We would like to remind drivers to obey the following basic traffic laws:

  • Don’t drink and drive. Don’t drive when you’re taking medication that will affect your driving.
  • Always wear your seat belt.
  • Obey the speed limits. Slow down when road and weather conditions are poor.
  • Don’t take risks: don’t cut people off in traffic, make sudden lane changes or run yellow lights.
  • Don’t drive when you’re tired, upset or sick.
  • If you’re in doubt, let the other driver go first; yield the right-of-way.
  • Keep a three-second space between your vehicle and the one ahead. Follow these steps to check your distance: start counting when the vehicle ahead passes a fixed object, stop counting when your vehicle reaches the same spot.
  • Cut the distractions. Don’t overcrowd the vehicle or play loud music.
  • Always check your blind spot. Look in your mirror and over your shoulder before you change lanes.
  • Check traffic in all directions before going into an intersection.
