Junctions

Approaching junctions in a safe, logical and systematic way is critical to the safety of any motorist and this is particularly true for motorcyclists where our size and vulnerability means there are some special considerations, such as the way we use observations and positioning. Understanding the different types of junctions and what is expected of us and of the other road users will prevent either rushing in when there is not enough time or periods of hesitation while we work out what to do. It goes without saying a good understanding of the Highway Code is essential in negotiating Junctions accurately and safely, with a wide range of signs, lines and markings being used approaching and around junctions.
