A fifth of new drivers are involved in an accident during their first year on the road. What If? is an admirable 35-minute video targeted at beginner drivers. It takes viewers through a set of recognisable conditions - approaching a railway bridge or a hidden dip in the road, being followed by an impatient pursuer - and gets them to think about an increasingly complex range of hazardous possibilities. Thecamera gives a realistic feel of the view from behind the steering wheel, and offers many opportunities to simulate the skills of scanning, recognition and decisive action.

What If? (video and booklet) is available from WH Smith and Halfords, for pound;12.99 (pound;2.85 pamp;p). It can also be ordered from DSAMerchandise: tel, 0870 241 4523; fax, 01709 881 673; or visit www.ask-what-if.com
