    Scanning

    Scanning your surroundings (keeping your eyes moving) includes keeping a safe distance around your vehicle. When another driver makes a mistake, you need time to react. Give yourself this reaction time by keeping enough space on all sides of your vehicle. This space will give you room to brake or maneuver if necessary.

    Know What Is Ahead

    To avoid last minute moves, scan the road 10–15 seconds ahead of your vehicle so you can see hazards early. Constantly staring at the vehicle or road right in front of your vehicle is dangerous. As you scan ahead, be alert for vehicles around you. Use your mirrors. Know what is behind you, so you can prepare for what is ahead.

    Know the areas of your vehicle. Green is What Is Ahead? Blue is What Is At Your Side? Yellow is Blind Spots/No Zones. Red is What Is Behind You?

    Take in the whole scene–If you only look at the middle of the road, you will miss what is happening on the side of the road and behind you. Scanning helps you to see:

    Cars, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, and animals that may be in the road by the time you reach them.

    Signs warning of problems ahead.

    Signs giving you directions.

    Before changing lanes, look into your rearview mirror for nearby vehicles and over your shoulder to check for blind spots (see the yellow area in the image above).

    The shaded areas are your blind spots.

    Watch for hazards–Look beyond the vehicle ahead of you. Do not develop a “fixed stare.” Check your rearview mirrors so you know the position of vehicles near you. On the freeway, be ready for changes in traffic conditions. Watch for signals from other drivers. Expect merging vehicles at on-ramps and interchanges. Be prepared for rapid changes in road conditions and traffic flow. Know which lanes are clear so you can use them, if necessary.

    Do not be a tailgater! 

    Many drivers follow too closely (tailgate) and are not able to see as far ahead as they should because the vehicle ahead blocks their view.

    If a vehicle merges in front of you too closely, take your foot off the accelerator. This gives space between you and the vehicle ahead, without having to slam on your brakes or swerve into another lane. To avoid tailgating, use the “3 second rule”: when the vehicle ahead of you passes a certain point, such as a sign, count “one-thousand-one, one-thousand- two, one-thousand-three.” This takes approximately 3 seconds. If you pass the same point before you finish counting, you are following too closely.

    You should allow for more space when::

    A tailgater is behind you. Allow extra space ahead and do not brake suddenly. Slow down gradually or merge into another lane to prevent a collision with the tailgater!

    Driving on slippery roads.

    Following motorcyclists or bicyclists on wet or icy roads, metal surfaces (e.g., bridge gratings, railroad tracks, etc.), and gravel. Motorcyclists and bicyclists can fall easily on these surfaces.

    The driver behind you wants to pass. Allow room in front of your vehicle so the driver will have space to move in front of you.

    Towing a trailer or carrying a heavy load. The extra weight makes it harder to stop.

    Following large vehicles that block your view ahead. The extra space allows you to see around the vehicle.

    You see a bus, school bus, or a placarded vehicle at railroad crossings. These vehicles must stop at railroad crossings.

    Merging onto a freeway.

    Know What Is at Your Side

    Any time you come to a place where people may cross or enter your path or a line of traffic meets another, you should look to the left and right sides of your vehicle to make sure no one is coming. Always look to each side of your vehicle at intersections, crosswalks, and railroad crossings.

    At intersections:

    Look both ways even if other traffic has a red traffic signal light or a stop sign.

    Look to the left first, since vehicles coming from the left are closer to you than vehicles coming from the right.

    Look to the right.

    Take one more look to the left in case there is a pedestrian, bicyclist, or vehicle you did not see the first time.

    Do not rely on traffic signal lights. Some drivers do not obey traffic signal lights. Before you enter an intersection, look left, right, and ahead for approaching traffic

    To maintain enough space on each side of your vehicle:

    Do not stay in another driver’s blind spot. The other driver may not see your vehicle and could change lanes and hit you.

    Avoid driving directly alongside other vehicles on multilane streets with or without traffic in the opposite direction. Another driver might crowd your lane or change lanes without looking and crash into you. Drive either ahead of or behind the other vehicle.

    If possible and when safe, make room for vehicles entering freeways even though you have the right-of-way.
