My name’s Pat. My name’s Connor. I’m Alex Johnstone. Billy Lambert. My name’s James Monks. I’m seventeen and I can’t wait to take advantage of the twenty hours the driving course is going to give me. So whenever we’re driving, we’re always trying to bring those things that are outside of our control, inside our circle of control. So you’ve been out with your friends and they’re all really pushing you for a lift home. What are the risks in this scenario? You’re tired. It’s a late night. Distractions on the road. So looking around at who’s doing what. See these cars in front of us, who’s behind you. He’s quite anxious, isn’t he, this guy behind you. So people try and manage to do a whole heap of things when they’re driving. So they’re not just focused on their driving, what they’re doing is getting themselves quite scattered. It’s hard for our brain to focus on everything. You’re almost taking a step back, trying to track everything, and get stuff out of your peripheral vision. The more things we try and do when we drive, the harder it becomes. Nicely down here. Three second gap. That’s what we’re looking for. So all the time we’re reading, we’re seeing what’s happening, we’re following and working out what other cars are doing, what hazards are out there. And that changes every scene that we go through, every street.
