The next time you’re behind the wheel and feel you need to concentrate, consider talking out loud and describe your journey and surroundings in great detail. Sounds crazy perhaps, but it works because you have to concentrate to do this well, so you can’t be thinking about other things. Again, if you’re on an A or B road try honing your skills. The aim is to be doing precisely the lower speed limit as you enter a lower speed zone, for example, a 30mph zone. Think of this as a curtain – when you drive through this curtain into the lower speed zone you should be doing the new speed precisely. You should only speed up when you pass through that curtain again, into a faster zone.
