And it's not limited to those subjects either. For example, to improve safe
driving in the winter, municipalities could open up an "ice rink" with cones
placed. Then people could pay a reasonable fee to drive the course, even
deliberately placing themselves in "emergency" situations (like going to fast
and trying to stop shorter) to better learn how to handle the
Example: I knew about fishtailing and what to do if you end up
in that situation. However, the first time I found myself in it - the motion
increased till I slid with the right side of the vehicle partially in the ditch.
The next fishtail was much better handled. After that, my skills in handling
that particular vehicle situation became such that within two sways of the
vehicle, the fishtail was corrected.
Would be nice if we could experience
situations like that and learn to correct them before we're placed on the roads
