Over 90 percent of the information, we need to control the vehicle comes from what we see. Vision is the foundation of safe and secure driving. Vision is a complex sense affected by a number of variables, many over which we have no control. Your vision inside the car is not only affected by physical […]
In the late 80’s and early 90’s South America in general, and Colombia in particular, was not someplace you took the wife and kids for a vacation. The Middle East was its usual pit of a place.
Other than soccer, vehicle attacks were the national pastime. The old Scotti School (like the present day Vehicle Dynamics Institute (VDI) was roaming around those locations conducting training on a regular basis. Executives working in those areas were driving in two and sometimes three car motorcades. Lead and backup vehicles had shooters. So the question was raised, “Do you guys do shooting?”.
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.
