[b]The Fatal Four[/b]
3.Driving without a Seatbelt
It is a time to be extra cautious on the roads and to arrive home safe
Every k over is a killer. Observe the speed limits at all times and don’t exceed the signed maximum speed limit.
Depending on your age driving experience and the type/class vehicle being driven a driver’s alcohol concentration may be required to be zero. If you are unsure whether you are over the legal limit – DO NOT DRIVE.
Buckle-up your seatbelt whilst travelling in a motor vehicle this could save your life. You can be fined if you don’t wear a seatbelt.
Have a good sleep before your trip and be aware of the dangers of driving when tired and on unfamiliar roads. When travelling long distances a minimum of a 15-minute rest is recommended every two hours. In peak holiday periods look for Driver Reviver stops where you can rest have a free snack and a coffee.
