Here are 10 ways to help make Fanwood roads safer.
Buckle up! It's the law.
- Buckle up with a properly fastened seat belt no matter how short the journey.
- Protect children travelling in your vehicle. Use child safety seats according to manufacturer's instructions.
- Make sure teenagers buckle up.
Keep your hands on the wheel
- Keep your mind on the task at hand. Pull over to talk if you are using a cellular phone. Driving isn't the time to be shaving, putting on make-up, or eating your lunch.
- Check traffic in all directions before entering an intersection.
- Watch for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and children playing.
Obey the speed limit
- Slow down when road and weather conditions are poor.
Give yourself a space cushion
- Leave space around your vehicle so you have room to stop or maneuver in an emergency.
Always check your blind spot
- Look in your mirrors and shoulder check before you change lanes.
- Be aware of other drivers blind spots. Can they see you?
Yield the right-of-way
- If in doubt, let the other driver go first.
Reduce your risks
- Practice courtesy at all times. Share the road. Don't cut people off or make sudden lane changes.
- Obey traffic control devices. A stop sign means come to a complete STOP.
- Be cautious when approaching intersections.
- A yellow light means clear the intersection - NOT try to beat the light.
- Make yourself visible. Day or night, always turn your headlights on, use your running lights, and make sure your tail lights are working..
- Use your signal lights so others on the road know what you're going to do.
- Don't follow too close.
Make the smart choice -- Drive alert
- Alcohol, medication, fatigue or stress affect your driving. Drive only when you are fully alert.
Have your vehicle serviced regularly
- A well-maintained vehicle is a safe vehicle.
