DIRECTLY FROM OUR ACTUAL COURSE CURRICULUM
Delaware Defensive Driving, Inc. (“The D Team”) is extremely pleased to present this unique insurance reduction defensive driving course. A course that will take you further into real-life-on-the-road experiences than most, if not all, courses now offered.
One of the major goals of “The D Team” course is to increase the odds for accident free driving. Unclear traffic laws and inconsistent intersection designs that create unpredictable traffic patterns increasing the odds of leading the unsuspecting motorists into a web of destruction will be emphasized. Additionally, “The D Team” course includes a general review of major traffic laws presently regulating the roadways of the State of Delaware.
Unfortunately, driving a motor vehicle contains one of the more unpleasant principles of life — there are no guarantees for collision avoidance. Perhaps after hearing the “The D Team” “Smart- Defense” message and recommending it to your family members and friends, the odds of returning home safely will increase on Delaware roadways.
A GUARANTEE from “The D Team”: Not only will you reduce your automobile insurance by completing this course, but also you will absolutely gain additional knowledge from our “Smart-Defense” curriculum. It doesn’t matter if you are a new driver or if you have been driving for more than fifty years, you will become a SMARTER DRIVER – that is “The D Team” GUARANTEE. However, whether or not you utilize your new gained knowledge to become a SAFER DRIVER is up to you.
THE FORCE IS NOT YOUR FRIEND: “Smart-Defense” by “The D Team” believes all occupants of a motor vehicle in motion should be aware of the consequences of violating “NATURE’S LAW” herein known as “THE FORCE” — an object in motion (HUMAN MISSILE) remains in motion until “THE SECOND CRASH”!
View a real life “SECOND CRASH” scenario — yellow and black arrow in picture #1-2 below. The “FIRST CRASH” occurred when two vehicles collided. The “SECOND CRASH” happened when the unbuckled driver continued in motion and unfortunately smashed into the front windshield.
There is no question THE FORCE is a more formidable opponent than Man’s law (POLICE OFFICER).
Okay, maybe this POLICE OFFICER is formidable, but he does not possess the power of THE FORCE – see picture #1-4 directly below.
PRINCIPLES OF THE FORCE
1. THE FORCE is on every spot, on every road, every second of every day.
2. THE FORCE does not care who you are.
3. THE FORCE does not allow you to plea bargain.
4. Please remember — THE FORCE is not your friend and it will be with you throughout your entire driving experience.
THE POWER OF THE FORCE
Speed – the faster you go the stronger the FORCE.
Angles – the sharper the angle (curves) the stronger the FORCE.
Traction — a slippery road surface will make the FORCE more powerful.
Did you know Delaware has a “move over law”?
The MOVE OVER LAW is recent and not well publicized. It is also not known by many Delaware motorists. Furthermore, out of state drivers who travel through our state are generally not aware of this MOVE OVER law thus creating further safety concerns when an aware driver attempts to comply.
“YOU BE THE JUDGE” – be careful when attempting to comply. The law specifically states: “if possible with due regard to safety and traffic conditions“
SPECIAL TRAFFIC TICKET ALERT: Please remember it is illegal to enter a right-turn lane from the shoulder of the road – see picture #6-11 below.
“The D Team” understands the temptation is high to enter the right-turn lane from the shoulder when traffic in the through lane is backed-up and you can see a clear path to the right-turn lane by using the shoulder. It is even more tempting when you can see in your right side-view mirror a line of illegal motorists about to make your move into the right-turn lane a little less safe. However, it is still illegal. The best advice “The D Team” can offer is the advice from Chapter #3 — “YOU BE THE JUDGE “!
