Do EVERYTHING 1 to 1.5 seconds earlierI jsut got my permit, and everytime I drive I feel like I'm going to kill someone. Do you have any tips for driving on the street?
Yep, IN TRAFFIC.. I don't recall him saying he was uncomfortable twiling the wheel or easing the gas on. He mentioned worrying about killing other people---traffic.the poster said he's not comforable driving in traffic yet. that's because he's not familiar with driving in traffic, his own car,
,what a car is capble of, and most likely has no idea of what being "near the limits" feel like
That's why i said to find a big dirt of gravel parking lot---to hoon around enough he doesn't just smash the brakes on anytime the car does anything---which is what 95% do.and what to do when the car starts to lose control.
doing a few auto crosses, will teach him what a car is capable of, what his car is capable of, what it feels like to be near the limits, and what it feels like to lose control.
No the normal teen testosterone poisoning usually outweighs everything else.If he has all of that, he will feel more comfortable driving around. autcross isn't needed, but neither is feeling comfortable while driving around...
Yes there's an elevated chance that he will get over confident of his own abilities if he autocrosses for a while... but that goes into that judgement category ... if you can't make good decisions on public roads, you don't. I don't think Just adding in confidence to a young driver cuaes them to make bad decisions,
There are powerful cultural forces countering the effects of parenting especially for boys after about 11.all that ground work has allready been put in place by his parents .. probably most of it was what he was taught age 2-10. and then reinforced 11-16 ...
Yes once actually driving becomes muslce memory he can direct his attention outwards..Do EVERYTHING 1 to 1.5 seconds earlier
Go find soem dirt and gravel BIG PARKING LOT and go scoot around. Get comfy..
Like stage rallying you have to make the actual driving be muscle memory so most of your attention can be directed outwards toward all the threats and dangers.
