When driving, there is nothing more important than your passengers', and fellow road users’ safety. Whether you are planning on taking a well-earned vacation or are going about your daily business, you need to ensure that your vehicle is in a safe and roadworthy condition. Here are some vehicle safety tips that might just save your life.
Your seatbelt is one of the most important safety devices in your vehicle. Before you set off, ensure that all your passengers are wearing their seatbelts properly. Check your seatbelts on a regular basis to ensure that they are working properly when needed. To see if they are working as they should, give them a firm tug to see if they are stopping. If not, get them repaired as soon as possible.
Rather than risk driving in conditions where there is poor visibility such as heavy rain, fog, or hail, stop your vehicle at a safe location and wait for conditions to improve before continuing your trip. It is important to allow for extra travel time on account of the weather. Never try to make up time on the road.
Always stick to the speed limit when you drive. The faster you are driving, the more severe the impact upon crashing or hitting something or someone will be. Speed also places unnecessary strain on your tyres and brakes, as well as giving you less time to react if you need to take evasive action.
Many avoidable accidents happen when drivers do not follow the rules of the road. Pay close attention to the road signs around you, especially in unfamiliar locations. When traffic lights are out, be sure to pay attention to the instructions of the traffic officers or pointsmen on duty. If there are none, proceed with extreme caution.
It is a proven fact that no person can fully focus on driving while they are using their phones. Your phone is a distraction. Do not text and drive! Rather wait until you have arrived before you text or call someone. Alternatively, find a safe spot such as a filling station or roadside stop to park before texting or calling.
Alcohol significantly impacts your ability to make decisions while driving. If you have been drinking, wait until you have sobered up before driving. You can also appoint a designated driver to be responsible enough not to drink when you are out with your friends. If you are alone and have had too much to drink, do not be too proud to make use of an e-hailing service such as Uber.
All vehicles driving on South Africa’s roads must be mechanically and legally roadworthy. Make sure that your vehicle’s license is current and that your vehicle exceeds the minimum mechanical roadworthiness requirements. If you have doubts about your vehicle’s mechanical roadworthiness, it is better to have a professional do a thorough safety check.
