The 4 Considerations when driving.

What is a hazard? A hazard is anything that might make you change speed or direction and sometimes both.

When dealing with any hazard whilst learning you should use a routine such as Mirror, Signal, Maneuver or MSM.

  1. Check your mirrors (all of them)
  2. Signal (use your indicators)
  3. Maneuver

Remember: In reality, sometimes the only signal given by some people is speed and position.

Maneuver, this is doing what you need to do and where the below 4 considerations come in.

1.Safety:

This is the most important factor. Remember it’s not just your safety but the safety of the people around you. So think about the 3 Zones of Safety.

2.Legality:

If it’s illegal, it’s dangerous. Are you aware of the signs and lines around you? Do you know what they mean? Do you have reasonable knowledge of The Highway Code?

3.Practicality:

It must be practicable or why bother? How many times have you seen someone trying to get into a parking space that’s to small?

4.Convenience:

Other drivers and people need to be considered, you don’t own the road. Doing a three point turn on a busy road might be quicker for you, but what about everyone else?
