TIPS FOR SAFE DRIVING AND PREVENTING ACCIDENTS ON THE ROAD



Respect the right on each way

If you hurry to discover a vehicle, do not be headstrong and clear the way, even if you are not legally right. While the other driver might be a tyrant claiming to give in, it's better to let him through. Do not block the vehicle's path by moving in front of it or obstructing the passage in any way. This is
dangerous and increases the risk of accidents.
Turning traffic on and off is also a serious security risk. Always remember that when it comes to driving, the most important thing is to reach your destination safely.

Do not exceed the speed limit

 Exceeding a given speed limit is not only illegal but also dangerous. Driving at a speed of 60 km / h on a road where the limit is 50 km / h can save you 20 minutes, but it also increases the risk of accidents.
The faster you move, the longer it takes for the car to bid when you brake. This also reduces the time you need to respond to the unexpected. For example, an out-of-control car or an animal crossing the road. The increased transmission of energy due to the higher momentum can lead to terrible injuries.
So choose a speed that comes as close as possible to the rest of the traffic without exceeding the speed limit. If the rest of the traffic moves faster than you like, stay to the left of the lane and the faster vehicles out of the way. If you need to overtake a vehicle that is moving slower than you, do so from the right. Make your intentions clear on the basis of the indicators before you overtake.

Pay attention to the road


Many accidents happen because a driver does not pay attention to what is happening on the road. Any vehicle, whatever its size, can be the cause of an accident. Also remember that you can not rely on other drivers to respect the rules and protect you. So be careful and make sure you have plenty of room to maneuver your vehicle out of a potentially dangerous situation. This would help if you are not using your mobile phone or listening to music at full volume.
Try to anticipate what other drivers might do in the situation, especially on open roads or in heavy traffic. It is always better to remain cautious. Be careful when approaching traffic lights, breakages or service roads. Pressed motorists tend to join the main road without controlling the flow of traffic. In addition, on a busy road, such as a shopping mall, watch out for cars coming out of the car park. Search for empty spaces in the traffic lines so that avoidance measures can be taken. Slow down if you see the traffic in front of you piling up.

ALWAYS THINK TO WEAR THE SEAT BELT



The safety belt is the most important safety device in your car. A seat belt may seem insignificant, but it can save your life. The force and sudden movement in a collision can fatally injure a person (rib cage, lungs and heart against the dashboard or steering wheel) or even throw the driver out of the car if he is not tied up.


SLOWLY ON WATERWAYS AND IN BAD WEATHER


 The most reasonable thing to do in adverse weather conditions, such as heavy rain or fog, is to slow down. Driving at high speeds with heavy rain can lead to hydroplaning of your car (climb a thin water film between the tires and the road so that there is no more contact with the road).
Make sure your car tires have the correct air pressure, because over-inflation of tires reduces the contact area with the road, which results in a loss of rolling friction on wet surfaces. If your car’s tires are inflated, release some air. Similarly, visibility is significantly reduced in thick fog, and it becomes difficult to estimate the distances between vehicles.
