Everyone remembers the year they got their license as a turning point in their adolescent life. From that point, there was no more waiting on relatives or older friends to take you where you needed to go because you now had the power in a little rectangular card that said you were legal. When I got my license, I remember my Driver’s Ed teacher telling me that a large percentage of teenage drivers will get into an accident within the first year of receiving their license. "Not me," I thought and went on my merry driving way. Eight months and a crashed front end later, I realized the old dude had been right.

What makes someone a good driver? For starters, one has to be completely aware of the rules and regulations governed by the law. That being said, experience and know-how play a huge part in learning techniques to be a safe driver. Getting behind that wheel and putting these into practice may ultimately save your life which is why we are showcasing an Expert Driving Techniques Infographics created by iMingle Insurance. This image (found in the gallery provided) will provide much of the information needed to stay safe on the roads starting with the four different types of drivers, such as the Novice (Hello teenager!), the Intermediate (Many men would put women in this category), the Expert (Men boost their egos by sliding themselves in here), and the Expert (Think Race Car Driver). After that, this image will deliver information to benefit drivers of any caliber on techniques of a well-prepared driver, anticipating an accident and planning on what to do if an accident occurs, steering techniques, the Roadcraft system, and controlling your vehicle.

It’s a longer read than usual, but it’s absolutely worth the time. Novice drivers may want to start at the beginning and read the whole thing, while Experts can head straight to the tips of controlling your vehicle.

Check back with us soon to find more interesting tidbits as part of our Car Infographics series.
