Since the recession took full effect in the UK back in 2008, one thing all drivers quickly noticed was the escalating price of both petrol and diesel. Driving your car has become very expensive for both individuals and businesses alike. However, there are certain advanced driver tips you can adopt to help lower the day-to-day costs of driving.
Many drivers these days seem to be unsure how best to deal with emergency service vehicles running under blue light conditions, particularly at hazards such as red traffic lights, so here is some simple guidance.
With modern vehicles being so well insulated against external sound, distant sirens can be hard to hear. In busy urban areas, consider lowering a window a little so as to greatly increase aural awareness.

Evolving active and passive safety technology in modern vehicles, plus improvements to road engineering are largely to thank for the decrease in fatalities, and so too is advanced driver training; with more and more businesses and organisations investing in advanced driving courses for regular drivers.
Many people have heard the phrase, ‘Only a fool breaks the 2 second rule’, used as a measure of supposedly safe following distance. Laudable as it is to have such a measure, the problem is that the 2 second rule is largely misunderstood and used as ‘one size fits all’ panacea, even by many in the advanced driving industry.
