Cross Roads – major road going ahead:
Plan well ahead and check your mirrors to gain any early information on following traffic, type of junction, signs and road markings relating to the junction, size of the junction, vision at the junction, traffic at the junction, uphill or downhill approach and pedestrians near the junction. All this information will help you decide on the correct position, speed and gear to approach the junction.
Effective observation must be made on the approach to and before entering any junction.
Look – For traffic, pedestrians and other hazards.
Assess – Is it safe to proceed?
Decide – When to proceed.
Act – Positive action (this could mean proceed or wait)
It is important when approaching a cross roads on the major road intending to go ahead that you look into the roads on the right and then left to assess any traffic that may emerge before deciding your safe speed on approach.
