Stay Safe On The Road

    Posted by Ben Davidson about 2 months ago

    When driving in your vehicle, one thing that you always need to think about, is staying safe. It's about the choices and decision that you make, and thinking about the outcome ahead of time so that you're always ready. It's the little things like approaching a junction and keeping an eye on any oncoming vehicles before you even think about continuing - that way you're ready to stop if need be. Driving isn't something that should ever be taken lightly. It's a privilege, not a right.


    There are so many things that you need to think about, and in the beginning it can be rather overwhelming trying to remember everything, but know that in time, it will all come naturally and your mind and body will know what to do. This doesn't mean that you can disengage though, you always need to be present in case you have to react quickly. So you never want to drop the ball.


    Unfortunately, accidents can and will happen, so it's always wise to think about the possibility of having a car crash attorney in the event of an accident. But until then - know exactly how to stay safe on the roads.


    Here's how.


    Don't speed.


    There is always a reason for speed limits. Certain areas will require you to go slower because it's on a road that's close to houses, or schools, or anywhere else where there is a lot of pedestrians around. So it's extremely important that you stick to what the signs are telling you. You may be in a rush one day which makes you want to go quicker so you can get to your destination on time, but that may just be the day that you go a little too fast and as a result, you're not able to slow down quick enough and end up hitting something, or someone.


    Don't drink and drive.


    You should never ever drink when you're under the influence. A common problem with this is that people will drink, but feel absolutely fine to drive, but this is because their judgment isn't what it usually is. Even if you're walking in a straight line and talking without a slur, if you're over the limit - you're over the limit, and that means no driving. Alcohol or drugs can make you feel more confident, which can leave you taking silly risks. It can also affect your vision, like driving over the lines or not noticing the motorbike behind you.


    Don't text.


    This means a lot of things, like answering your phone, texting, and making unnecessary videos to upload on your social media. Phones are such a big distraction in general everyday life already, so to pair that up with driving is a
    _very dangerous game. Remember that while you're filming yourself lip sync to your favourite tune, someone may be crossing the road in front of you, and because you're too occupied in getting the right angle, you don't even see them walk out. It only takes a second.
