2007 edition of Roadcraft

The ninth impression (2004) of the 1997 edition of Roadcraft has, on page 121, a section on reducing the tightness of a bend. The 2007 edition, however, omits this section. The cornering chapter says that we can position for safety, view and stability. The review at the end of the chapter ays that "we have looked at how to reduce the curvatur of the bend" (penultimate bullet point). However I can find nothing about reducing the curvature of a bend in the body of the text. Have they simply forgotten to print it?

Anybody have any inside information on what happened?

Re: 2007 edition of Roadcraft

No inside information just supposition on my part.

Perhaps they woke up to the fact that too many drivers and their trainers were using the former guidance as an excuse to cross white lines inappropriately.

I personally think the differences between the current editions of Roadcraft and Essential Skills are so small now they are hardly worth mentioning. Unlike the gaping void that was so apparent, of say 10 years ago.

Re: 2007 edition of Roadcraft

Do you mean the authors of 'Essential Skills' have seen the light?
Visa Versa
Or have they just got closer together by accident.

Re: 2007 edition of Roadcraft

I agree totally with you Dimmy.

Im sure you read 'Driving' magazine and theres a couple of good replys in their.

The response about the write up of the new Roadcraft is very good.

The bottom line is as being mentioned 'Roadcraft' is the preferred read for Post Test trainers, try getting someone whos been driving for 20 years to read the DSA essential skills, when there 17 year old son/daughter is reading the same thing.

If it helps the cause and as we know both books are the same anyway it cannot be a bad thing.
