Driver's Ed 1.2

Vehcile Adjustments

1.2 Vehicle Adjustments
1. Seat Adjustment Adjust the seat & steering column for the “Proper Driving Posture”
2. Seat Adjustments Align your body to your seat.
3. Seat Adjustments Adjust the seat to a comfortable upright position.
4. DO NOT DRIVE WITH THE SEAT IN A RECLINED OR SEMI-RECLINED POSITION BECAUSE This is dangerous & reduces both your vision & your ability to react to emergency situations.
5. Be sure you are the proper distance from the steering wheel & foot pedals.
6. The pedals must be easily reached.
7. Have good clear vision through the windshield, each side window & all mirrors.
8. Your foot should move smoothly from the accelerator to the brake while the heel is kept on the floor.
9. Your body should be about 10 to 12 inches back from the steering wheel with or without an air bag.
10. At 10-12 inch distance from the steering wheel, an air bag would hit the driver in the chest if there were a collision.
11. Sitting closer than 10-12 inches to the steering could result in serious head or neck injuries from an air bag hitting the chin or face.
12. Do not move the seat so far forward or extend the steering column to a point where you cannot easily steer.
13. The top of the steering wheel should be no higher than the top of the shoulders.
14. Properly adjust seat head restraints to a level even with the back of the head.
15. Head restraints are designed to prevent whiplash if hit from behind.
16. Mirror Adjustments Adjust mirrors properly.Remember that all three of the rear view mirrors must be adjusted so that the widest possible view is given.
17. Keep blind spots to a minimum.
18. Adjust mirrors after the seat is adjusted correctly. (Always adjust before driving.)
19. Outside mirrors should be adjusted to reduce blind spots & provide maximum visibility.
20. Adjust the inside rearview mirror to frame the rear window.
21. To get the smallest blind spot at the right side of the car, turn the inside mirror so that only the edge of the right rear window post is seen.
22. LEFTSide Mirror: Seated in upright position, lean your head to the left about five inches & adjust the left mirror. Rear fender should be just visible on the left edge of the mirror about a half inch up from the bottom.
23. RIGHTSide Mirror: Seated in an upright position, lean your head to the right about five inches & adjust the left edge of the mirror about a half inch from the bottom.
24. After mirror adjustments, if you lean slightly backward & see more than a glimpse of the rear corners of the vehicle in your outside mirrors, adjust them outward.
25. To make sure mirrors are in the correct position, let a car pass you on the left. As it passes out of view in the inside mirror you should see its front bumper in the outside left (driver side) mirror.
26. Even with properly adjusted mirrors, always turn your head & check blind spots when you want to turn or change lanes.
27. Fasten & adjust safety belts (both lap & shoulder if separate belts).
28. Lap belts should be positioned firmly across the hips while the shoulder belt is firmly across the shoulder.
29. Make sure all passengers are using safety belts or child restraints before driving.
30. If you or your passengers are not wearing a seat belt or are not secured in a car seat or booster seat, you may have to pay a fine.
31. Full details on safety belts and child restraints are found in the Protecting Passengers/Drivers chapter.
