It’s all about good timing

You’ll never have to hit a 90-mile-per-hour fastball, but you still need to keep those timing skills sharp if you want to be a safe driver. Reliably secure driving is built on experience, a well-maintained vehicle, and roadways that are functionally designed with safety in mind. You, as the driver, bind all those things together with your sense of timing.

Key Takeaways:

  • Drivers have to time their maneuvers in traffic to remain safe. Sometimes our timing doesn’t happen while we’re driving.
  • Each time a driver makes a turn across the path of oncoming traffic they have to time their maneuver.
  • Sometimes timing isn’t very good when you’re driving in poor weather. I often hear about vehicle crashes during an ice storm, snow storm or during a very heavy rain storm.
