Proper Driving Position – Texas Defensive Driving Online Course

Proper Driving Position – Texas Defensive Driving Online Course

Driver The Proper Driving Position 
You have three vehicles picked out that you are considering. Which one is the right one? Well, it’s different for each one of us. Whichever make or model you choose, just make sure you fit in properly.
 
The most important thing to consider when picking a vehicle is not the color or if it has the 5-spoke alloy wheels, it’s that it fits your body type. We come in all different shapes and sizes.
Some makes and models have more leg room, some more headroom and some less distance to the steering-wheel and control pedals. You wouldn’t wear a suit that is too big or too small for you would you? Then why would drive a car that doesn’t fit you? Yet everyday millions of drivers get in the wrong car for them because it does not fit them. The most important aspect of your vehicle is the ability to position yourself properly so that you can control your vehicle the car in the advent of an emergency or at least get out quickly in case of a different kind of emergency. The most important choice you can make with regards to the vehicle you choose to drive should be the driving position.
 
If you’re not in a driving position that allows you to react quickly and precisely then you are increasing the odds of not being able to drive your way out of a collision and then odds are – you’re going to be in a collision. If you are sitting too close to the steering wheel in a head-on collision, the crash rating of a car may not make much of a difference if the paramedics are pulling the steering wheel out of your chest because your airbag couldn’t open properly. You should be sitting far enough away from the steering wheel so that with both hands on the wheel you have a slight bend at the elbows allowing you to steer with your shoulders. Steer with your hands using your shoulders as the pivot point.
Punchy The Proper Driving Position  
The reason for this is that your steering capabilities are quicker and more precise when you steer using your shoulders. Your shoulders should be relaxed and on the back of the seat with your chest out.
 
Your legs should be directly out in front, with a slight bend at the knee, and with enough room that you can reach the pedals easily. Your knees should not be touching the dash. You need enough leg-room that, should a head-on collision occur and the front end of the vehicle collapses, you have enough space so you can draw your legs back. This will help to keep your knees from being crushed if the dash also collapses during impact. If your feet can’t reach the pedals easily without your chest being to close to the steering wheel then this is not the right vehicle for you.
