When Was the Last Time You Took a Safe Driver Course?September 13, 2012 | Category: Unsafe Vehicles | Share
Well, for many of us it was when we were in high school. How long ago was that? Vehicles have changed, roads have changed, and laws have changed. Edgar Dale, the American educationist who developed the Code of Learning shows that after 2 weeks we tend to remember only 50% of what we hear and see, and 10% of what we read. How long ago was it, again, since you've had a "safe driver" course?
We at the Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys P.A., Ft. Myers, FL believe it is very important to refresh driving knowledge.
Fortunately there are several organizations including AARP which offer adult "refresher" driving courses. Along with these courses frequently come reduced insurance rates.
Here are some links to safe driver courses in your area. Chick on them and enroll.
Become a safer driver.
