Are your drivers too confident? Find out!

Overconfidence among drivers can pose significant risks on the roadways. While confidence is generally seen as a positive trait, an excessive level of it can lead to complacency and a disregard for the potential dangers associated with operating large vehicles. In this course we will look at who the most vulnerable road users are, how over-represented they are in road traffic accident statistics and what the Highway Code says about them. We will review the importance of good all round observation and look at the places and times where mistakes are most likely to occur.
