Always drive fast next to cops. They will usually be impressed and give you points on your license. If you collect enough of these points, you can win prizes! Like... a new license.
NZbreedsarerare Prije 20 dana
No no , the older licence are better and those points are bad, they give you points for loosing the race. When ever someone flashes blue and red lights at you they are challenging you to a street race. Those points tell you how many times you lost. The higher the speed the more points you get

Use your brain and take in account other driver's possible stupidity. In other words, you might as well go to a track because on public roads there will always be an idiot around that is too busy watching his cellphone or is completely oblivious to what is happening in any of his mirrors. On public roads a golden rule in your car is: always assume the worst...and don't get mad when it actually turns out to be reality.

@Hartbreak1 If you say motorsport “driving” is safe, then for sure you aren’t a pilot of a sports car and have never been. Surprisingly, the annual number of casualties in car accidents comparing 1980 and 2018 remain pretty much the same...
Hartbreak1 Prije 2 mjeseci
@Lulo Lee if that was impossible we wouldn’t have racing motorsports. Also fast is relative, at the dawn of the car era driving at highway speeds in a car was super unsafe, now it’s a common everyday thing. Safety involves multiple factors and proper driving technique is only one of those (though an important one).

The only tip I can think of, is never brake going into a corner (Or whilst going around it) Always brake in a straight light and carry the speed through it
⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻ Prije godine
If you're a beginner and you just started driving, when driving through S-shaped corners at a decent speed, maintain throttle in between the two corners or you will literally do inertia drift. If this does occur and your car does get tail-happy and you think you wont have enough cornering force to get to the end of the corner safely, turn your steering wheel to the opposite direction in which the corner is going about 3/4 or 1 whole wheel turn and apply more throttle, but don't overdo it. If you overdo it, chances are that you will most likely spin out and have a collision on your hands if you don't know how to control your car using physics. Also, if you are in my local police force, understand that I know drifting is illegal, but if you accidentally initiate a drift and try to recover for *_safety_* purposes, I would say that that should be allowed. I would also highly suggest to practice left foot braking, especially if your car has an FR, MR or RR drivetrain. FF drivetrains are easier to master and with AWD (same as 4WD), you don't have to worry much because the chances are you won't slide at all, because the way to drift in an AWD is to floor the accelerator.

Watched this video so many times, even though i knew about all these things, as i love cars, but when i explained the balance shifting while in a corner if the car is not on load, my friend was like amazed, he never knew about such thing, not that he ever drives fast, but still, i bet there are a lot of people that have no idea about how much weight balance matters while cornering at speeds. Gj with the video, even after so many years :)

Always run a test on the surface before carving corners, run the road/area with a "pacing" lap to get a feel for the speed on straits and through corners before actually driving in a spirited manner.
Anima Prije 2 godina
Definitely too late to be part of the discussion but I’d definitely add practice braking hard and keeping the car under control if you need to drop the anchor, and especially for track days learn to heel and toe to make sure you’re matching your gears properly and reduce weight transfer. I didn’t the first couple of times and ended up spinning like a ballerina.
tudorjason Prije 3 godina
I heard the 9 & 3 position was being taught in driver's ed now a few years ago. I tried it and it just felt odd. It actually felt like I was in less control of the wheel. I think it's because I felt pulling up or down on the wheel was easier to do in this position rather than the older standard of 10 & 2, and unless you're turning, your hands should feel steady. I think 10 & 2 allows you to keep your hands and arms steadier.

Cost and shift your wait depending on the turn. Make sure that if your driving fast around tight turns where your hugging the turns and accelerating in the truns 1 use both lanes and use your turn signal 2 make sure your tires aren't bald or close to it 3 feel the car and the road and think 6 steps ahead of everyone on the road.

100% agree with playing music. I have to turn it down when I’m driving twisty roads or when there’s heavy traffic otherwise, I can’t concentrate on what’s going on. The seat position is also pretty important too and I noticed a big difference in my range of motion and feeling of the road once I sat closer to the wheel and more upright.

Always learn everything there is to know about your car. Be it mechanical or how it drives to the best shifting times. Slowly increase your speed before flooring it to avoid any surprises and ending up hurt or hurting others

Good, sound advice. I would argue that the hand-over-hand technique does have its place. On the open road or track, not so much but when doing some tight slaloms or autocross events, crossing up the arms will prohibit the driver from obtaining all of the steering input the car is capable of providing.

I usually do 225kmph/140mph on the German Autobahn: My Checklist: Speed up only if the road ahead is straight and clear Look out for cars in the other lane ahead of you who might misjudge your speed Practice hard breaking on an open stretch of road with no traffic to do your best when you need this skill the most Get comfortable with the car for a few days or months before testing its limits Only do such speeds in Germany in no speed limit zone or a race track. Nowhere else!

Practice learning the width of your car on the near side, I did this by brushing the mirror along over hanging weeds / bushes in the lanes near by(might want to duck tape it or something if the paint etc is important, once you understand the width of the car to the point it's second nature you can really improve cornering, I've raced a lot of BMWs and jags in the lanes over the years and not knowing the width of the car means I've kept up with them in much much lesser cars the worst one being an E46 touring vs my then smart forfour and he couldn't lose me because he just couldn't corner to save his life. Another one would be practice in the snow, as in, if it snows specifically go out at midnight with a mate and play about in it drifting / handbrake turns etc, if you do that for a couple of weeks while it snows you will have such a better understanding of how a car behaves when it's behaving badly to the point you see an exaggerated result of bad cornering technique that any other road conditions seem tame after that. I'd recommend doing it in shit box though, I buckled two wheels my first time :)

Stay calm when you get caught behind slower moving traffic. If you get angry with them for being slow I've found it moves your concentration away from driving. This means you make mistakes which could lead to an accident. But, and most importantly it takes the fun out of driving.

Probably Not A Chicken they’re not trying to get you to speed up dumbass, they’re trying to get you to move the fuck over and let them pass. Amazing that people don’t understand the concept of not holding up traffic behind you. Either you’re passing, staying with traffic, or you’re holding up traffic. Stay the fuck out of the left lane if you’re not passing anyone.

I live in PR, it's like Florida but inferior in roads and drivers, and pretty much everything else. The "inspections" are also the same, and the drivers license test here is a joke, lol. Here, in a 5 lane road, one lane randomly speeds up and then significantly slows down when a guy who just merged into the right most lane, suddenly swerves across all 5 lanes to dive into the left exit. The road design is just as much to blame as the careless drivers. Other times it's just mergers who just dive in front of somebody while driving slow forcing them to brake hard.
Speeder84XL Prije 4 godina
Ok yeah. I have heard/read a lot that people say "undertake" when passing on the "wrong" side. But it seems more logic that it means to move over, to let faster drivers pass. Du you live in US? Because the drivers there is the worst I have seen - like 5 lanes in each direction and the one furthest to the left is going the same (slow) speed as the one furthest top the right.
Sioax Aeriken
Sioax Aeriken Prije 4 godina
Don't you mean you use the slow lane to *overtake* them? Undertake is the opposite, it's to move over to let a faster driver by, I do for speeders, it's safer that way. Where I live, if you wanna pass, you have to swerve from left lane to right lane and cut everyone off, lol, it's the only way due to the stupid drivers...

Actually looking far ahead is a really good and vital tip as it forces your muscles in your eyes to focus on further objects which in turn makes your peripheral vision do the rest and it is much better to gauge direction etc. I fly small airplanes (can't drive yet) and during landing we must raise the nose slowly to arrest the descent and also bleed off airspeed, called the roundout to flare. Every time we do it our eyes must be at the far end of the runway for the same reason. Suggestions to new drivers as a pilot: 1. Do not underestimate fatigue, so many accidents have been pointed to fatigue as it increases reaction time, makes decision making worse and actually make distant and close up vision much worse as well. At night your fatigued eyes adjust at a slower rate therefore you wouldn't have the optimal night vision. 2. Use the IM SAFE acronym pilots embraced for many decades as the best self evaluation checklist before flight (or in this case before driving). I - Illness M - Medication S - Stress A - Alcohol F - Fatigue E - Eating and drinking I am serious on the eating and drinking part, proper nourishment will increase your general performance a lot! If you can't tick off every item then DON'T DRIVE! 3. Study basic risk management/threat and error management. Simply put, weigh risks vs gain. Such as the risk of driving home after having a few drinks is you would probably get pulled over, run into something due to poor reaction time or have a fatal accident due to a combination of human factors. This will cause unnecessary grief and potential injury or loss of life. Weigh those risks and consequences up with the potential gain and make an informed decision. 4. Religiously follow routines. Always do things the same way it's been done, this increases standardisation and therefore decreases the chances of making a mistake. 5. Check... And check again! Checking, double checking and triple checking a safety vital item is normal practice in aviation, and is what made flying so safe. Perhaps drivers can learn from this too?

2:48 Look where you want to go I am mountain bike so sometimes to practice balance and control will take our hands off the handlebars but this can also help with driving Next time you’re on your bike take your hands off the Handlebars and go around corners with your hands off the bars and this will help with balance which will help with the maneuverability of the car because you’ll get used to swinging it through corners but it also help you with looking where you want to go because the real trick of doing this is looking as far ahead as you can to make it around the turn so if you want to know if you’re doing it right just trie the bike track

TrainingMacro Prije godine
Learning to drive fast (without crashing your car) is learning how to drive well. Everything you can do/use at a faster speed you can do/use at a slower speed but not the other way around. Fast driving imposes the most restrictions on a driver and requires the best habits out of a driver because if he/she fails to uphold the level of discipline required, he/she will crash. Driving fast also demands the driver predicts the road better than when driving at slower speeds. So again, learning to drive fast is learning how to drive well. Learning how to drive fast isn't about aiming to drive a certain speed though. Learning to drive fast is learning to do the above things successfully and have your speed match the situation according to how you predicted it. As such, speed comes (and I can't emphasize this enough) NATURALLY, you can start off barely hitting the speedlimit during your lessons and end up going well beyond that as you get better at driving. This is why speedlimits are a load of hogwash and not a good measure whether someone is competent at driving in any way. To be clear, I don't think anyone should be driving too fast. But you can't tie an absolute number to this. Numbers are a man-made construct ( :D ) and have no bearing on reality itself. You can however easily determine if someone is driving too fast for his abilities: you will see his responses are slow, incorrect or even non-existant; you can see him driving at speeds that the car can't brake out off in time should something happen depending on what is near... however most of the time people don't actually show these features when they get clocked on a camera or pulled over by the rolling taxation service.

@Mr J i had my driving exam a year ago (germany) and i was never told to feed the wheel. Crossing my arms was the right way. I was allowed to slip my wheel through my hand at the end of a corner too

I mean, did your driving instructor told you to do trail breaking???? i think it's a pretty advance or begin to advance stuff. I ask all my friends and family and they have no idea what it is.

@panvlk im not sure tbh, i passed my driving test about 2 years ago in the UK, and i was never told about "feeding the wheel" pretty much the technique used in this video is what i was taught, either that, or I had one hand on at the 3 oclock position and one at the 7/8 oclock position, just resting it on the wheel basically, had the same hand position on my test as well, didnt even get a minor for it, my instructor said it didnt matter where my hands were, as long as i kept two hands on the wheel, and went straight back to the wheel between gear shifts.

That bit about picking the right time and place is key. In North Georgia (the US state) there are tons of fun mountain roads. If you try to drive on a weekend, you're gonna be on someone's bumper the whole time as they clinch in fear on the swervy s-curves and drive more slowly than is probably necessary. Go mid-day on a wednesday, though... it's like your own private race track. It was just me and the motorcyclists and a couple of bicyclists (be nice and slow down on approach and pass generously; they should get to enjoy these roads, too). Really, this is all excellent advice. Just the basics, but the most necessary information for having fun and staying safe.

For driving in generall, everyone should self criticize their mistakes so that they are less likely to make the same mistake again. Also, never tailgate, because it just forces the person Infront to slow down.

Keep an eye on your tire pressures, especially the ratio between front and rear. Adjust it as needed if the car starts acting funny. As you drive longer and more aggressively the tire pressures will start going up and if they get too high you won't be able to turn the car. With my 2016 mustang I like to keep the fronts 1-2psi lower than the rear. It doesn't sound like much but on a whindy road it makes a huge difference to the cornering balance of the car. Kills all the understeer.

Check your tire temperature and grip. If you just started the car and going down a road; let the tires to warm up before you pedal it. You can feel the tire temperature by braking hard. If your car is sliding when breaking hard than your tires are not up to the temperature(or its a shitbox), give it a few minutes you will see the traction improves marginally.

9 to 3 is optimal, minimal is 10 to 2 depending on the bend.

Tim Kreukels Same here. Leaving work last Wednesday before Thanksgiving, I let my RX8 warm up but not the tires. Took off and punched it in second on a left turn. Then proceeded to go almost completely sideways one way and then the other before I reeled her back in. I learned a valuable lesson that day; don't mess around on cold tires especially with RWD 😬

Remember that other drivers are going slower or even be stopped due to break down etc. It might be fun to blast through corners but what is not fun is finding out someone's car has broken down behind a blind corner and now you have the option to either rear end the car on the side of the road or go to the other lane. Hmm other lane sounds good! * gets hit by truck *

I agree with the general advise but, "never coast"? Naw, son. You have to, and should, at times, coast to as fast as you can. Depending on the turn, it's a must to be fast. If you are smooth with the controls in and out of the coast, no issues.

My fast driving tip: don't do it in the city. bonus tip: assume 90% of the other people on the road are complete idiots and thus drive defensively. That means alot of people in fast cars are idiots and I myself have seen proof of that.

Tips to drive fast? Ask yourself these three questions: - Is the road smooth? - Is the road straight? - Is the road empty within the next mile? If the answer is "no" to any of those, don't drive fast.

Not sure about "always be on the brake or accelerator", nothing wrong with a neutral throttle if you know what the weight transfer is doing - better advice would be, "be aware of weight transfer and how it affects front or rear end grip". Not all cars react the same! :)

I don't drive excessively fast on public roads. I am very careful, and I have owned some very fast cars. I like the feel of the power and the handling when simply driving them. I may tend to accelerate a bit hard at times, but I am careful to not go to far over the limit. In a 50km zone I may get close to 60km and then lax off back down to about 50km. I try to drive at times of the day when traffic is light. Too many aggressive drivers who like to tailgate, run the stop signs and lights, cut across the road without signalling, straddling the lanes, making an illegal U turn on a divided road, and cut off other drivers. When taking a 30 minute drive to go somewhere I very often see at least 5 dangerous violations each trip. I have seen some very stupid accidents on the road. More than 95% of the accidents that happen could have been very easily avoided. I have no trust in the other drivers around me. I always suspect the other driver may cut me off, or run the light, or not yield right of way, or cut in to my lane without warning. I watch for this type of thing constantly. -- A man got stopped by the cops for speeding. The cop told the man he's getting a ticket for driving too fast. The man asked how much is the ticket and where do I pay it. The cop told the man the ticket is $250 and he can pay it at the bank. The cop told him he also gets 4 points with this ticket. The man asked what does he do with the points. The cop told him when he gets 16 points he can buy a bicycle! :-)

The avoid coasting part was very useful. Honestly, I never tougth of that earlier.
voongnz Prije 3 mjeseci
This is actually wrong. There are many instances where coasting is useful. On the track it's not only useful for fuel saving, but take that away. On the street and track there are many constant radius corners/sweepers and either braking or accelerating isn't right for maximum grip. What you need in this case is a constant speed with maybe a tiny bit of throttle to offset engine braking. Just look at real telemetry or sim racer throttle and braking inputs. Every corner, every situation is different. It's to wrong to say you should either be accelerating or braking and to avoid coasting.

NamelessTech812 Prije 11 mjeseci
Looking where you want to go is the best tip for riding anything literally. Some might hate me but I am a cyclist. When I started cycling i always looked on straight ahead and always had to full brake to make a sharp turn, now since I started looking ahead I do not even need to brake, because my brain steers the bike itself and it works like magic. You should try it for anything you ride.

Learn the limits of your car. When does understeer occur, when do the brakes lock up, when does the rear end break lose in a FWD and RWD car. Learn how weight shifting while and after heavy braking and when encountering bumps works in car.

With the advancements in automotive technology it is bull$hit the speed limits are so low in America. Active suspensions, antilock brakes, stability control and tire compounds are a few of them that makes cars safer at higher speeds. It would help if law enforcement tried to balance the tickets they give speeders to the tickets they have out to traffic impeeders.
