Being able to drive defensively is critically important for anyone who gets behind the wheel, but it is especially important for young drivers. The reason for this is that new drivers are more likely to be involved in accidents due to their lack of experience. Defensive driving involves paying attention to both the driving conditions and the other drivers on the road. It also includes being able to anticipate potential problems and take corrective action if necessary. As they gain the ability to anticipate and respond correctly, young South Dakota drivers make the roadways safer. Further, a young driver with defensive skills is better prepared to handle unexpected situations that may arise while driving. At the end of the day defensive driving is a vital skill that young motorists need to grasp before getting behind the wheel.
