Defensive driving

Defensive drivers mitigate traffic collisions and save lives.

Truly, a masterful defensive driver does myriad good deeds during even the best of road conditions.

Hitting the brakes when the car beside drifts into the lane while checking that text message that just popped in . . . making room for cars to merge in at squeeze points . . . Noticing emergency vehicles and creating space for them to pass.

Meanwhile, the offensive drivers carry on like bulls in the China shop . . . most of them with no awareness of the dangerous scenarios they create and/or the havoc they leave in their wakes.

This is true in all things – Relationships, Businesses, crowds of people . . .

Those unheralded folks with defensive manner serve and protect us all from the offensive and careless others.

Their strengths are simple:

  • Focused
  • Single taskers
  • Attentive
  • Aware
  • Peripheral Vision/Perception
  • Sensitive
  • Patient
  • unhurried
  • Thorough

We all have the ability to be either . . . It’s a choice!

Which is your choice?
