Driving on motorways

  • Plan ahead and make sure you know what junction you are exiting on.
  • Stick within the speed limits, slowing down for roadworks and temporary speed limits.
  • Leave a two-second gap between you and the vehicle in front and increase this to four-seconds in poor weather conditions.
  • Use your fog lights where there is poor visibility.
  • Keep to the left lanes unless you are overtaking.
