Driver’s education classes teach students to use the IPDE strategy when driving. IPDE stands for Identify, Predict, Decide, and Execute. This strategy also should be used in off-road driving.
- Identify any objects or conditions that may cause you trouble while driving.
- Predict what results might occur when you encounter the object or condition.
- Decide which of the actions you could take will provide the least risk based on your predictions.
- Execute the action you select.
