follow too closely and failure to observe the peripheral traffic
the black honda fit/jazz behind possibly already saw the dog from far and/or noticed the left lane car and the volvo slowing down, and therefore braked early, demonstrating defensive driving
:frown:
Ssangyong vision of dog was blocked when it decided to cross (0:15). Nothing much he could anticipate. Just suay and never keep distance

for the benefit of those nv drive overseas one

Most road users and dog lovers would argue that you should carry out an emergency stop for a dog.

However, if you slam your brakes on to avoid hitting a dog or cat, you may present a danger to other road users.

The car behind might crash into the back of your vehicle risking injury to you and the occupants of each vehicle. Your actions could also raise issues around who is responsible for the collision.


The driver who performed the emergency stop might be at fault if they failed to check that it was safe to do so. Equally, the person in the car behind could be to blame for not maintaining a safe distance from the car in fron
t.

The complication with emergency stops is that drivers rarely have time to consider the options. People usually brake as a knee-jerk reflex.

If you have been involved in a collision after taking evasive action to avoid hitting an animal, your case will be considered on its' individual merits.

A court will consider how reasonable your actions were. Was the animal large enough to cause damage to your vehicle? Did your actions present a greater risk of injury to your passengers or other road users?
