How To Properly Make a Right Turn
One of the most common problems among driving students are making the right right-turns. The task is simple for expert drivers but to newbies, it can cause a major setback. Step-by-step the task could be simple: signal right, glance at the mirrors, and if clear then steer the wheel to the right. Amidst its simplicity, it is most of the time done wrong.
Using the signal lights before making a turn is very important – it gives other drivers a clue on your next move. There are also other drivers who failed to use the signal; they trust their luck that jeopardizes them and other drivers. Note that you might surprise other drivers that cause them to jerk, and if too late to brake may cause an accident. However, during the test it is a minor problem. But repeating those errors may result to failure on the test.
A Go signal or a green light on the traffic light while attempting to make a turn is also a problem for practicing drivers. That is because they tend to stop while the traffic is flowing for the sole reason: they can’t estimate the speed and distance to make a good turn. As a result, drivers at the back may also do an immediate stop that could cause collision. It could also cause traffic.
Scanning is also recurring problem among new drivers. Most of the time, they get surprised by a pedestrian or a parked car while making a turn. That problem causes them to make a quick or impulsive reaction that may cause collision with other vehicles. And for sure this problem might disappoint you on your test results.
Another problem posed by newbies are making turns that are too stiff or tight. This problem is obvious when they make their turns without having enough distance between the car and the curb. As a result, they hit it. During the road test, having this error would lead to failure.
