Any journey many different types of turns/ junctions all similar rules. Any manoeuvre - advance
planning using the constant stream of information from around you. Plan every move, check the mirrors - all of them
- make clear and early signals, check again and then move decisively.
Visibility very important in junction and your position on the road dictates how well you can
see and how well you can be seen. The nearer to the stop or give way line the better the field of view. If you need
to ease forward to improve your view do so but always with great care.
When coming towards any junction decide early which lane, which way you are turning. Check your
mirrors - all of them -, make a clear early signal, check again and make your move to the desired position. When
turning left or right make a final check of both mirrors to ensure there are no cyclists.
Always ensure that you pull up at a junction far enough from the car in front. This is
particularly important on hills where the other car may run back.
