ALERT AND CONSIDERATE DRIVING

If there is a sharp dip in the road ahead, you ought to?
Reduce speed, keep left, and be alert to any parked vehicles that may be temporarily hidden from your view.
If there is a red warning triangle on the road ahead:
Slow your vehicle and be alert to any hazard ahead.
If you are about to reach trafic lights, that have been green for quite a length of time, you should:
Get ready to stop if there is any change before you reach them.
If you are reaching a junction with traffic lights out of order, you should:
Drive very carefully, and look out for any other traffic.
If you see cattle on the road ahead, while driving along, you should:
Slow down, and overtake very carefully (only if possible and safe to do so).

When you are approaching a hump-back bridge, you should:
Slow down, keep to the left, and remain alert to any parked vehicles that may be temporarily out of sight.

There are pedestrians on the footpaths up ahead, and pools of water are on the road. You should:
Slow down and attempt to avoid the pools, and not (be an ignoramus) splash the pedestrians.
If you are on the point of stopping, and notice that the vehicle behind you is towing a trailer, you should:
Indicate well in advance, pull up slowly and give extra stopping distance to the vehicle to your rear.
If a bus up ahead is pulling out from the bus stop you should:
Reduce your speed, and allow it to pull out.
If you are on a narrow road, and another vehicle is approaching you in the opposite direction, you should:
Slow down, and leave sufficient clearance space between the two vehicles, before you proceed.
If you want to drop into a shop on the side of the street, while driving along, what should you do?
You should continue along, till you find a proper parking space.
If you are travelling behind a vehicle which you don't want to overtake, you should:
Remain well back, so that traffic from behind may safely overtake you.
If you are driving in a line of traffic and don't wish to overtake, you should:
Remain well back, and leave enough space in front of you, so that a vehicle from behind could safely overtake you.
What happens if you don't remain well back from a vehicle that you don't want to overtake?
Other road-users might try to overtake both vehicles, which would reduce the clearance for oncoming traffic.
When you don't remain well back from a vehicle you don't want to overtake:
It is more difficult for traffic behind, to overtake you.
Driving too close to the vehicle in front, also known as "tail-gating", is very dangerous because:
You don't have sufficient space to stop quickly, and could collide into the vehicle in front.
If you want to use your mobile phone when driving, you should:
Pull in somewhere safe, and stop the car.
If you drive into an area with over-hanging trees during daylight, what problems might occur?
Visibility could be severely reduced.
What should you do when you are being overtaken by another vehicle?
You should maintain your current course, and slow down if necessary.
If you are parked in a row of cars, with other traffic overtaking, you should be sure that:
Before even thinking of opening a door, check that it is safe to do so, and that no vehicles or bicycles are nearby.
How and when should signals be given to other road-users?
They should be given well in advance, and in a clear manner.
If you give a late signal, what could happen?
Other road-users mightn't have enough time to react, and there could be an accident.
