Q:

Tips for identifying hazards

A:

  • Look further ahead so you see things earlier and have more time to deal with them.
  • Think about what could happen – a side road may have a car in it, a parked lorry may have a pedestrian crossing behind it – anticipate what may develop.
  • Use road signs and understand their message - junction signs give early notice that a driver may be trying to pull out into your path.
  • Observe others and what they are doing. Expect and plan for their actions as they develop.
  • Use your mirrors so that you are aware of who is behind you and what is going on – especially motorcyclists and cyclists.
  • Hazards include bends and junctions. Expect that there may be a car emerging or a cyclist around the bend, this will allow you enough time to respond safely.
