    Due to medical condition, I bid farewell to UPS almost two years ago. However I continue to use the 5 and 10. And the only reason I am here write this is because I do. While riding my motorcycle today, some A-hole decided the red light did not apply to him. Had I not been looking left right left or getting the big picture, I would have been hamburger meat by now. But I saw the jerk coming and slowed down enough to avoid a collision.

    My family thanks you UPS.

    Glad your still around to ride again.
    ​I use it too, especially on my motorcycles. Saved my ass a few times.

    The stuff works. Used it to teach both my kids to drive in the last three years. Just can't get them to back first into the driveway.
    ​I do not have them memorize the stuff verbatim!

    I always tell my wife that the stuff I learned while driving at ups in essence make me a super hero behind the wheel.

    UPS driver training has saved my bacon several times on the motorcycle.

    Glad it ended well for you, for some it does not.

    I just use a healthy amount of paranoia. I just figure everybody may be out to kill me and make it look like an accident.

    I also teach my children the 5 and 10 while driving. probably drives them crazy but I know it works. a couple years ago I wrote an article about the 5 seeing habits for our local newspaper and they printed it.

    By the thread title I thought you were saved by the Ben Franklin on the town square.

    The 5 and 10 are things most use every day while driving. Becoming a "professional" and realizing these rules and executing them is what makes it all stick and makes you a "pro."
    I will teach my kids these rules and make sure they understand them when that time comes... it is coming too soon for me.
