Flashing the Headlights

For many drivers on the roads, the main source of frustration between yourself and other motorists can be a lack of communication – How exactly are you supposed to convey a message to a driver of another vehicle?

One technique many drivers employ is flashing the headlights, particularly as a “Go Ahead” signal to other drivers to continue – However this is not always the safest option.

For example if you are turning right into a junction, and a driver on the opposite side of the road flashes his headlights – Does this mean you are safe to continue turning? Or could it be that he was instead flashing a driver coming out of the junction to pull out – Leading this other driver directly into your path…

Safe driving from Britannia!
