Posit Science Corporation of San Francisco has recently released a program that's designed to help you to be a better driver. It's called DriveSharp and it's helping to get your brain into shape. According to Sharp Brains, the software has been tested for more than 20 years now and has been proven by AAA officials to reduce your risks of a car accident.
Our Los Angeles accident lawyers understand that the Posit Science program has been proven to be so effective that it can cut your risks for a car accident in half. It was originally designed for elderly drivers, but when researchers caught wind of how effective it was they decided to target it toward drivers of all ages.
"The studies show that on average just 10 hours of training will help people drive longer and safer," said Sandra Marsian, AAA vice president of Membership, Marketing and Public Relations. "That's a great result and something we all want."
It's important for drivers of all ages to stay active and to stay up to date. Driving is a privilege, but can turn deadly in the face of deteriorating cognitive or motor skills. It's up to each and every driver to take the responsibility for their own driving habits. While the program was designed for the up and coming Baby Boomer generation, we're urging drivers of all ages to give it a whirl. Drivers of all ages can benefit.
The program, many have said, feels more like you're playing a game. The truth of the matter is that it's serious science and it's designed to work. The Jewel Driver program helps you to better your ability to divide your attention. This will help you to keep an eye on your entire surroundings at busy intersections and areas heavily populated with pedestrian traffic. The Road Tour portion of the program helps you to widen your view behind the wheel. It takes you down a scenic drive down Route 66 and asks you to point out road signs and other vehicles along the way.
The DriveSharp program has been proven through more than 50 studies and has also been published a number of times in the Journal of American Medicine. You can get this program today for less than $150 at www.positscience.com.
Program or not, drivers are asked to keep sharp behind the wheel. You should always be working to be a better driver. Understandably so, we all get a little too relaxed behind the wheel and overlook the risks and the dangers that are lurking out there.
The truth of the matter is that someone is killed in a car accident every 13 minutes on average here in the United States. Many of these fatalities can be prevented with a little bit more attention and awareness behind the wheel. Don't let your guard down!
