Safe and Responsible Driving :

Driving Along

  • Be alert to the traffic around you as you drive.
  • Make a routine practice of looking behind and side by checking your mirrors.
  • Try to keep other vehicles out of your blind spot by changing your speed and try not to drive in other vehicles' blind spots.
  • Be extra alert at dawn and dusk when drivers have a problem adjusting to the changing light.
  • Anticipate other vehicles' movements and make allowances for possible errors.
  • Be careful towards slow moving vehicles cycles, rickshaws, carts as they have the tendency to turn without giving any signal.
  • Watch for people in parked vehicles — they may be about to pull out in front of you or may open the door without noticing your vehicle.

Steer Smoothly

  • Steer smooth and precise.
  • Do most steering and lane changes having both hands on the steering wheel.
  • You should try to steer in a straight line while shifting gears, adjusting controls or checking your blind spot.
  • Imagine the steering wheel as a clock and keep your hands at nine o’clock and three o’clock or at 10 o’clock and two o’clock. This gives you better control while driving.
  • Cars with airbags: Keep your hands at nine o’clock and three o’clock otherwise airbag can cause injuries.

Keep Left

  • Keep to the left of the road.
  • On multi-lane roads also one should be on the left-hand lane.
  • You may turn right if you want to overtake another vehicle or change the lane.
