Even now, just a few weeks into the Covid-19 corona virus assault on the USA, we know that the critical factor in trying to avoid this deadly illness is to avoid contact with other people. But even travelling by car isn’t entirely safe so what can we all do to improve the situation?
In all North American countries the law is literally one-sided: ‘drive on the right.’ But in our corporate ‘defensive’ and ‘advanced’ driver training courses at Advanced Drivers of North America, we are very frequently asked which is safer — driving on the left or the right.
One area of great concern to us at Road Safety USA is the welfare of state troopers and other emergency services personnel at traffic stops and highway incidents. In the interests of full disclosure, the writer of this post is himself a retired traffic patrol police officer.
