Defensive Driving in Minnesota
Defensive driving is a method of driving that minimizes the number of driving risks, using more advanced skills than just your basic training. When you employ defensive driving techniques, you become a better, safer, and smarter driver―one who is better prepared for the hazards ahead.
Traffic schools in Minnesota are great places to learn defensive driving methods. Some of the techniques taught in these courses include:
- Slowing your speed when weather and road conditions warrant.
- Leaving enough space and time between you and other vehicles.
- Using proper signals to communicate with other drivers in a timely manner.
- Being aware of blind spots in your vehicle and avoiding driving in the blind spots of others.
These are only a few of the techniques taught to keep you safe on the road. Be sure to check out DMV.org's Minnesota Traffic Schools section for more information about types of schools available in your area.
