We spend so much time on the roads these days and so safe driving is absolutely paramount. Regular driving skills refresher courses should really be a requirement of all drivers!
Some of the more basic safety concerns are addressed below to help you stay safe on the road.
Slow down when conditions are bad
all seasons there are times when conditions make roads much more
dangerous. The most obvious being heavy rain. But you also have to,
depending on your climate, be wary of sun strike (that point in the day
when the sun is rising or setting and hits your windscreen in such a way
that it effectively blinds you), snow, black ice (the kind of ice that
you can't actually see because it just looks like normal road surface),
hail, as well as debris from stormy weather. And something not everyone
is aware of is that a road is at its most slippery when it first rains
after a long dry spell. Even the best driver can easily come unstuck
when confronted with these types of hazards so slowing down really is
the best way to go.
