Technology Over-reliance: Don’t Forget, the Driver Must Be in Control
If advanced-driver-assist system (ADAS) technologies are installed on all vehicles, it can...
The cornerstone of Driving Dynamics’ advanced defensive driving methodology, the One Second Advantage™, is rooted in research that determined that 90 percent of all traffic crashes can be avoided if a driver has just one more second to react and knows what to do with it by Looking Steering, Braking.
These proven research-based techniques coupled with the SEE strategy—Search, Evaluate, Execute, provides drivers with a critical response time advantage. Our proprietary safety system makes the difference between a collision and a safe outcome. Students complete courses with an enlightened attitude toward safety, learn how old driving habits may be increasing risk levels, and benefit from improved and newly acquired advanced safe driving abilities.
It has been a tremendous pleasure working with you over the years! I have learned so much from each of you and truly value the trust we built and the accomplishments we have shared! The roots of the BMS safety program’s success lies with both of you. Beginning with the implementation of a comprehensive program in 2005/06 and continuing with the steadfast behind the wheel training. Thank you! I hope we may stay in touch. Best Regards.
I was driving on I-4 in downtown Orlando heading to Daytona to work Storm. I was in the left lane only because my GPS was telling me that my exit was going to be to the left. It was raining hard at that point and I was keeping a safe speed under the speed limit when I noticed a tractor-trailer coming up fast behind me. I changed lanes into the middle lane and I started to slide to the right due to the concrete roadway. I let off the pedal and looked and steered in the direction of the roadway I wanted to follow. The truck flew by me at a high rate of speed and I was able to control the car. Thank you for sending me to the Driving Dynamics class so I knew what to do in that situation.
Good timing for the refresher training. There was a 4 car pile-up in front of me yesterday but I avoided it. ABS works as does looking further ahead than just the car in front. I saw that the 1st car was going to rear-end the car in front of it and I stopped with plenty of room. It's great that the training makes us engage the ABS many times because it was a non-surprise when I actually needed to use it.
