Driving Advice

  • If another person's driving is making you feel afraid, distance yourself from them as soon as it is safe to do so
  • If you are faced with an aggressive driver, where possible avoid eye contact
  • If someone is driving recklessly, limit inappropriate hand gestures and don't attempt to match their speed
  • Try not to drive in such a way as to draw attention to yourself, a beep of your horn can be misinterpreted
  • Always drive conscientiously
  • Adopt a defensive driving strategy.  Watch the road ahead, anticipate what might happen and be in control, so you are always prepared for the unexpected.

If you are concerned about driver training and education and want your voice to be heard, check out the government's learning to drive consultation online.
