Is turning right into a side road potentially more dangerous than you think…. and is there anything you could do about it?
We often don’t think twice when turning right into a side road, do we? You go through the checking of mirrors, a signal, and then slow or wait opposite the junction, looking for a gap in oncoming traffic… that’s it isn’t it?
But how about the traffic behind, especially if your junction is just around a bend or over the crest of a hill? Many crashes happen when a car hits the back of another………!! Is there anything you can do about it?
Well, if you keep your wheels straight and keep an eye on your rear-view mirror, you might have the option to accelerate and drive away from the situation!! No crash and no being pushed into oncoming traffic!! Phew!! ?
