    Usage of front, back, behind

    Does "look ahead" mean looking at things in front of you?
    Eg: Look ahead while driving.

    Can I use any of the following expressions to mean the same?
    1. look front
    2. look in front
    3. look at front

    And for looking at things that are beside you, can I use the following expressions?

    1. look on your sides
    2. look sideways

    And for looking at things that are behind you, can I use the following expressions?

    1. look behind
    2. look back

    Are the following sentences correct and mean the same thing?

    1) Watch out for the vehicles that are coming in front of you.
    2) Watch out for the vehicles that are towards you.

    3. look at front


    1. look on your sides
    2. look sideways & <It has 2 meanings>


    1. look behind [you]
