Have you checked your mirrors today?

Have you checked your mirrors today?

If you only glance at your car mirrors occasionally, you could miss out on vital information that could prevent you from crashing: a driver/motorcyclist overtaking you, a cyclist moving up the inside or a pedestrian crossing the road behind you.

You should:
• Use all mirrors to check the road is clear, before moving off.
• Use your mirrors frequently so that you always know what is behind and to each side of you.
• Use them in good time, before you signal or change direction or speed.
• Be aware that mirrors do not cover all areas and that there will be blind spots. You will need to look round and check.

Make MIRRORS-SIGNAL-MANOEUVRE part of your daily routine no matter how long you have been driving or how experienced you think you are – it will reflect on your driving.
