  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

    The next time I just read a blog, I hope which it doesnt disappoint me as much as this blog. I mean, It was my choice to read, but I just thought youd have some thing intriguing to talk about. All I hear can be a bunch of whining about something that you could fix when you werent too busy looking for attention.

    Not often do I encounter a weblog that is both educated and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail on the head. Your concept is excellent; the issue is something that not sufficient individuals are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my quest for something relating to this.

    Freedom to have fun. Nintendo Switch is designed to go wherever you do, transforming from
    home console to portable system in a snap. It combines the mobility of a
    handheld with power of a home gaming system, so you get more time to
    play the games you love, however you like. This bundle includes the Nintendo Switch console and
    Nintendo Switch dock in black, with contrasting left and
    right Joy Con controllers—one red, one blue.
    It also includes all the extras you need to get
    started. One controller or two, vertical or sideways, motion controls
    or buttons…Joy-Con and Nintendo Switch give you total gameplay flexibility.
    Use the included Joy-Con grip to combine both Joy-Con into a traditional-style controller.

    Depending on the game, you might use a single Joy-Con in each hand—or even give
    the second one to a friend. Slide the Joy-Con into Nintendo Switch to go
    portable. Use additional Joy-Con controllers, Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers, or a combo
    of the two.
