Sharing The Road With Other Road Users

July 19, 2017 at 4:17 AM

One of the keys to being a good driver is learning how to share the road with other road users.

You need to know how to drive safely around other road users that are more vulnerable like pedestrians, cyclists and moped riders.

It can be hard to spot these other road users as they are smaller and they mostly use a different part of the road, thus the need to be extra careful.

Some of the places where you might find it difficult to spot other road users include:

  • Intersections
  • Driveways
  • Roundabouts
  • Carparks

Always remember to check and double check your mirrors and blind spots when driving in these areas to avoid an accident.


Other areas where you should be ready to slow down or stop, especially for pedestrians include:

  • Schools
  • Shopping centres
  • Bus stops
  • Pedestrian crossings
