A report related that the number of women drinking and driving has increased in the past decades. And knowing the danger the habit presents, driving simulation company Stisim Drive gave out a number of tips to help female drivers stay safer while behind the wheel.
According to a news post from fox2now.com dated February 17, 2014, the FBI's statistics showed that DUI arrests of women greatly rose from 10% in 1980s. In this decade, it related that the rate significantly jumped to 25%.
The report said that experts believed more and more women are turning to alcohol to relieve stress, thus, the increase. Nevertheless, it related that some women are also making the right choice of hiring a designated driver when out for events that could leave them drunk.
Below is an excerpt from the said report.
"For decades, men have led the way when it comes to drinking and driving. It now appears women are closing the gap."
"Statistics from the FBI show women made up 10% of DUI arrests in the early 1980’s. The number has grown to 25% this decade."
Drunk driving is one of the most common causes of road accidents, stated Stisim Drive. And as it commented, the fact that more women are now committing it increases the possibility of untoward traffic incidents for everybody. Hence, to help female drivers stay safer while behind the wheel, it gave out a number of advice.
The most obvious thing a woman could do to prevent the risk of drunk driving, Stisim Drive said is to quit it. If alcoholism is the root problem, it stated that there are now several facilities that provide treatments and therapies for it.
But besides drinking-and-driving, the company stated that there are several other things that make roads dangerous for any driver. And so, it also advised women to improve their driving skills and on-the-road decision making.
To do that, Stisim Drive recommended the driving simulator training. Given that it allows drivers to practice on any road scene without having to worry about crashes, it stated that it makes a truly safe and cost-effective help.
However, of the many driving simulators, the company asserted that its own are the best. And as it reasoned, that's because they've been perfected for the past 25 years of Stisim Drive in the industry. Not only that, it stated that its Stisim Drive software made them customizable and programmable to meet any client's need be it for training, rehabilitation or research.
