Doncaster Advanced Motorists

Driving in Town Dear readers, Denser traffic and more pedestrians make town and city driving far more intense than driving on the open road. Hazards are also likely to be concealed and there are more junctions and traffic lights etc to deal with. The only way to cope safely with all these potential dangers is to concentrate intensely, spotting them early and taking the appropriate measures to be prepared for them. Local knowledge is particularly useful in town, but you should never let it lure you into a false sense of security, as most accidents occur within five minutes of home, where drivers are most complacent. Always position your car to achieve the best view ahead, using the information gained to ensure you‘re in the right lane as early as possible. Should you make a mistake that cannot easily be rectified with a U- turn, drive on as planned then turn around, making your way back to the correct route. Advanced observations in town helps you to spot many hazards and identify plenty of useful driving information. Here are some important things to look for…  Parked cars can obscure hazards. As you pass them, choose a speed and road position that gives you enough reaction time if, for example, a door is opening without warning or someone steps out,  Spot tell-tale signs that a car is about to pull out: angled wheels, exhaust smoke and illuminated tail-lights etc.  Look out for pedestrians who are using traffic crossings incorrectly. Many start crossing when the green man `bleeps` without even looking to see if any traffic is approaching. Also keep an eye out for `late runners`, who will make a dash for it as your lights turn green.  Be aware of pedestrians near schools and pubs at key times, and near offices, stations etc at all times.  Give cyclists plenty of clearance as you pass them. Look out for them at junctions and always allow them enough space to `wobble`.  Lorries and buses can obscure important road signs. Looking ahead for signs will minimise this problem.  Delivery vans often park in awkward places, so take extra care when passing them. Remember to look underneath them to spot the feet of pedestrians who may step out into the road unexpectedly.  Taxis may make unexpected manoeuvres (u-turns, sudden stops) when they spot a fare. Be prepared for this when driving near railway stations and shopping centres etc. Above are to name just a few of the hazards the list is endless. If you are interested in the courses that we offer, you’ll be able to find this information on the Institute of Advanced Motorists website at www.iam.org.uk or Tel: 01302 886 276
