Welcome to the (did you know ) section of the website.

Each week we will add some useful facts that you may not know or you may have forgotten.

The new highway code was launched in September 07 and if you are a parent surfing for your childrens driving lessons you may not have seen this book for a very long time.

USE OF MIRRORS
 
DRIVING LESSONS CREWE
Use of mirrors.
There has always been a misconception as to why mirror use is so important.
“My dad said, make sure that you move your head so the examiners can see you check them”.
“I check my mirrors because my instructor said that I had to”.
“If I don’t check my mirrors I will fail my driving test”.
Let’s look at the real reason you should check your mirrors.
Use of mirrors before signalling:
Before you apply as signal, it is vital that you know what is happening around you.
What if a motorbike is overtaking and you suddenly apply a signal, he could panic if he thinks you haven’t seen him resulting in a sudden change of direction. By noticing the motorbike in the mirrors, you would have the option to delay the signal and let him pass. Even better would be to notice the motorbike gaining on you with early mirror use and you could then apply the signal at an earlier stage to warn of your intentions.
Use of mirrors before changing direction:
Use of mirrors before changing direction is vital to check what is happening beside you. Think of a situation where you are slowing to turn left and a cycle comes off the pavement or when moving out to pass a parked vehicle and a vehicle is overtaking.
Use of mirrors before slowing down:
Imagine approaching a pedestrian crossing where people are stood waiting to cross, the lights could change at any time and a mirror check shows a vehicle very close behind. You could use the information gained to slow in anticipation of a light change, this will also encourage the following vehicle to slow also. Failure to gain this information could result in having to stop suddenly resulting in the following vehicle being unable to stop and possibly crashing in to the back of you.
Use of mirrors before speeding up.
Think of a situation where you have just emerged in to a new road (minor to major) and once straightened up and checked ahead, the next important issue is what is happening behind. Perhaps you may have misjudged the speed of following traffic and they are approaching faster than you thought. You have the option to accelerate up to the limit (if safe) to get a move on or in a scenario where they have already committed to an overtake, you could then choose to slow and enable them to pass safely. Without the information from the mirrors you would be unaware and as a result be involved in a possible crash.

 
 
CORRECT USE OF SIGNALS
 
DRIVING LESSONS CREWE

Correct use of signals

Following on from last week’s blog on the use of mirrors, I would now like to look at the correct use of signals.

Why do we give signals?

The prime purpose is to communicate with other road users and let them know are intentions.

Timing of signals:

When we decide to turn left or right, the timing of our indicator is very important. Should we signal to early it could be confusing as following traffic may think we are going to pull up on the left.Timing is also crucial if there is a side road before the one we intend to turn in to, other road users may think that we intend to turn sooner and as a result may pull out in front of us.

Applying a signal to late will be of little use to anyone. Take the example of turning left again, if we do not inform the traffic behind in plenty of time, they may not have time to react especially if they are not concentrating (they could be distracted or on the phone for example)Now we could adopt the attitude that’s their problem but do we need the aggro of a rear end shunt?

Use of a signal when changing direction:

Should we use indicators when changing direction? If we are changing lanes and we have following traffic, it’s a very good idea to tell them our intentions or they may overtake before we have the chance to move out.

Changing direction to pass parked cars can often be confusing. Generally it is preferable to use your road position to send a message to following traffic. We can do this by correct positioning. When approaching a parked vehicle on the left, we can position just left of the centre line (right turn position)this should alert following traffic of our intentions to overtake (we can only do two things here overtake or park)It is not wrong to apply an indicator but what if there is a side road on the right! Someone may think we are about to turn right and possibly pull out in front of us. However there will be times when we are not able to position correctly because of other factors (other parked vehicles, narrow road) an indicator will then be required. An indicator should also be used if you think the vehicle behind is looking to move around you.

Using headlights a signal:

Use of headlights as a signal can be very confusing to other road users.

The official meaning of a headlight flash is to warn other road users of your presence. Now we are all well aware that headlamp flashing is widely used as a signal to proceed. Let’s look at a situation where someone wants to cross your path, for example an oncoming vehicle looking to turn right .You flash your headlamps to let them know that you will wait for them to turn, when you do this  other road users will often not check effectively but take “your word for It” that its safe. What if a cyclist is coming up on the left side, they could be unaware of your intentions to wait and the vehicle turning may not see them resulting a collision.

Another factor with headlamp flashing is when you flash to someone that you know coming towards you, what if there is a vehicle waiting to emerge from a side road, they may misinterpret your meaning and pull out.

Signalling to pedestrians:

We often think we are doing pedestrians a favour by waiting and waving them across the road. Waiting for them to cross in itself is not the problem; it’s when we invite them to cross.

They will often “take your word” for it that it’s safe, but what if a cyclist comes up on the inside or a motorcycle is overtaking, they may not have seen the pedestrian or be aware of your attentions resulting in a collision.

Brake lights:

Brake lights are of course very useful to inform following traffic that you are slowing. When you get a situation where you wish to pull up on the left, but an indicator could be confusing when there is a side road to the left, you could squeeze the brakes to inform others that you are slowing and then apply the indicator once passed the junction.

Signalling to move off and stop:

This often a subject for much debate.

Do you need to apply an indicator when moving off from the side of the road?

Generally if there are no other road users in the area then no one is going to see it. When there is traffic approaching from behind, applying a right indicator can be quite confusing as they may think you are about to pull out in front of them. It is often preferable to wait until they have passed to avoid confusion. In a situation where there are approaching vehicles or pedestrians, an indicator will often be beneficial to let them know your intentions.

Applying an indicator when you intend to pull up at the side of the road is vital when there is following traffic. Failure to do this in good time could result in a rear end collision (very popular in the U.K.).

Use of signals can be quite a complex subject as with most things in driving and is not always black or white. Take advice from your driving instructor / trainer as to how to apply the use of signals to differing situations.

 
 
ON LOSING YOUR L PLATES
 

DRIVING LESSONS CREWE

On losing those ‘L’ plates



Having the ability to drive opens up an entire new world of opportunities.

 

Firstly, you are free to go where you want, when you want and don’t have to depend on intermittent public transport systems or the good graces of your parents, who forever guilt trip you about being a free taxi service.

Seeing the world from four wheels can also be a great way to travel and the good old-fashioned road trip will never grow old and tired. Finally, you aren’t limited to working in your town; when the job is a 20-mile drive away, that’s not a problem.

However, driving isn’t exactly cheap. First you have to pay to obtain lessons and to do the test, then you need to get a car, purchase fuel, services, MOTs, road tax and insurance and to tell the truth everything is getting more costly. So what else could you do to save as much money as you possibly can without scrimping of quality and enjoyment?

Begin by making sure you have as few driving instructions you can. A lesson costs around £20 per hour in London so too many of them really will hurt your bank balance, so educate yourself as much as you possibly can to assist the task go as smoothly and quickly as possible.

When buying a vehicle, think small, economical and green. Not only will an eco-friendly car give you more mileage for your pound it’ll also keep the road tax rate to a minimum. The cleaner the vehicle, the lower the tax. But additionally, drive sensibly. Harsh acceleration and breaking means more fuel so therefore greater expense as well as increasing the overall level of deterioration on the car.

Insurance however will most likely be your biggest expense besides the actual purchase of the car, although in some instances, particularly for males under the age of 25, the insurance coverage can be more than the car. So be aware: don’t splash out on a large engine and high-spec car if you can’t afford the insurance. Figures state that one in five young drivers have an accident in their first year of driving, so insurance providers respond with high premiums.

This makes deciding on the best insurance imperative. Search for companies with a good record for young drivers and lots of worthwhile extras contained in the policy. One such example is Kwik Fit Insurance, it offers a 20% discount for purchasing car insurance online and a totally free MOT.
