One-way streets and systems

The first step in safely negotiating any one-way street is to notice we are on a one-way street, otherwise we may find ourselves in the wrong lane or position for the direction we hope to travel in. This is a fairly simple matter of making sure we are taking note of all the clues, signs and markings. In truth we can’t hope to become a safe and competent rider without paying good attention to the markings and signs. Once we have decided to change lane or position in this environment, we should use the Observation, Signal and Manoeuvre routine to ensure we are doing this safely and letting other road users know what we intend to do next. Turning right from the end of any one-way street will mean we need to position ourselves over to the right-hand lane or position, and left position for a left turn.
