help with driving safely?
Okey I just started driving im inbetween could be a lot better, but I am scared to DEATH about hitting someone or hitting another car has anyone else ever felt this way? what do you do to make yourselves feel better? same with nursing help!
no mean answers please.
Hope for the best, expect the worst from other drivers. Always be aware of whats happening around you.
Watch your rear view mirror. You see that maniac back there, weaving in and out of traffic? Be ready for them, just maintain your lane position.
Watch out well ahead for brake lights. If you see many coming on at once be ready to slow up.
Always leave yourself an out if you can. That means keep an open spot like a space in the lane next next to you or the shoulder of the road or an added distance from the car in front of you in which to take evasive action to.
And if the worse happens, most modern autos have life saving safety features. Always wear your seat belt. I was in a 50 mph head-on collision a few years ago. The seat belt, air bag and engineered crumple zones built into the car surely saved my life. Even though my torso was one massive bruise, I suffered no serious injuries and only was in the hospital over night.
Good luck and stay safe.

help me find this storie?
I only know that Nic and Adrian were both killed and it was a collision with a semi in WA state. I haven’t found any news stories on it tho. Let me know if you know where I can find this story!
It is unfortunate how high the traffic accident rate is, and because ho hum, people get killed all the time, the news media not always do story on it.
1. Get to a somewhat relevant News Search Engine
2. Nic Adrian semi WA accident
are the keywords, except is “Nic” the correct spelling?
And would any article say “semi” or “truck” or ?
Would “WA” state (Washington) be spelled out, or more focused geography
No hits so let’s take individual words out & retry
Was the accident REALLY in WA (Washington) state or was it in VA (Virginia) … Your question dead bang correct or you had a typo?
I ask this because “Adrian” is name of someone in an accident in VA (Virginai) I do not see any “Nic” or “semi” in this story
Adrian Leonard was not killed
She was driving a pickup truck without a valid license
she was driving recklessly & lost control & crashed it
State police say that driving too fast around a curve contributed to the cause of the accident
The pickup truck went off the highway, overturned, and caught on fire
6 teenage girls were in the back of the pickup truck which is totally illegal, because no seat belts
34 states have laws prohibiting carrying passengers in the bed of pickup trucks. The Virginia law makes exceptions for over age 16, agricultural workers moving from field to field, and vehicles in a parade.
Other states exceptions include covered pickups, and Ok if speed below 25 mph
a 17 year old and 14 year old died at the scene
a 14 year old died on way to hospital
3 others were injured
names of the 3 dead girls = Brianna Peak, Ashley Leonard, Allison Turman
the 17 year old was inside the truck’s cab, which did have seat belts, but she was not wearing them … She would have lived had she worn them, as required by law
3 of 6, in the back of the pickup, below age of 16 … It is more serious crime to be placing children lives at risk, than placing adults lives at risk
Apparently in rural areas it is pretty common for teenagers to ignore safety rules about having people riding in the back of pick up trucks
Because Adrian is age 15 (a minor) she may escape being charged as an adult for causing the deaths of the others
The owner of the pick up truck is 18 year old Michael Scales who is also facing multiple charges for letting his vehicle be driven by an unlicensed driver and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Michael lives in North Carolina, is not cooperating with Virginia authorities, who may seek extradtion on him
The above story also made it into the Washington Post
Here’s an accident where West Viginia driver of auto lost control and ended up mixing it up with a semi from Adrian Michigan
Here’s an accident killing a bicyclist, and a person by the name of Adrian was charged with leaving scene of accident, which is much more serious when there’s injuries involved
Adrian had got off the bus just before the train collided with a pick up truck and got 6 people injured, when the train derailed, so Adrian was a witness to this. Lucky no one got killed
