Misleading Road Signals

One of the most major problems many young, new and inexperienced drivers will face when learning to master the rules of the road is the aspect of communication, specifically with other road users such as fellow drivers, cyclists and even pedestrians. Misunderstanding another road user can put you in a dangerous situation if you choose to act in a way the other person is not expecting.

One example of this is flashing your headlights – Whilst may interpret this as a signal to “go ahead”, you should be careful using this as it is not designed for this purpose, and so you may well be penalised for this on your driving test.

Safe driving from Britannia!
