  • Target

    A target is a fixed object located 12-20 seconds ahead of your vehicle, in the center of the path of travel. The target is what the driver steers toward. It can be a car, a block ahead, a traffic signal, the crest of a hill, etc. Having a target helps new drivers anticipate a number of traffic situations ahead, rather than monitor the road immediately in front of the vehicle.
