Narrator – “Stop at the top of the intersection, ensuring you are out of the main traffic flow. Keep scanning for oncoming traffic as well as the road you’re turning into. Once there is a safe gap and you’re sure the road you’re turning into is clear, do a head check to the right before you move off. Do the right things, in the right order, and you’re good to go.”
