THINK OVER THESE BEFORE DRIVING
- Drinking and driving is an offence
- Do not overtake at junctions
- Pedestrians have the right to cross the road at the zebra crossing
- Being impatient on the road makes you a patient at home.
- Speed thrills but kills
- 1. When approaching uncontrolled junctions
- Can other drivers see me?
- Am I approaching from a minor road to a major road?
- Do I have an escape route?
- 2. When approaching controlled/signalised junctions
- Is green light about to change?
- Do I have time to stop?
- Can the vehicle behind me stop?
- 3. When approaching a bend/turning
- How sharp it?
- Is sight distance enough?
- Is my speed right?
- When trying to overtake
- Is the vehicle in front of you about to turn right?
- Is there enough sight distance?
- Is there any vehicle on right approaching quite fast?
- 4. When being overtaken
- Am I unhappy being overtaken?
- Am I giving signal for overtaking or not overtaking?
- Are there more vehicles than one about to overtake?
- 5. When passing parked vehicles
- Will the door of the parked vehicle suddenly open?
- Will some pedestrian rush out from behind the vehicle?
- Will a parked vehicle suddenly pull out?
- 6. About your positioning
- Can I see and be seen?
- Is traffic restricting my course of action?
- Is there enough space to stop?
THE FASTER YOU GO, THE LESS TIME YOU HAVE TO REACT TO SITUATIONS
At higher speed, a driver has less time to react to potentially hazardous
situations. The stopping distance for a vehicle travelling at 80 km per hour is
76 meters. At 100 km per hour it is 112 meters. It takes a longer distance to
stop a fast moving vehicle than most people think. So please take note of the
information given in the chart below.
- About your speed
- Can I stop in time if the vehicle in front brakes suddenly?
- Is my speed correct for the road and type of traffic?
- Am I in right gear?
- About the road and environment
- Is the road wet, greasy or uneven?
- Are there roadside encroachments and parking?
- Is it going to rain?
