When approaching a hazard, it is best to know what to do ahead of time – But if a hazard is unexpected, how can we do this?

The best way is to have a Hazard Routine – A pre-planned process to follow when approaching any hazard. Everyone knows about Mirror-Signal-Manoeuvre – But if you also append this with Position-Speed-Look-Assess-Decide-Act – You have your Hazard Routine all ready!

Safe driving from Britannia!
