Anticipation.

18 Feb
Anticipation
Anticipation in driving means planning well ahead and acting promptly to deal with the changes that happen around you. It should, with experience, become an almost automatic reaction. It’s the hallmark of a good driver.
You need to continually question the actions of other road users.
If you plan ahead and try to anticipate the actions of others, you can:
  • avoid being taken by surprise
  • prevent some hazards developing
  • take early evasive action for those hazards that do develop.
Patience
It’s said that patience is a virtue, and this is certainly never more true than when your driving.
Sadly, incompetence, bad manners and aggression seem to be commonplace on our roads, but there is no excuse for this kind of behaviour when driving.
You shouldn’t let bad driving behaviour by others lead to any conflict. If you do , your well on the way to an accident.
Be prepared to make allowances for someone else’s mistakes. In everyone’s interest try to ignore their behaviour.
Dont
  • drive in a spirit of retaliation or competition
  • use aggressive language or gestures
  • try to teach another road user a lesson,even if they caused you inconvenience.
Do
  • keep calm
  • show restraint
  • use sound judgement.
There’s no better lesson than a good example.
