How to use road junctions. 26/06/13

It's always a good idea to refresh your knowledge of the Highway Code from time to time.

Knowing the rules of the road not only makes you a better driver, it also means that if you are involved in an accident you are less likely to be the person at-fault.

The rules for road junctions are:

  • Look out for cyclists, motorcyclists, powered wheelchairs/mobility scooters and pedestrians as they are not always easy to see. They may not have seen or heard you if you are approaching from behind

  • You should look out for pedestrians crossing the road into which you are turning. Give way if they have started to cross, as they have priority

  • Long vehicles may be turning at a junction ahead; so be aware that they may have to use the whole width of the road to make the turn

  • Be extra careful when horse riders are on the road, as they may take a different line on the road than that of a motor vehicle

  • Never assume when waiting at a junction, that a vehicle approaching from the right and signalling left will actually make the turn. Wait to make sure

  • Always check all around before emerging. Only cross or join a road when there is a gap large enough for you to do so safely
