After being involved in a road traffic incident it is easy to lose confidence and the thought of getting back in the driving seat can be quite daunting. This week’s tips give advice on how to cope after the aftermath of a driving incident, from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards Richard Gladman.
Richard said: “Even a minor collision can play on your mind but it is important to learn from the experience. A major part in the human factors around driving is the ability to self-evaluate your driving and make a conscious decision to improve. Even a collision where we have to accept some or all of the blame should be taken as an opportunity learn and improve. Recognising that help is needed is a major step to asking for it.”
