To ensure best practice and safe driving at all times, Seb Goldin, CEO of RED Driving has revealed the rules you should modify.

Box intersections and right turn rules

Most drivers know that they must not enter a yellow box until the road or lane exit is clear.

Similarly, at signaled roundabouts, drivers cannot enter the box unless they can cross without stopping.

While most drivers are familiar with these rules, there is a little-known exception that people often forget: drivers are allowed to enter the box and wait there when their only hurdle to complete the turn is due to oncoming traffic.

Traffic junctions are controlled by traffic lights

Unsurprisingly, and in accordance with general traffic light guidelines, you can only continue past the white ‘stop’ line (solid white line, wider than other road markings) if the light is green .

When the amber light appears, the driver should stop at the line and not proceed, unless stopping suddenly will cause a collision.

The best advice is that, as drivers approach a green light, they should continue to check their mirror and anticipate that it is likely to change, so be ready to stop.

Similarly, drivers should not move forward across a white line when a red light is on, even when trying to make way for an ambulance or other blue light responder.

Instead, drivers should stay where they are and allow specially trained drivers to calculate the best route around.

Drivers may proceed only at a green traffic light if there is room to safely cross the intersection or if they are preparing to make a right turn.

Bus lane

As its name suggests, a bus lane is a lane normally restricted to buses on certain days and times, although on some routes a bus lane may also be used. by taxis, bicycles and even motorbikes.

Bus lanes are often used to speed up public transport that would be hampered by traffic congestion.

Therefore, unless otherwise indicated, you should not drive in the bus lane during operation and be fined if found to do so with the typical bus lane fines is £160 in London and £70 outside the capital.

Most bus lanes will have a sign indicating when the bus lane is open, however, if there is no time indication, drivers should assume the lane is open 24 hours a day. days and will be fined if the person is not allowed to use the means of transport.

Although there will be a fine, motorists will not receive any points on their license if they drive by mistake.
