This is a 2-hour driving session conducted in two different urban business districts. The first hour of training will be in an Urban Old Business District, which is a very different driving environment than the 2nd hour of training in an Urban New Business District. We find the older business districts in the blocks of uptown Columbus, downtown Atlanta, or in any city where the city’s business district began.
Similarly, if you are driving in any city in America, you will find the same challenges in their Old Business Districts. Therefore, if you learn the sensory systems search, scanning patterns, and hazard recognition in your city so that you will be able to translate those skills to all major cities in America.
Old Urban Business Districts have many different roadways—one-ways, two-ways, two-way divide roadways—which can be challenging for the beginning driver, older driver, and international driver. In addition, narrowed roads, increased vehicular, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic can be especially dangerous.
Likewise, all cities including Columbus have Urban New Business Districts, which is where we find all the major shopping and dining businesses. In Columbus, we are talking about Columbus Park Crossing, Walmart, Target, and so on.
