Very easy technique for "Safe Driver" Achievement!

hey, was checking out the video guide for this achievement and found the safety cones on the highway can get frustrating, so looked elsewhere on the map for this achievement, and found this spot at the top of the map:



this is just a roundabout but there is never cars on this and have tried this technique several times just to check! just find yourself a slow car (class C) or whatever you like ( i used a smart car) and just hold down the trigger a little so you can keep in control and you will get this achievement with ease

I grabbed a van, I think it was called a Gopher and got a 10 minute clean driving time. Just follow the main highway all the way around the island. There are only 2 parts that get tricky because of some road cones but because the van goes so slow its easy to miss any sort of trouble. This achievement really isn't that hard to get with the right car but your tip should help out anyone thats having a hard time with it...

I'm not necessarily having a hard time with this Cheevo, I just haven't sat down to do it properly yet. But this will make for a great fall-back if I do find myself struggling. Good tip!

I made it together with the achievement "Man Around Town" by driving in the highway with a calss c car.

Just be patient and don't be so risky to pass through between cars.

I just got this on the highway with one of the slower cars. You don't have to worry about control as you should have enough time to maneuver.

Get a smashed up van, so that it goes slow. Then drive on the freeway. Easiest to go the wrong way so you can weave.

If just get one of the slower bikes and do the same

I was struggling with this through out my whole playthrough, being constantly reminded that Burn Her Corpse had 2:03 everytime I went 5 seconds without crashing.

As soon as the achievement popped I intentionally crashed into a wall. My time? 2:02. Now I get to the be the guy people are constantly reminded of when they're struggling for this. lol.

Nice method although tbh, I actually think the highway one with a gopher might be better simply due to that on the highway you still have to think and it keeps your mind in it somewhat whereas with that way above I imagine it would be easy to mentally switch off and screw it up for yourself through doing this.

Nice idea, but got to admit, I used the ultra-slow Gopher to just cruise around the freeway circuit.

Was struggling with other cars to go beyonD 30 seconds, got in the Gopher and did a 4 minute 40 second run on my first attempt, very easy indeed!

There are a lot of car accidents because of drunk driving. States are cracking down on drunk driving. Good, safe and responsible driving is an obligation for everyone on the road. That is the serious part. The easy part is if you apply simple rules and techniques, it can become second nature. It aims to reduce the risk of collision by anticipating dangerous situations, despite adverse conditions or the mistakes of others. This can be achieved through adherence to a variety of general rules, as well as the practice of specific driving techniques. This not only helps you avoid mistakes but also avoid being the victim of others' mistakes.

What does this have to do with the achievement...?

I got this one and the Gold Award for "Wreckless Driver" at the same time.
Got myself a Class A "Panzer" and had a Clean drive for 2 minutes just by using the Highway.


Anyway, this is a clever tip and should help anyone having trouble with the achievement.

I just got almost 6 minutes by just driving a Knox armored car I had hijacked on the highway. I could have kept going but I got bored and just went and turned it in. Kept it going all the way until I drove it into the garage, lol.

I found it easier to do it on the wrong side of the road as there always seems to be a lot less traffic going the other way, plus since it's so slow, you can have a hard time passing people in time to avoid other cars if you're going with traffic, where you don't have that problem with oncoming traffic.

Only just started the game and was contemplating trying it on the Motorway ('Freeway' to you most of you it seems). Now I'll definitely be doing this.

Incidently, what do you call a 'Freeway' if it's not free?
