Driving Safety Tips


A witness to a car accident was testifying. The following exchange took place between the lawyer and the witness.

The lawyer: "Did you actually see the accident?"

The witness: "Yes, sir."

The lawyer: "How far away were you when the accident happened?"

The witness: "Forty-two feet, six and one-quarter inches."

The lawyer (thinking he'd trap the witness): "Well, sir, will you tell the jury how you knew it was exactly that distance?"

The witness: "Because when the accident happened I took out a tape and measured it. I knew some stupid lawyer would ask me that question."


Safety Tips


  Always be a polite driver because good driving behaviour starts with you. Please, avoid verbal abuse, rude gestures and driving too close to a car in front;

  Keep a good distance between cars (You will be able to stop your car and not be involved in an accident);

  Do not exceed the permitted speed (you still do not have enough experience to avoid an emergency. Also this is a traffic offence and punishable by high fines or loss a licence);

  Always wear your seatbelt and advise your passengers to do the same (Most road deaths come from not wearing a seat belt);

  If you are tired, then do not  drive a car to avoid an accident (You can easily fall asleep while driving);

  Wear the proper shoes when you drive a car (Otherwise, your thongs or high heels can slip off the pedals);

  If an animal jumps out in front of your car, don't swerve because you can instinctively drive into oncoming traffic and kill a lot of people (Just hit the breaks by all means);

  Try not to eat while driving (You can get distracted, choke on food and cause accident);

  Never use alcohol, drugs, or serious medications while driving;

  Do not get distracted by your phone while driving (You can create a fatal situation. Do not be a fool - do not use the mobile phone while driving!);

  Make sure that your car is serviced regularly (Check the brakes, tyre pressure, water and oil level).
