  1. Obey the rules of the road and carry your driver’s license with you.
  2. Plan the route to your holiday destination and allow yourself enough time to reach the destination
  3. Make sure that your vehicle is in a roadworthy condition before departure. All lights and indicators, windscreens, windscreen wipers, brakes, steering, shock absorbers, exhaust system and tyres should be carefully examined for faults.
  4. Do not overload.
  5. Try to avoid driving after dark if possible.
  6. Have a good rest before you embark on your journey
  7. Take safety breaks every 2 hours or 200km. Rest, have an energy drink and continue once well rested.
  8. Do not drink and drive
  9. Try to recognise potentially dangerous drivers on and pedestrians alongside the road and keep well clear of them
  10. Be visible – drive with your lights on
  11. Headlights should be dipped well before an approaching vehicle is within the range of the main beam.
  12. Always wear your seat belt and see that everyone in the car is wearing theirs.
  13. Drive defensively
  14. Stay within the speed limit at all times
  15. Only overtake when it is absolutely safe to do so
  16. Maintain at least a 2-second following distance - this distance should be increased at night, in foggy or rainy conditions and when the road is wet.
  17. Expect others to not be as obedient to the law as yourself
  18. Avoid distractions on the road such as texting, conversations on cellular phones etc
  19. Be courteous towards fellow road users - keep your temper and resist the temptation to retaliate

Police 10111

    Hi! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established website such as yours take a lot of
    work? I am brand new to running a blog however I do write in my journal on a
    daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience
    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations
    or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
