Watching others whilst on the road

You can't rely on other road users not to do something wrong. Whilst most articles on this site tend to focus on cars, there are other and particularly vulnerable road uesrs out there.

These are in most cases pedestrians, and also bicyclists. Among pedestrians, elderly and young children are more vulnerable, and if there are young kids around you always have to be careful that they don't suddenly enter the road without warning.

If there is a pedestrian who looks like they are going to cross in front of you but are cutting it too close for comfort, then whilst they might be doing something stupid, slow down, because clearly the last thing you want is a potential accident to occur.

You also need to be careful of cyclists. Many accidents are caused where a car goes to overtake a cyclist, forcing the car to go on the other side of the road, then a car appears, and the car swerves back in, sometimes hitting the cyclist which clearly is a very vulnerable road user. So only ever overtake a cyclist when you are 100% sure it is safe - remember that whilst you might be frustrated going more slowly than you would like following one that is far better than alternatives that include having an accident.
