When approaching a bend the first assessment you need to make is how sharp the bend is. If you get this wrong you may find yourself skidding and losing control of your car.

From your assessment of how sharp the bend is comes the next question – is my current speed appropriate?

Remember the golden rule – you must be able to stop, on your side of the road, in the distance you can see to be clear.

To help you assess these points correctly, you need to pay attention to your surroundings. As you near the bend look out for road signs and markings which signal the direction of the bend.
