Drive For Your Life
Donald L. Oldham resides in Reading, Pennsylvannia. He has driven over 2 and half million miles as a professional tractor-trailer driver and an over the road bus driver. He has covered 48 of the United States and Canada in his travels.
In 28 years behind the wheel, he has learned a lot of the rights and wrongs from observing drivers in large cities and the open road.
He gathered information for this book from various sources for 2 and half years. If Don can help save even one life, by some of his suggestions, he will have accomplished his goal to keep highways safe for travel.
As I mentioned earlier, the professional driver always leaves an out. An out is always leaving room to get away from any situation that could cause an accident or could result in your own vehicle getting hit from the rear. Try to, at all times, be at least three seconds away from the vehicle in front of you while moving.
If traffic comes to a panic halt, then you will have room to stop and won't hit anyone. If you quickly look in your rear view mirror and see that the person in back of you won't be able to stop in time, shoot off to the shoulder of the road to avoid being ‘rear ended.'
If you are sitting at a light and hear tires squealing behind you and you see that someone is going to hit you, then quick make a right turn, if no one is coming from your left. This action has to be a split second decision but it can be done. Even if you have to go out of your way it is better than getting slammed. Again this is having an ‘out.'
