Anticipation of other drivers
Gerry helps learner drivers to learn how to anticipate actions of drivers and pedestrians and how to deal with them in a defensive manner. The video deals with traffic lights and relative lanes, using the mirrors correctly when overtaking, reacting to signals given by other drivers, pedestrians on the road, and how to deal with cyclists safely.
