Many drivers do not anticipate a bend in the road and how this will affect their driving.
Too many drivers take a bend too fast when they need to consider how tight the bend is, will they need to reduce their speed and when will they need to do this, otherwise other road users behind will not know of their intentions.
As you drive towards a bend it is good practice to check your mirrors.
The way to approach a bend is to slow down sufficiently before the bend so you can come of the brakes as you enter the corner. You can then accelerate gently during the bend if needed. This ensures that your tyres aren’t under too much pressure and reduces the risk of skidding.
