1 Don’t use the mobilephone while driving
Every activity using your mobile phone while driving can distract you from the road and that could lead to an accident.
2 Belt up in the back
In a collision, an unbelted rear passenger can kill or seriously injure the front occupants.
3 Don’t drink and drive
Consuming alcohol and driving simply do not go together. When drinking alcohol, driving becomes dangerous and is potentially lethal.
4. Slow down
At 50km/h, you are twice more likely to hit and kill a pedestrian than at 30km/h
5. Keep an eye out for children
Children often act impulsively or do not possess the understanding be vary around roads. Take extra care when driving around school zones, playground or housing areas.
6. Take a break
Tiredness is considered one of the major factors behind road accidents. If driving for long periods take a 15 minute break every three hours of driving.
7. 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 enable you to rest without losing time on the road.
Do not think that you are the only one using the roads. Always lock at your side and rear view mirrors to keep an eye on the vehicles around you.
9. Use baby seats
Younger children and babies should be seated or placed in proper baby seats that are equipped with ISOFIX mounts to the car.
10. Keep your distance
Always keep a two second or imaginary two cars as gap between you and any vehicle in front.
