How to drive more slowly – personal injury lawyer in Osmotherley
In some situations it will be necessary to drive slowly. Although the speed limits are designed to be stuck to, to keep everyone safe, and you can get in trouble for driving too slowly as well as driving too fast, in some situations you will need to slow down. In bad weather it can be necessary to slow right down in order to keep yourself safe, or in very heavy traffic. Sometimes the condition of the road will be bad and will require you to slow down and be more careful. Whatever the reason, here are some tips on driving slowly, and staying safe when you do so.
Leave plenty of time for your journey
It may be tempting to speed up if you are already late for something important. So if you feel that you may need to drive more slowly today because of weather or other road conditions, allow yourself a little extra time. If you do not have the extra time you need, call ahead and let your destination know that you will be late, as it is more important that you are safe.
Practice accelerating and decelerating gradually so that you can always keep your car moving, but are also able to travel at the slow speed that is necessary. Brake gently when you need to come to a stop.
Impatience can cause you to try to go faster than is necessary, so try to keep yourself calm and understand that you will eventually get to where you are going.
