America's "Lowest Common Denominator" driving regulations
breed low-performance drivers in the USA.
High performance drivers already know that racing improves the breed.
When every aspect of both car and driver is optimized, you end up with a better result on the track.
It's important to understand that this applies equally to both car and driver.
The DAM driving philosophy is based on borrowing lessons learned from years of racing, and applying them to the street to breed better and safer drivers.
Dellis' philosophy teaches that it is actually SAFER to drive through traffic in a legal, polite, safe manner, than it is to let the traffic drive through you.
Justification for this begins with the fact that your eyeballs are normally located in the FRONT half of your head.
It ends with the fact that, in most cars, the brakes are about SIX times stronger than its engine; but there are a host of other reasons.
Furthermore, DAM Good Drivers Believe:
- Most accidents are avoidable or can be mitigated through better car control.
- The current state of driver's ed in this country is abysmal...at best.
- Racing is good and breeds better drivers.
- A high-performance car is a safe car.
- Driving slightly faster than the regular flow of traffic is safest.
- Most posted speed limits fall below the Natural Speed Limit.
- The police should be better staffed, financed, and trained so they can apprehend unsafe drivers operating hazardous equipment...CHP sets the standard in this regard.
- It is sometimes necessary to "work" the traffic around you to prevent traffic-congestion.
- If the slower traffic doesn't keep right, we politely go around them.
- Truckers shouldn't play vigilante cops and use their size to enforce lane restrictions prior to merge points.
- A certain amount of driving anxiety is necessary to stay alert at the wheel.
- It is better to miss an exit, rather than sweep across three lanes at the last minute to make it.
- Drunk drivers need to be removed from the roadways and treated.
- It is sometimes safer to temporarily exceed the posted speed limit.
- Government agencies don't always have the right answers.
- This list is by no means complete.
