Celtic Driver Training Eco Efficient Course
Eco driving can save you money in reduced fuel bills and vehicle servicing. Techniques are easy to learn and when put into practice are effective.
The benefits of eco efficient driving are attractive. It is a training investment which has the potential of repaying itself many times over.
However, there is even more good news! The reality is that eco efficient driving and risk management go hand in hand. For example, drivers who are aggressive, accelerate and brake harshly are not eco efficient. Drivers who follow so closely to vehicles that they are constantly braking to avoid running into the car in front are not eco efficient. Drivers who constantly have to react to what is happening because they fail to anticipate risks are not eco efficient. They are also at greater risk of being involved in an accident.
However, by developing observational skills, anticipating what may happen and planning we move from being reactive to a proactive drivers. Proactive drivers come off the gas to slow, make rolling starts rather than standing starts, maintain a safe following distance and use acceleration sense. These are defensive driving techniques which are also eco efficient. It is a win win situation.
Driver behaviours such as aggression and impatience are associated with driving styles which are not eco efficient. It therefore makes sense to address these behaviours which will in turn help to improve fuel efficiency by helping drivers to be smoother.
