Is it okay to use a "hand-free" phone when driving?
Just because it's hands-free doesn't make it safe; it can still distract you. The person you're talking to can't see the traffic situation. They won't stop speaking to you if you're approaching a hazard. It's safer not to use a phone at all if you're driving. Wait and find a safer place to stop.
These encourage drivers to reduce their speed. They may be red. You often see them on the approach to a: 1). Hazard, 2). Reduced Speed Limit
Any areas that are hidden form the driver, either by the car's bodywork or areas not covered by the mirrors. Be aware that a lorry driver can't see you if you're close behind. Keep well back so the driver can see you.
Why do large vehicles "hog" the road?
Larger vehicles need more room to manoeuvre. This will affect their position when approaching junctions, especially when turning left. Keep well back and don't try to pass them on the left as the read or the vehicle will cut in.
A large vehicle is trying to overtake me, but is taking a long time; what should I do?
Slow down and let them pass. They'll need more time to pass you than a car would.
What do I do if I'm travelling at the speed limit and a driver comes up behind flashing their headlights or trying to overtake?
Keep a steady course and allow them to overtake. Don't try to stop them; they could become more frustrated.
When should I flash my headlights?
Only flash your headlights to show other road users you're there. It's not a signal to show priority or impatience, nor to greet others
Why is diseal fuel particularly dangerous when spilt?
It's slippery. Take care when refuelling as there may be spilt fuel on the ground near the pump. Fuel contamination on shoes may cause them to slip when using foot pedals. To avoid spillage after refuelling, make sure your filler cap is securely fastened.
