behind the wheel? Are you in the same class as top-rated police drivers? Should you, like them, always leave a safe gap between you and the vehicle in front?
Britain's leading driverbased road safety organisation, the Guild of Experienced Motorists, has produced a simple fun test, that will make you stop and think about all your driving skills.
Through its charitable arm it is giving away copies of its Reaction Timer timer,
n radiographic timing device that functions as an automatic exposure timer and a switch to control the current to the high-tension transformer and filament transformer. The face of the timer is calibrated in seconds and fractions of seconds. Cards to road safety officers, driving instructors and others involved with driver education.
The cards are also being offered to clubs, societies and pubs to get social gatherings or quiz nights off to a lively start.
Teams of two can use the simple test to indicate how fast their partner's reaction is. A chart indicates how well they perform.
