New York, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2014

Vehicular accidents could happen to anyone. However, according to a post from examiner.com dated January 02, 2014, novice drivers are more prone to them. In response to it, Stisim Drive suggested driving simulator training to help make them safer while behind the wheel.

Based on the post, a study found out that new drivers tend to become overconfident with their driving skills months after motoring, shared Stisim Drive. Because of that, they get more easily distracted - eating, texting and dialing while driving - and thus, increasing the risk of car accidents, it added.

The report said that the study was published in January 02 on the New England Journal of Medicine. It detailed that Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) were the two organizations that conducted the research.

Here is a part of the report.

“Newly licensed teens are more likely to engage in distracting behaviors when behind the wheel than experienced drivers, according to a study in the Jan. 2 New England Journal of Medicine.”

There are many things that could cause road accidents. However, Stisim Drive said that distracted driving could indeed significantly increase the possibility of them, especially among new drivers.

Given that, the company said that novice drivers should get more extensive training to make themselves safer while behind the wheel. Particularly, it advised the training with driving simulation system.

Stisim Drive said that driving simulators offer a controlled and safe environment for drivers to practice on. And with the different road scenarios it presents, it said that one could better his or her on-the-road judgment and decision-making with their help. That, by default, better a person's driving skill, it stated.

However, of all the driving simulation systems, Stisim Drive asserted that its own are the best. As it reasoned, that's because its simulators are cost-effective and could also be used in injury rehabilitation and research besides training and instruction.

Moreover, it stated that they were designed with a driving simulator software that is customizable according to the users' needs. Not only that, the software, it added, is loaded with almost every road scene that a driver could encounter.
