We’ve all heard the phrase ‘speed kills’. However, it’s not just any speed that kills but inappropriate speed. Drivers need a thoughtful outlook to remain controlled, sensible and safe.

Expert drivers maintain a ‘what if?’ safety margin in case the unexpected happens. This also helps them judge how fast they should approach a hazard. With practice it becomes second nature to drive in a controlled manner in all situations.

TOP TIP

Develop your ‘what if?’ thinking so you always drive at an appropriate, safe speed.
