I know a fair few individuals that have failed their hazard perception test. Since we’re mentioning driving; I failed my driving test for bibbing the conductor prior to him jumping in the car. I guess the nerves got the better of me. If for some reason you are wondering: you’re only meant to use your horn for emergencies – not for signalling over the instructor.
What of irregular drivers?
In comparison to my minimalistic driving skills, there is no doubt that being an F1 driver takes a lot of skill. Especially considering the speed they drive at, and the reactions needed to ensure they’re safe. Im sure being one is a nerve racking experience.
As such, having lightning fast reactions is a must for any F1 drivers, as one mistake can make or break their race.
Nonetheless, if like myself you find yourself occasionally day dreaming, and also loosing concentration at times – being an F1 driver probably isn’t going to be your desired occupation. But that shouldn’t stop you testing your reaction times.
Test your reflexes
Goldsmiths in conjunction with one of my favourite watch brands – Tag Heuer have recently created a game to test your reflexes. The game lasts 20 seconds and aims at testing your reaction speed. Currently, my personal high score is 29 however I do have the disadvantage of using a trackpad instead of a mouse.
They’re also offering the chance for one lucky individual to walk away with a £150 voucher.
To enter the competition please follow the rafflecopter guidelines below. To increase your chances of winning you’re also able to rack up points by:
