Hazards resource now available
A practical manual which guides car drivers through a series of hazards is now available to buy.
‘Hazard Ahead’, by driving instructor Andy Hall, uses ‘through the windscreen’ photographs linked to explanatory text. It covers driving on country roads, in built-up areas and on motorways. A final comprehensive set of questions tests the driver’s knowledge.
The book contains more than 360 pictures of real events on the road. It attempts to put the reader in the driver's seat so that they can get the feel of what is going on ahead and behind them.
Hazard Ahead costs £18 including P&P. Click here for more information.
