    The vast majority of drivers in this island are exceptional.

    We can save many lives by example.

    Regardless of weather you are driving a car ; a scooter; or a motorcycle ; the lives of people and passengers depends on your ability to manage each every situation, by staying on point.

    There is one situation that stands out and can cause disaster, the lack of concentration caused by distraction.

    I am not the only one who is guilty of not being able to concentrate as my teachers would often tell my parents ,I now use that to my advantage . The” what if” theory.

    When driving to avoid many distractions , I narrate my journey and that is the same as staying on point .

    Advanced driving school encourages driver narration by describing and anticipating the chain of events.

    Road conditions; weather conditions; other traffic; rear view mirror ; location of brakes; line of sight through another drivers wind screen; means of escape ; breaking distance 2 second rule; right of way; give way; courtesy to other road users and thousands more.

    You do not own the road ,the people do.
    You may have right of way !
    It is not yours to keep ?
    You could be DEAD right !
