Road Safety Tips all Drivers should know:
No mobile phone while driving:
Every activity using your mobile phone while driving can distract your attention that could lead to an accident.
Keep your distance:
Always keep a two second or imaginary two cars as gap between you and any vehicle in front.
Use car seats:
Child and baby seats should be fitted properly and checked every trip.
Do not think you are the only one who uses the road; use your side and rear mirrors regularly.
Share if you can:
For long trips, share the driving responsibilities with someone else. This will allow you to keep an eye on each other while driving, and also enable you to nap without losing time.
Belt up in the back:
In a collision an unbelted rear passenger can kill or seriously injure the driver or a front seat passenger.
Don’t drink and drive:
Drinking alcohol and driving simply do not go together. When drinking alcohol, driving becomes dangerous and is potentially lethal.
Children are most of the times reckless and often act impulsively, take extra care when driving in school zones and playgrounds.
Take a break:
Tiredness is considered one of the major factors of road accidents. When driving long hours, have a break and rest for at least 15 minutes every 3 hours.
