Over the years I have come to the conclusion that when I operate out there in the world with an expectation of safety, that's what I get.
This is in contrast to how I understood this in my 20's. Back then I believed that nothing would happen to me so I could do anything. So I did some crazy things that really pushed my limits.
Not so anymore. I still believe that I will be totally safe. What is different now is that I align my actions with my expectations. I know what my limits are and no longer need to test them. I drive well within my limits in what I have come to call, 'The Safety Zone'.
Always drive, within your 'safety zone' and
according to weather, road and traffic conditions.
Throughout this site I use these driving tips as the base on which everything else rests. The way I drive aligns with the idea that I am in charge of my overall safety, and the proper care of my vehicle.
