When it comes to driving, the basics are not just a "sometimes" thing. They play a part in every trip a driver makes, so learning them right is a top priority. Filmed on actual roadways, this engaging video systematically demonstrates low-risk methods of parking, entering traffic, steering, backing up, and turning around. The program's host, a calm and likeable driving instructor, reinforces the techniques while encouraging students to continually practice them. He also addresses a variety of dangerous road conditions and suggests using the Three Seconds Rule to maintain the proper following distance. In addition, he offers tips like coasting before braking and avoiding jackrabbit starts as ways of squeezing the most miles from a tankful of gas.and of avoiding the kinds of collisions that most commonly happen with an inexperienced driver behind the wheel.
