Driving is not just about handling the steering wheel and going to places you want to be. Just like any other things, driving also requires responsibility. When you’re on the wheels and has all the control, you have full responsibility of all the things that might happen while you’re driving.So before you hold tight to that steering wheel and press that gas up, you should first learn the basics.
Know how to drive
Learning how to drive can be from a Northside driving school or taught by relatives.You should know all the basics of driving. Start from familiarizing the use of steering wheel, signal lights, accelerator, clutch, brakes and shifting gear.When you already know how to use them, it’s now time to learn how to drive. As a starter, you should first start at a very low speed. You also have to learn how to park andhow to drive in intersections. You should also know the difference between driving on the main road and in small and tight streets.
Learn the traffic rules
It is very important to know the traffic rules to avoid getting in troubles. Usually, traffic rules and regulations are included in your driving lessons in Bribie Island. You just have to be familiar with it and comply with it. Traffic violations can be costly depending on the fines of each violation. It can also be the reason for you to lose your driving license and will not be able to get another one(that is for major offense).
Get a driver’s license
Of course, before you drive alone on the streets and the main road, you first have to acquire a driver’s license. Driving without a license is a major offense, so remember that. This license will allow you to freely enjoy driving alone and it is proof that you have met the standards of driving.This also means that you were properly evaluated by your driving assessor and you’re qualified to drive.
Keep in mind that you don’t own the road
You are not alone on the road. There are other drivers too. There are also passengers, commuters,cyclist, and pedestrian. As a driver, you should also need to keep their safety aside from your own. Don’t be reckless and follow the driving speed limit. Follow the traffic lights, stop or go if you must. Also, you need to always check your mirrors. That is their main purpose, to let you check the vehicles, the road, and everything behind you. Use the right warning signals to let the drivers know your next move. This is to promote a safer driving experience.
When someone uses the term ‘learning disability or attention deficit disorder’ in association to a person, it feels like the individual is predestined to fail in their life. However, without the diagnosis, the most of the individuals with learning disabilities (exceptions like high functioning autism and Asperger’s syndrome) are categorized as dumb, weird or unintelligent and few authority figures would not care or understand the child and would make it harder for the child. In turn, this will frustrate the child more and would influence them to act out. Moreover, when someone is constantly facing prejudice, the self fulfilling prophecy will come into play. Therefore, it is important to make sure that when you plan to support or take care of anyone with any kind of disability, it is important to know everything about the disorder but it is also important not to pass any negative stereotypical ideologies to the person because these would influence the progress of the person.
