PST 10 - Anticipation
If you were to describe what anticipation means, you would probably say to look forward to something.
We eagerly anticipate our holidays, or Christmas or going out somewhere.
This is what you needs to instill in your learners.
If you tell the pupil to stop because a car is pulling out - THAT IS TEACHING ME TO REACT - NOT TO ANTICIPATE
Look at the picture above
- Is the car on the left going to pull out?
- Are his wheels turning or have they stopped?
- Is the woman on the pavement going to walk across the road?
- Is the car on the right passing the van or going into the right turn filter lane?
- As the car ahead on the right pulls out, will the car on the left be forced to brake?
- When we get to the parked vehicles ahead, will there be enough room to get through?
Anticipation of the actions of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians:
This aspect should be covered by the PDI dealing with forward planning and anticipation for the actions of
other road users to suit the varying road, traffic and weather conditions.
Anticipation of Vehicles, Cyclists and Pedestrians
- Is the car signalling to go around the bus or to turn right?
- Are any pedestrians likely to step out from infront of the bus?
- Are the pedestrians about to cross the road on the right?
- Are they aware of the car from behind?
- Is it a windy day - Will the cyclists be blown around?
- Is it a wet day? - Will the cyclist swerve around drain covers, manhole covers or potholes?
All of this needs to be identified and solved BEFORE the situation arises and not afterwards!
