Defensive driving

Defensive driving is a skill you don’t think to practice until it’s too late.

Driving instructors say avoiding those obstacles could save more lives on the road and sidewalks.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, almost 5,000 pedestrians are killed from car crashes every year.

Instructors and drivers are focusing more efforts on avoiding those kinds of incidents.

Instructor Terry Kerns with Paducah Area Transit Systems trains those to sharpen one of the most important skills, defensive driving, by using a simulator.

One of the most common errors when it comes to the simulation is speeding.

Kerns says its a problem they’re fixing one driver at a time.
