How to be a better driver in the city

ROAD safety charity the IAM is offering weekly motoring tips from Britain’s top advanced driver, Peter Rodger. This week, he is advising on driving in and around busy city centres, with a specific focus on the capital.

• When traffic’s heavy people get frustrated and sometimes behave unpredictably. Be wary and anticipate the actions of road users around you.

lExpect to see large groups of cyclists and pedestrians. Give these more vulnerable road users plenty of room, and don’t attempt to overtake cyclists on narrow or parked up roads.

lBe on your guard for pedestrians, who may not check the road properly before starting to cross.

lListen to traffic updates, and have a plan in mind for an alternative route, as road closures and diversions are a common occurrence.
