A developing hazard can be anything from a pedestrian stepping out into the road, a child running between parked cars, or a car exiting a driveway.
As part of improving your Hazard Perception skills, it’s essential that you learn to look out for the early warning signs of a developing hazard.
You must also be able to understand how different situations can potentially develop into a more serious hazard.
A good example of this is; you see a ball roll out across the road ahead of you which could potentially be closely followed by a young child. The sooner you learn to spot a developing hazard, the quicker you can react and avoid unnecessary action that could potentially cause a serious collision.
