When minor fault can turn into serious

If other road users are affected, a minor driving fault can turn into a serious one.

Gap between front car

When stopping at the traffic light make sure you see the wheels of the car in front.

Turning right routine

When you turning right do the following:
1. Check interior mirror
2. Check right mirror
If it’s safe
3. Indicate the signal

Turning left routine

When you turning left do the following:
1. Check interior mirror
2. Check left mirror
If it’s safe
3. Indicate the signal

Exterior mirrors

The more you see side of the car in exterior mirrors the more blindspot is. The side of the car should be seen in mirror only little bit.

Blindsports

You need to check blind spot when:
1. Moving off
2. Exiting the roundabout during changing lanes from the right to the left
3. Merging to the motorway or dual carriageway from side road or slip road
4. Change lanes ?
5. Overtaking

Don’t look around to check for them – you’ll take your focus away from the road in front of you, with potentially dangerous consequences

Dont check the blindsports when turning left or right because you will be taking eyes off the road in front and it cause dangerous situation.

So general rule check blindsports when your car moves in the straight direction but not when you intend to change direction of moving from straight to the left or right.

Comment: The way i check blindsports now is correct and continue to do so, no need strategy changes. I will follow the strategy Sharma taught me. So, when i move off, when i change lanes on the road of when i exit the roundabout and when i overtake on the right or left i check the blindsports.

Slip road

Slip road is the road that merges with dual carriageway or motoroad and finishes later on.
It helps your you to build right speed and the dual carriageway or more often a motorway more smoothly. Sometimes slip road becomes a road itself.
You must change lane after you emerged into dual carriageway or motorway as soon as you can because motorway will finish anyway.

Less space less speed

Golden rule – less space less speed. When there are not enough space, narrow roads, obstructions reduce the speed down
