Give yourself and out



Leave space to escape dangerous situations.

Expect the unexpected and plan for escape routes.

Suppose you are the second car in line at a stop light.

Your front bumper is three feet from the car in front of you. You look in your rearview mirror and notice that the local town moron is approaching you at a high speed. He is waving at some girls and doesn't see the red light until it is too late. He slams on his brakes and all you hear is the screeching of his tires followed by a loud and sickening CRUNCH.

Everything suddenly fades to black. The next thing you notice is a fireman trying to take your pulse as the Jaws of Life are ripping apart your car so you can be extracted.

Of course you noticed that the local moron is not hurt and you overhear him telling the police that YOU backed into him. As you slip back into unconsciousness you remembered to GIVE YOURSELF AN OUT.

If only you had left a car and a half length between you and the car in front of you. You could have pulled forward or even out of the way before the impact.


Defensive driving will keep you alert for the unexpected.
