    Looking left and right. It could save you a nasty injury


    When you were a kid, and perhaps even now, everyone always said you must look left and right whilst crossing the road. It worked as a kid and it is just as relevant now to avoid any nasty road traffic accidents.

    The key to this phrase is that it is suggesting for you to be aware of traffic both ways. This applies to all kinds of situations even when you are looking out for other pedestrians or cyclists who may be walking your way and not looking where they are walking. However, looking left and right will always help to prevent a nasty car collision whether you are the driver or the pedestrian.

    How can looking left and right prevent a road traffic accident?

    By looking left and right, you are always aware of your surroundings, you know who and what is around you and it will help you pre-empt any movement from surrounding vehicles or people. This will greatly reduce the risk of a car accident injury and will greatly improve your hazard perception.

    Not only will looking left and right tell you where everyone is but it will also make you aware of any stationary hazards ahead such as bollards, road works or parked cars you may need to slow down for to avoid a car collision.

    So, by looking both ways, you will dramatically reduce the risk of a car accident and you will be more aware of what is going on to help you have a safer journey.
