This week, I have learned loads of driving rules from stopping at stop sign to how to use turn signal!
I also got familiar with speed limits, I was pretty slow especially in highways as I was too cautious avoiding car accident. In Saskatchewan, speed limit is 30 km/hr in school zone which I believe is definitely safe particularly for children during school seasons…exceeding this speed limit will bring you $310 to $570 ticket! lets take a look at speeding penalties as per SGI.
I also got surprised by a variety of speed limits in Saskatoon which is maximum 80km/hr in the absence of signs in urban areas for instance. My instructor told me the only barrier for me is stress, and stress can distract drivers easily. Then we had an interesting discussion about women’s driving. According to my instructor’s experience, female’s trainee tend to be drive safe and more concerned about rules and limits, however men drivers are into driving fast. Moreover, I looked up on Google and I figured out some fascinating information:
As per New york times, male drivers of cars and vans had twice the rate of fatal accidents per mile driven which is scary! Isn’t it? Additionally, research has been proved that men are 10% less likely to wear seat belts than women while they see themselves better drivers! So what do you think? Who drive better? Joint me to discuss and let me know your opinions! it will be fun.. I’ll promise 😀
