Make the best use of road signs

Monday, 05 March 2012

Recently, drivers were told that the theory test would be changing, meaning that rather than just memorising answers, new drivers would need a better understanding of things such as road signs to pass.

Now, a road charity has urged drivers to reduce the risk of car insurance claims through ensuring they use road signs to help them.

IAM chief examiner Peter Rodger said: "Road signs are often seen as one of those things you only learn for your driving test. While you might not know what each and every sign means, it's always good to brush up on them from time to time."

Tips include looking well ahead to see signs early, and keep a close eye on temporary signs, which will probably be there for a more pressing reason. Other tips include making sure that drivers read signs carefully, and do not panic if they see a sign too late, turning at the next safe place.
