Term describing the practice of anticipating dangers while driving?

When one is driving a car (or any other vehicle for that matter) there is a German term that describes the practice trying to predict situations that might occur. When attempting to translate it I can only come up with descriptions, not with a succinct term. The descriptions revolve around the following: - situational awareness - anticipating dangers - safe driving practice But none of them feel like the right term to me. I've also found *anticipatory driving* being used. But here the context seems to usually be fuel efficiency. I also have the sneaky suspicion that it originated as a translation of the German term I am looking to translate (vorrausschauendes Fahren).
