Lazy Drivers: Turn Signals

Q. On my way to work this morning, actually every morning, I can’t help but wonder why drivers fail to use their turn signals. What really got me to write to you is that I spotted two school buses (one making a lane change and the other making a turn at an intersection) failing to use their turn signals. What’s going on here? I’m sure this lazy attitude towards using signals result in accidents. Is there a rule about use of turn signals?

Looking Farther Ahead

Q. Earlier this year our company sent us to a Driving Dynamics Behind The Wheel training day. During the driver safety training, I was amazed at the things that I I learned. I have been driving for many years, but was not aware of some key safety techniques that could help me prevent an accident. (This was my first driver training day, and I really enjoyed it.)

One key to your training that I am struggling with is keeping my eyes up and looking farther ahead; throughout the training day we worked on this technique, but I still find myself focused on the car in front of me and not the “big picture” as the instructor put it.

Any advice for an “old dog trying to learn new tricks”?
