Other Road Users

Be aware of:

Carrying passengers

  • Make sure they’re all belted in before setting off.
  • Telling them to tone it down if they’re being noisy and distracting you.
  • Focusing on getting you all there in one piece, rather than trying to impress them with cornering at high speed, overtaking etc.
  • Ensuring you are focused and alert for the journey.
  • Staying within speed limits.
  • Not driving on drink and drugs.
  • Passengers not wearing a seatbelt

Cyclists

  • Watch out for cyclists, especially when turning – make eye contact if possible to show you have seen them.
  • Use your indicators – signal so that cyclists can slow down.
  • Give cyclists space – if there isn’t sufficient space to pass, hold back.
  • Always check for cyclists when you open your car door.
  • Avoid driving over advanced stop lines – these allow cyclists to get to the front and increase their visibility.

Slow vehicles

  • Be aware of slow vehicles on the roads whilst driving.
