Defensive Driving

Garwin Beukes - For the next few weeks we'll be running through a few defensive driving topics.

Defensive driving goes beyond just getting your drivers license; it's basically a technique that helps you keep your passengers and yourself alive. It's important to note that the most basic factors can save a life.

A video of a swerving car on a highway in Namibia went viral on social media a few days back, and we realised that it was time to educate the public on how to deal with similar situations.

Edmund Khoaseb, from Windhoek City Police, confirmed that he too saw this video and said that if one such individual was caught in the act, that person would be arrested immediately.

Next week we start with assessing your situation and awareness.

Remember, take it easy on these Namibian roads.

The next life you save might be mine!
