|yes sumit here I mean it is exactly the anticipation. You must anticipate what the other driver may do. You cannot expect the signal and other driving action from other driver. So you must be extra cautious in that case. Many times we may come across making vehicles left or right turn or stopping without showing the signals by the drivers. So, with the movement of other vehicle you must have some prediction that the vehicle going in front of you may turn or stop. That knowledge I called driving psychology.|
