One of the things about driving is defensive driving. It's somewhat hard to do involuntarily, especially when you're in a rush, and a lot of people don't do it. For example, if you're in the second left lane, you'll turn into the area between the number 2 and 3 lane. It's essentially making a cushion and making room for error. It's the difference between an accident and getting to work on time.

I just tried out mountain driving yesterday, so I thought I'd give some thoughts on it. It's interesting. Some parts you have to go fast and other times slow. It truly is like a roller coaster. A bit tense, but a lot of fun. Especially if you're the only one out there. I highly recommend practicing on one when you have some free time.

A great way to get a lot of driving hours is by driving on the weekends. But where to? If you have some sort of class or appointment on the weekends, driving there is a great way to get a few hours consistently. Also, try looking at advertisements from local stores for good deals. Maybe something you like is on sale or your parents need something from the store. Try driving there. When there's nothing to buy, be sure to check if any gift cards are on sale. There's a great app for this. It's called Flipp. You can get it for free on the Apple App Store [Direct Link] and the Google Play Store [Direct Link]. You can learn more about Flipp on my other blog, Tech Talk 4 Geeks.

Here are some quick tips for driving at night. First, it's important to make sure that you don't drive so fast to the point of not being able to stop in time for something coming in the range of your headlights. It's kinda hard to explain, but hopefully you know what I mean. Speaking of headlights, be sure that yours are tuned up and bright. Also, be sure give other people more space at night as your reactions may be more delayed at night, in addition to lower visibility. I hope these tips help you become a better driver!

Today, I drove in the rain. Here are some of my experiences of driving in the rain. Basically, I found that it's really easy to skid while braking. It's also important not to get caught in a large puddle while at a stoplight. Finally, you should know when to turn on your windshield wipers and what level to put them to. Anyways, those are my experiences in driving in the rain.
