Hazard perception is an important part of safe driving. It is the ability to spot ‘clues’ to potential hazards before you arrive at the hazard itself.
By spotting clues to hazards means you can change your driving style early to reduce your chances of being involved in a collision. By not spotting the clues to hazards means you end up relying on your ability to brake, swerve or react to the hazard itself and that can often be too late.
