“This is a little gem of a book giving simple and clear advice for safe driving.
Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a short broken lines and a longer broken lines?  Have you even noticed the difference?
This and other road symbols are explained simply – many with photos – along with things to look out for and be aware of.  All of which could help avoid accidents.
However experienced, or under-experienced, you are you will find much of interest in this book and lead to more awareness as you drive.”    CAM


“Fifty pages of practical tips and advice that even a driver like myself, with 60+ years of experience, found not only useful but essential in today’s driving environment.   I wish I had this handed to me the day I passed my test.” FD


“The whole family found this book extremely useful by refreshing our “tired” road safety memories and hopefully making us better drivers” Jane Summers 25/4/17
