Tactical Driving Tips: Take A High Speed Driving Course

If you ever being tailed or in a tactical driving situation here are some things you can do to help yourself out.

Avoid crowds at all costs by driving at a 45 degree angle onto curbs. If you forced to drive through a crowd NEVER try to plow people over you will only get stuck in the crowd and get ambushed. Instead have your doors locked, drive at a slow but constant speed to help move people along that are in front of you.

If people are already on top of your vehicle place one foot on the brake while your other foot on the gas pedal this usually scares off most people and weeds out the crowd. You can then drive slowly out of the crowd and get to safety.

When taking turns accelerate just before the corner, stay close to the inside corner then going into the outside lane.

When being followed quickly turn off onto a side street, drive onto someone’s driveway while immediately shutting off your vehicle and lights then slide down the seat to make your vehicle look unoccupied and part of the neighbourhood.

Own the center of the road to avoid the car getting beside you. If they do brake abruptly so they pass you then reverse and go into the opposite direction.

Being in the center lane also helps you to abruptly turn off into an off ramp at the last moment.

Use these tactics with extreme caution.

Remember you must be completely aware at all times of your surroundings when executing any of these tactics. It is not just about you and the person following you but also of the general public that can be affected by these actions.

Always assess, plan and act and reassess you are completely responsible for any damage caused by these tactics.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
