Driver Safety

Legal Requirements

  • Always wear your seatbelt. Ensure it is correctly fitted before you begin any journey.
  • Obey all speed limits and restrictions.
  • Do not use your phone or other electronic devices whilst driving. Satellite-Navigation devices should be programmed prior to the start of your trip.
  • Never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Driving Awareness Tips

  • Keep your distance – at least a 2–second gap on dry roads and a 4–second gap on wet roads or in poor visibility.
  • Slow-down in foggy conditions and use your lights. Keep a sensible distance. In very bad fog open your window slightly and turn off your radio so that you can hear other vehicles.
  • Take extra care at road works and when approaching them. Reduce your speed and obey warning signs.
  • Dive slowly and take extra care around schools and built-up residential areas.
  • Keep an eye out for cyclists and leave plenty of space when overtaking.

Motorway Driving Tips

  • Keep left unless you are overtaking. Always overtake traffic on the right and never drive in the hard shoulder.
  • Take care when approaching intersections where traffic joins the motorway and when joining the motorway.
  • Follow motorway signals that warn drivers of dangers ahead including accidents, variable road speeds and poor road or weather conditions.
  • Take regular breaks at service areas, if you feel sleepy, get off the motorway at the first opportunity.
