How do Motor

Vehicle Incidents

happen?

The Startled Driver


• Most serious control problems

occur due to sudden inputs of

steering and/or brakes resulting

from the driver being surprised

• Surprise occurs due to a failure of

the driver to anticipate changes

• Failure to anticipate is normally

caused by incorrect eye placement.

The sooner a driver sees and

decides (skill) the less control input

is required

Kenetic Energy

Velocity


Uses fuel to run the engine and

converts heat energy to

mechanical energy

The more Horse Power the engine

produces the faster the vehicle can

travel considering its weight

In order to stop the vehicle

the mechanical energy has to

be converted back to heat.


What happens

when there is no

opportunity for

the energy to be

dissipated

through the

brakes or tires?

Challenge #5

• Inform yourself

• Change your attitude toward

driving

• Almost all incidents are

preventable take the word

ACCIDENT out of your vocabulary

• Slow Down – Speed Kills

• Drive as an ART not an ACT


• To control a vehicle, rolling contact

between tires and the road surface

must be maintained

• A driver can influence the

movement of a vehicle only three

ways

– Steering

– Accelerating

– Braking

• How a driver inputs steering,

acceleration or braking will

determine whether driving is an

ACT or an ART


ACT vs. ART

• The ACT of driving is relatively

simple and most people can

perform the task unconsciously

• The ART of driving is also

relatively simple, but is

accomplished through the

drivers ability to concentrate on

the task at hand and make

conscious decisions
