Dangers Lane Corner

Not keeping Lane:

Oncoming

Be alert to oncoming vehicles going around the corner and intruding into your lane.

Look out for those traveling in the same direction as you and when going round a corner, then encroaching into your lane.

Not Turning

Here we look at situations where a vehicle continues straight instead of turning to follow a bend or compulsory corner.

☠️ Dangers of multi-lane corners

When traveling around a corner, it is important to maintain your lane and not encroach into another lane. Similarly, it is equally important for other vehicles to not encroach into your lane. If another vehicle does encroach into your lane while you are traveling around a corner, there are several potential dangers that you should be aware of:

  • Collision: The most immediate danger of another vehicle encroaching into your lane while traveling around a corner is the risk of collision. If the other vehicle comes too close or even collides with your vehicle, it can cause serious damage and injury.

  • Loss of control: When another vehicle suddenly encroaches into your lane, it can cause you to swerve or make sudden evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision. This can cause you to lose control of your vehicle and potentially lead to a crash.

  • Limited visibility: When traveling around a corner, your visibility may already be limited, especially if it is a sharp turn or there are obstacles in the way. If another vehicle encroaches into your lane, it can further limit your visibility and make it difficult to see the road ahead, increasing the risk of a collision.

  • Increased stress: Encountering a vehicle encroaching into your lane can be a stressful and anxiety-inducing experience, which can distract you from focusing on driving safely and increase the likelihood of making a mistake.

To prevent these dangers, it is important to always drive defensively and maintain a safe following distance. Additionally, it is important to be aware of your surroundings, especially when traveling around corners, and anticipate the actions of other drivers.

If you do encounter a vehicle encroaching into your lane, try to remain calm and take evasive action, if necessary, but do so safely and without overreacting.
