Hello folks, today we will be looking at MELT in our bid to get you to drive safer for your sake and for the sake of your loved ones.
MELT: This is short for Minimum Eye Lead Time. In urban areas, you should be scanning the road 12-15 seconds ahead – or about one city block. On the highway, it’s 20-30 seconds – or as far as the eye can see. Vision is a driver’s first line of defence, and it’s always better to anticipate hazards rather than react to them.
