the car ahead. This will give you time and distance to tackle any unfortunate problems in the lane ahead of you. Sydney driving lesson teaches this in a practical manner to all its students and thus helps them master low risk driving.

The right way to drive safely on the street

Written by Ronak Shah

While driving through busy streets in Sydney, instead of offensive driving, it is defensive or safe driving which drivers need to practice. There are race tracks and Motorways where you can practice speed driving. Slow driving is also considered to be safer for the environment as it is more economical than aggressive driving. This makes safe driving more suitable for the environment in which we live in. This also protects you and your family from serious accidents. The road traffic authority has set up a few regulations for safe driving, which people need to follow.

While learning your driving lessons from driving schools, people learn enough on road safety and protection. However, as days progress people tend to forget everything which they learnt from these Sydney driving schools. For example, while in driving lessons, people learn a lot on speeding and about speed limitations in a particular place. The trend which we see often among youngsters is that such rules are violated as soon as they get their provisional licence. When then get their P2 or Full licence, things turn out to be worse. The RTA & Roads & Maritime Services have set certain rules regarding driving safely through such high speed roads, which are expected to be followed by drivers throughout Australia.

Some valuable suggestions to avoid road rage

Written by Ronak Shah

Typically road rage, that can be defined as aggressive and violent driving is an accident or occurrence that can be the consequence of the actions of a person driving any vehicle, be it a two or three or four wheeler. Road rage can occur in seconds and in many cases the driver hardly realises that it is occurring. This is something that has become extremely common of late and has taken many lives.

Road rage can be explained with an example like, if you happen to inadvertently cut some other vehicle on the highway, the other driver happens to get cheesed off a starts following you so closely that you either pull aside to let him pass or stop your vehicle. The point here is the angered driver does not pass; he may in fact slow down behind you. If you stop he stops behind you, and if this happens again and again it would be a good idea to the concerned authorities. It would be in your interest never to get out of your vehicle or lower the window, because this is when road rage can begin. The news often reports many instances when people are just shot dead for cutting someone off, turning or changing lanes without giving signaling, and the like.

The chance of causing an accident is very high while tailgating. If the driver in the front chooses to brake, you may not get enough time to hit your brakes before colliding with that vehicle. The instruction given at the driving school is that we should leave at least 3 seconds gap (Crash Avoidance Space or CAS) from the car in front of yours. That means if you are driving at 30 k/ph at 3 seconds gap, your distance on 60 k/ph would be different.
