    Do things to help take things off your mind. How far apart do we live from each other?

    Practice in your car. Get a pattern down. Start with eye lead time, following distance, then go down the right side - intersection, sidewalk, whatever is there, and then right mirror. Go BACK out to the eye lead time, following distance, then go down the left side - intersection, sidewalk, mirror.

    You'll have redlights in there so call them out - fresh or stale. Just practice. out loud in your car.

    Remember you cannot go from one side mirror directly to another. Speak loud and slow...it fills the time and makes it easier to think about your next move.
     
  7. The faster you drive the faster you will talk drive slow. And go back and forth doing triangles that way you won't say 2 backs and dq

    You will find that over time the safe driving practices from work will find their way to your personal driving.
