  • GIVE WAY TO ONCOMING TRAFFIC

    Turning right into a side road, also referred to as right turn, major to minor, is often a difficult turn for new riders. This is because your road position is to the right of the lane and closer to the centre white line. 

    There is an added complication of giving way to oncoming traffic, you will also need to be aware of what is behind with good rearward observations too. You need to be aware of impatient road users who may try to overtake or undertake you.

    As with all junctions, the OSMPSL routine must be used, along with slow speed control the closer you get to the junction. You must ensure you are in the correct gear, at the correct speed and in the correct position. 

    GIVE WAY TO ONCOMING TRAFFIC
  • OTHER HAZARDS 

    Also take into account other hazards around you, such as the road surface, drain covers, parked vehicles and pedestrians. You may need to adopt a different road position to compensate for other dangers.

    If it is clear carry out a lifesaver over the right shoulder, about two car lengths from the turn. This gives time to look forward, assess the road ahead, still giving enough space to either turn safely into the road or stop. If you decide to stop, another lifesaver is essential before you proceed.

    NB. Check with your motorcycle trainer for the definition of ‘swan-necking’ and the problems it will cause.
