Instead of simply forgetting ‘oops factor’ moments, take a moment at the end of your journey to think about why a particular incident occurred. It may be all you need to identify the reason and adapt your observation or concentration techniques to prevent a similar situation happening again. Try to learn from your mistake and make yourself think back and wonder why you didn’t see another vehicle or why you misjudged a vehicle’s speed or distance. This will help improve your driving in much the same way that elite sports players analyse their performance. It’s not about apportioning blame, but recognising situations that could lead to an ‘oops moment’ and what could you do differently next time to reduce risk to yourself and those around you.
