How to become a better driver? Even the most experienced drivers don’t always know all the subtleties or nuances that can make driving easier. And most of them are convinced that if they know all the rules of the road, they’ll be ready for any situation that may occur. However, besides these rules, there are others that are no less important. And if you don't follow them, you may get seriously hurt even in a minor accident!

Do you know how to figure out if your vehicle’s brake pipes are in good condition? Or why you shouldn't lift your whole foot off the floor when you switch from one pedal to another? Or how to wear your seat belt properly? Well, these things are really worth knowing!

SUMMARY:
- When you're in the driver's seat, your knees should be slightly bent. If you feel that you need to stretch your leg to reach the gas pedal, move your seat forward.
- Your seat should be positioned in such a way that your hips are at the same level as your knees. If you can't clearly see out of all the windows or through the windshield, raise your seat.
- The backrest should be reclined at about a 100-degree angle. This is the most comfortable position for your body.
- The best way to hold the steering wheel is at 9 and 3. You know, this is when you imagine that your steering wheel is the face of a clock. Put your left hand where the 9 would be on the clock, and your right hand goes on the 3.
- You should constantly keep an eye on the state of your brake pipes and brake pads. Even the tiniest crack on a brake hose can result in an accident because you won’t be able to stop the car.
- To figure out if your vehicle’s brake pipes are in good condition, touch them. If they’re hard and crack when you try to bend them, they need replacing.
- You should also remember that your foot typically stays on the heel when you position it over the accelerator. But when you move it over to the brake pedal, your heel may not be able to touch the floor.
- The top strap should cross your chest and collarbone, and the lower strap should go across your hips. Do NOT place it over your belly.
- If your car’s seat belts aren’t adjustable, you can always slide the seat further up or back. If nothing helps, get a padded belt cover.

      Same but if you are cruising at a certain speed you can stay with two hands until you need to shift.

      First, you drive with aim to not get into accident. Also, the number 3 thing does not work for me. Sure, they thought me at school to not lift foot and it worked on car that I had lessons. However, on my own car, I just cannot move that much foot without hitting the break pedal on the right side, hence I lift the foot.

      Some very good general input, which applies broadly. One thing that I wanted to note, is that for performance driving, many of us use one foot on the brake and one on the gas (as Sammy once said)— especially F-1 and related shifters, since it allows you to better and more fluidly place the car’s CG vis-a-vis the rear end. I have raced a wide range of cars, both amateur and semi-professionally, and can say that driving at the limits changes certain assumptions.

      Great advice, but also, don’t neglect to do a shoulder check before pulling off. Your mirrors don’t cover the blind spots of your vehicle. Also, as another user pointed out, wear proper shoes when driving. Flip flops can easily make you loose control of the pedals.

      Rick Klein In reply to SavageChick166

      Here in the US it has been advised to drive at 9 and 3. 2 reasons. 1. better car control. 2. To avoid lower arm injuries if the airbag deploys. As a professional driving instructor we have been teaching this for several years. Plus as a long time race car (small formula cars, I use this method readily for optimum car control.) We were all taught early on that the 10 and 2 method was the proper way to grip a wheel but that has changed and you can use what ever method suits you so all is good.

      Incorrect. Because of the addition of airbags the "old school" method of 10 and 2 is being discouraged. I teach 9 and 3. And being a race car driver I can tell you that 9 and 3 works much better for car control.

      Speaking from experience. My husband wore flip flops and drove once and it came loose and got stuck under the accelerator and he accidentally hit accelarator instead of the breaks. We almost hit somebody.
