Why are motorcyclists considered vulnerable road users?
HintPedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are referred to as vulnerable road users because of their unprotected state. Car drivers are protected by the vehicle shell and other safety features such as airbags.
Why should the driver, on the side road, look out for motorcyclists at junctions?
HintBecause of their smaller size, cyclists and motorcyclists are more difficult to see. They can easily be hidden from your view by cars parked near a junction or your windscreen pillar. It can also be difficult to judge a motorcyclists speed as they can often be traveling faster than they appear.
In this video, who can cross the chevrons to overtake other vehicles, when it’s safe to do so?
HintWhite chevrons or white diagonal stripes in the centre of the road are often used to separate traffic lanes or to protect traffic turning right. There are 2 types: 1. The area is bordered by a solid white line. In this instance, you MUST not enter the area except in an emergency. 2. The area is bordered by a broken white line. In this instance you can enter the area only if it is necessary and if it is safe to do so.
