The very first thing you have to do if you plan on getting your driver’s license is getting your permit to drive a car. But, I hear you ask, what happens if you’re around cars a lot? That’s an excellent question and the answer is pretty simple. You get sick of seeing all the cars and trucks and everything else that goes along with being a motorist. I’m sure you’ve had an experience where driving by a school bus, a delivery truck, or a police car has made you extremely ill just by looking at them or listening to their sirens.
I know I have and sometimes it is hard to look away when there are police with lights and other emergency lights displayed all around you. Also, there are probably other things that make you sick as well. To start off, you should get yourself a good haircut. It’s always nice to see new hair and if you have long enough hair already then you can always get a cut.
When you have a cut, it makes you feel better and more relaxed. Also, you should exercise more. Get into shape and don’t forget to stretch before you drive. Stretching helps you prevent stiff joints and makes you feel good about being around so many cars. Besides, it looks better too.
Another tip for your comfort level is to not sit in the seat looking out the window as you drive. You’ll definitely get a workup and all that will do is cause you to have all kinds of feelings ranging from anger to anxiety. If you really need to look out your window, have a passenger seat beside you and ask him or her to do the driving for you while you take a break and just enjoy the view. It’s the law, right?
Being around cars isn’t all bad for your health though, as long as you follow a few simple rules. Try to always look both ways and not to swerve out of your path. If you feel like you’re getting close to another vehicle, back up a bit. Don’t ever put anyone in your blind spot. And try not to make sudden moves as this could potentially cause you to fall and hurt yourself.
When you first start driving and you feel nervous, put your hands on the wheel and tell yourself you’re a good driver. Don’t feel embarrassed about breaking speed limits, and don’t speed through traffic. This is especially important if you are going around cars in the city. Don’t swerve into oncoming traffic or you will be liable to get into an accident and if you are hit, it can be very expensive.
Do remember to stay alert at all times. Look both ways before you turn. Be prepared to take over steering if needed. When you see objects ahead of you, pull into a safe place and stop immediately. Drive your speed limit and be alert. Avoid congested areas at all costs because you’ll have a much better chance of finding your way if you see something there.
Being Around Cars is fun. It’s vital that you don’t take it too seriously. If you want to drive and feel safe behind the wheel, remember to relax and enjoy the ride. Follow all the rules and stay alert and you should have no problem keeping your cool when around cars. Good Luck!
When you have a loved one with a handicap, it’s even more important to exercise caution. If possible, have them drive. You can always take turns driving and you’ll feel a lot safer knowing that there’s somebody there in case you break down or need help. Of course, just remember not to drink and drive. You never know what you might do and if you’re already dehydrated you could lose your balance and tip over backward.
Even though you may feel confident enough around cars to drive on your own, don’t assume that you know everything there is to know. Ask questions and be prepared for answers. You never know when you’ll be involved in an accident, so be ready.
Being Around Cars is a Great Thing. If you ask me, I’d say it’s even more important than driving. In fact, it’s one of life’s great pleasures. Enjoy it, feel the wind in your hair, laugh at the funny signs that people write on the highway, and don’t worry about any of the other stuff – for now, at least. Just focus on the ride and the sight and all that will come of it.
