For all drivers, new and experienced --
everyone will learn useful information from this book. Ms. Creedon has artfully researched and detailed this fact-filled guide of knowledge about vehicles and safety.
When her daughter became the victim of a "bump and grab," she was compelled to learn more about road dangers and other things that so many drivers don't know -- but need to! Points that are not covered in Driver's Ed, knowledge gained only through years of driving experience, are expertly covered in her easy-reading style.
From the back cover:
How safe are you while driving? Do you know what to do when suspicious situations arise? Do you know basic vehicle trouble signs? The Ride Guide’s wealth of information tells how to be more safety conscious, avoid driving hazards, how to keep your vehicle safe, and so much more!
Learn about important danger signs, how to handle problems and avoid potential safety traps. What do you do when blue lights are flashing behind you? (Perhaps not what you think!) When it is okay to leave the scene of an accident? What is the difference between road rage and aggressive driving?
Do you know about the “Move Over Law” and the “Good Samaritan Law?” When not to use cruise control? How best to talk to a police officer? Proper procedure when you have an accident? What to do if involved in a “bump & grab?” When to call 511?
You will also find information on how to take care of your car, how to avoid getting a ticket, how to buy a used car, how to add oil, how to use jumper cables, the safe way to lead and follow, plus lots of great driving tips.
While new drivers generally have the most current driving knowledge, they don’t know many of the points mentioned, things learned only from years of driving experience. However, drivers of any age and experience level will benefit from this book.
