  • 1stis heart disease and 2nd is a form of depressionRef: http://www.easts.info/on-line/journal_06/3183.pdfLoss of economic opportunity (measurable)*especially for public transport drivers and those who moonlight as service drivers after workLoss of productivity (measurable) *victim/s can’t go to work on the day of the accident itself or could even extend: get treatment if he/she is the victim, get settlement if third party is affected, get car fixed, transition from driving to public commute. *impacts team headcount and distribution of workload and so on.Damage to property (measurable)*vehicle & collateral damages like houses, etcPain, grief, and suffering (not measurable and therefore depends on the person experiencing it)
  • *Get proper training…or at least be observant - Learn from reputable driving schools (e.g., A1)*Drivingis dynamic and it could greatly vary. Learn from the certified trainers and/or from other drivers (what you miss from dozing off during class could be learned from other good drivers – surprisingly, including jeepney drivers)
  • *Handling. Is it stable? Can it make a quick turn?*Speed and acceleration is essential in overtaking*Test ABS if you can. Ask your dealer during test drives.
  • BLOW BAG (battery, lights, oil, water (radiator), brakes, air (tires), gas)There is also BLOW FATCH (fuel/fluids (steering and braking, etc), accessories (air conditioner, electronics like audio, rear parking assists, etc), tools (early warning devices), cleanliness, horn – in New Delhi one only needs either horn (to honk at cars) and lights
  • DON’T DRIVE when tired, sleepy, or intoxicated. Get enough rest, don’t drink and drive (or know your limits – different person different tolerance to alcohol. Acceptable Body Alcohol Content in most US states is .08MAINTAIN proper distancePractice the 3 seconds ruleIDENTIFY road hazardsScan and plan have an exit plan in cases when: vehicle in front stops someone form an oncoming lane decides to counterflow a wayward pedestrian crossesBE VISIBLE - signal before: making a turn, passing/overtaking - know when to turn on lights- If you can’t see his face, he can’t see you
  • *Did you know that unbuckled passengers can cause death not only to himself but to others as well – they become flying objects (get speed)
  • Pick a static object in front of the vehicle that your are following.When vehicle’s rear reached the selected object, start counting: “Thousand one…thousand two…”Your vehicle should have just reached the static object by “thousand three.” You are close if you have passed it before 3 seconds and you should slow down accordingly.(Note: Faster speed=bigger gap.)
