This is the cover of the original driving book, written in 1988, and was the genesis for the present day Driving Techniques book. The original book was written for the Law Enforcement community. Throughout the last 28 years the book morphed into a driving book for the public. The original book discussed, Vehicle Dynamics for EVOC Instructors, High […]
If there is one exercise that appears in most all EVOC programs it would be the slalom course. Driving through a slalom creates an abundance of teaching points, one of them is the effect of vehicle speed on the decision-making process. The following are some examples of how that can be accomplished.
No, this is not a bad joke! It turns into a discussion about vehicle dynamics, a rather interesting conversation about Sir Isaac Newton and his laws of physics.
In between bites of Calzone, we discussed the theories of vehicle dynamics, the laws of physics and how they can apply to modern day crime fighting, and driver training programs.
An article that appeared in the December issue of Tactics and Preparedness. The title is “High Performance Driving” but the article is more about defining and scientifically measuring driving skills. Some excerpts from the article: “If a driver can use 50 percent of the vehicle’s emergency maneuvering capability – they are considered an inexperienced driver. […]
As the title states, this is a research paper examining the effect of electronic stability control (ESC) on the PIT maneuver. The paper takes a scientific approach to examine the ESC/PIT question. In my opinion, it is an example of what can be accomplished when the science of driving is used as a learning tool. Kudos […]
