you cant be the best driver in the workd but yuo cant guarantee that another car driver is not an idiot! you cant stop someone from drink driving or falling asleep at the wheel for example. so i dont think an advanced driving course is a sure guarantee that you will not have an accident!
It would probably be a good idea, but come on, lets not beat someone up for caring in any way. Whether that be about car seats or something different. Even if I don't always agree with people, I do respect them for giving a shit.
AvrilH are you new here? sorry for hijack. and with reference to car seats front faceing seats are not really 100% safe for under 4s as it can cause spinal injury should the car be hit. rear facing are advised til 5 years of age or so it has been stated by the media etc.
I've done an advance ddriving course and although you cannot choose who else is on the road I learnt to judge risk and assess other drivers and how to protect myself from them. It was well worth it and I learned a lot. Arguing that other drivers are idiots is not an excuse. You can learn how to drive safely whatever the conditions around you.
Yanbu-ish. I'm halfway through advanced driving (on a break due to kids) and as someone else has said it teaches drivers to minimise risk, don't get too close to other drivers, keep your distance, good car control etc.
interesting. I think there's a word for it (the way roads are designed and the job title of the designers) but can't think what on earth it is! Probably something obvious like highway planning or something but I'm sure I heard something more complicated...
I also wish that people were sent to traffic school (like they are in the US) to learn how to drive again when they do things like: - turn before indicating - demonstrate no awareness of other road users - insist on sitting in the middle lane of the motorway at all times - veer out of their lane when going round roundabouts - drive in the centre of the road because they have no idea how wide their vehicle is and are scared of hitting parked cars.
