i hope you reconsider your beliefs in your driving ablility and your ability to predict situations on the road.
i have covered many many miles and im not speaking out my butt, this is experience talking. a lot of it.
ive seen so many accidents that i stopped even looking after a while.
ive seen a lot of crap on the road i dont even want to get into.
your commute to work will be the most dangerous thing you do all week.
please be safe out there.
here are some things to think about that people dont do often enough (again, my opinions; i take no responsibilities).
Was this lesson just for me? or for everyone? It was great, but I don't understand the intent of this. I could've written all of that out (well besides the kicking the tires... I never do that since my indicator works and I know that I'm not supposed to always trust it).
I already do everything that you mentioned (again, aside from kicking tires) already, especially signaling and checking blind spots. The fastest I go is 5mph above the speed limit because I know that anything faster than that can get you pulled over but for the most part, you wont be if you stay within 5mph above the suggested speed limit.
