Advice on Dangerous Driving

In fact, most accidents occur within just fifteen miles of home, most serious accidents involving hospitalization or death also happen near home, and the most likely cause is nearly always some kind of dangerous driving, by either the injured or the other driver.

Most official advice on dangerous driving relates two factors excessive speed and use of alcohol or drugs, which are very often elements that play a part in people being charged with a dangerous driving offence and managing to get themselves into a position of totting up 12 points on their license.

Alcohol related accidents can be avoided by simply not drinking and driving, but of course, that is only half the story because other road users may opt to get drunk and still get behind the wheel. One way of avoiding this is to not drive later in the evening especially in the early hours on Friday and Saturday nights.

Speed is another form of dangerous driving that is easy to cure for yourself by simply slowing down, but again it does not avoid others who choose to drive at excessive speeds. About your only defence against other speeding drivers is to remain constantly alert, checking your rear mirror for cars coming up behind you at a high rate of speed, and being particularly cautious at junctions.

There are many other minor mistakes that we make every day that can easily become dangerous driving situations that could see us totting up 12 points before we know it and then receiving a ban. One simple infraction is simply not leaving sufficient gap between our vehicle and the one in front, especially at speed, in an instant that can result in a serious incident.

Another quick way to a dangerous driving conviction is when not taking proper care when overtaking, especially on fast single lane roads. Not judging the distance and speed of oncoming traffic correctly can easily put you in a position where you are facing an oncoming car with no way to pull back into your own lane. Most driver deaths are head on, driver’s side to driver’s side, collisions that happen under these exact circumstances.

To avoid totting up 12 points on your license, avoid excessive speeds at all times, be prepared to have your details available to avoid being charged with failure to give details. It is always important to take on board proper official advice on dangerous driving, and not work on the assumption that you have been driving for years and know all there is to know, and that is sufficient to avoid a dangerous driving situation.
