Tip #21 Road Furniture

How many drivers use street lights to help plan a safe journey? Advanced police drivers use such ‘road furniture’ to gain early clues of what they will encounter ahead, and you should too.

Light positioning can often help when approaching hazards. For example, on corners, lights are always positioned on the outside of the bend. If you look out for such clues, often visible before the road itself, you will be able to see what lies ahead earlier the everyday driver.


Considering road furniture in your forward scans can give you a safety advantage.
