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.

Driving lessons Nottingham, Moving off (POM)

26 Nov
This is an easy to follow, step by step method to move off safely.
P – Prepare. First of all get the vehicle ready to move; clutch down and select the appropriate gear, set the gas (one to one and half revs), then slowly bring the clutch up so that you feel the bite point.
O – Observe. Check it is safe; if moving away from the left hand curb, look in your interior (centre) mirror to see what is behind you. look in your offside (right) mirror to see what is coming from the right, finally look over your right shoulder (blind spot), the area that the two mirrors cannot see. Before moving off look ahead.
M – Move. Signal away from the curb, release the handbrake and keep your feet still.
When you move off safely you will have to judge that you will not slow down or make another road user change direction. (Just like when you cross the road safely) Therefore do not give a signal until you are about to move, otherwise it could be misleading. (‘Are you signalling to go? or to let people know that you want to go?)
