					              Learning the Tricks of Driving a car and More

Driving a car is exciting and truly enjoyable. But it is more than just a skill; it is a
responsibility. You have to know the rules and abide by them. Before you get your hand on
driving a car or even learning how to drive a car, you must understand the existing road rules.
You have to be aware that traffic legislation is different in every city, state, and country. To
be sure that you are not going to break any rules, you must study and understand those that are
in effect in your area.

Here are additional safety driving tips:

Tip #1: Familiarize yourself with your car and its equipments. This is advisable, especially if
you are renting a vehicle.

Tip #2: If you are going for a long drive, make sure to have enough sleep beforehand. Better
yet, share driving responsibilities with another person so you get to rest in between.

Tip #3: Plan ahead. Not driving around an inclement weather will save you lots of time and
money. It is also safest to drive when the weather is pleasant.

Tip #4: Always check that your vehicle is in tip-top shape before having a go at it.

Tip #5: Stuff important things that you might need along the way, including snacks, drinks,
pillows, blanket, and a first-aid kit.

Parallel Parking

There are many things to learn and understand when driving a car. One of the most
challenging skills to learn for most people is parallel parking or reverse parking. This is one of
the reversing maneuvers you must learn before having a go at the accelerator. It is a must for
any driver. Here are some parallel parking tips that you might find useful:

Tip #1: Do not be afraid to go forwards a couple of time to get to the right position. It is better
to do that than hit on anything along the way.

Tip #2: Before taking a position in the parking lot, assess the space well. Make sure that the
size of your car will fit into the space available.

Tip #3: Always check the distance between your car and the curb as well as the ones in front
and behind. Your position should not cause inconvenience to the other drivers. It should also
be easy for you to get out of that space.

Tip #4: Keep track of oncoming pedestrians and cars while you are parallel parking.

Tip #5: Take time to practice. That is the secret to managing this particular driving skill, like
everything else.
