Assumptions behind the wheel

There are essentially two kinds of assumptions we can make when we are driving:

  1. What other drivers are going to do; and
  2. What conditions we will encounter during our drive – will it always be the same each time?

The first assumption can create all sorts of problems if we act upon those assumptions.
