It is always better to stay safe on the road as a car crash in Tyne and Wear is not exactly an ideal situation to be in.
Here then are some tips for safer driving:
- Do not drive when tired
No matter where you are going, or how important it is that you get there – if you are tired then you should not be driving. Tired eyes are not able to focus, a tired mind cannot concentrate and if you were to fall asleep at the wheel…
- Always wear a seat-belt
This goes for your passengers too. Seat-belts are not optional either, it is the law. If you were involved in a car crash in Tyne and Wear, your chances of survival would be greatly increased if you had secured a seatbelt.
- Keep your attention on the road
Listening to music is a great relaxant, and a drive can be improved by it. But if the volume is so high that it drives you to distraction, then just turn it down and don’t take the risk
Mobile phones, hands-free or not, should be off and away. Makeup, if worn, should have been applied before you left your house, hair should already be ‘done’ and food and drink should not be anywhere near your hands let alone your mouth.
So many accidents these days are caused by people not giving their full attention to what they are doing, and these accidents are very easily avoided.
- Drive sober
This is obvious, or it should be. If it is obvious, and everybody knows how dangerous and irresponsible it is, then why do so many people do it? It is not just alcohol either, it’s drugs too…
Anything that impairs judgement, in any way whatsoever, should be kept away from anyone planning to drive.
