Why communication matters

When you are driving, in the vast majority of occasions there will be at least a fair number of other road users on them at the same time as you. This means that they will be reacting to how YOU drive, your movements on the road and your actions.

In order to allow so many cars on the roads as there are these days, there are the many rules of the road and driving theory that you will learn for the theory test.

However, to communicate with other road users - this is predominantly done through signalling, and of course there is also the horn. It is important that you communicate accurately and correctly through these means with other road users because ultimately so doing can improve your safety on the roads, and indeed the safety of other road users around you too.

Unfortunately, not all drivers are reliable with their communication, and therefore will turn off for instance without indicating. One area where some drivers are particularly lapse is with regard to roundabouts. And whilst they might switch their indicator on to go around a roundabout, they then forget to turn off before exiting, which can be confusing for cars around them.

Therefore as useful as they are don't just rely on signals from other users - also look at their speed and road position. And particularly at potential hazardous places like busy roudabouts, allow plenty of room just in case erratic behaviour occurs around you.
