  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
  20. Know your emergency numbers - When you need assistance, kindly call the following numbers
Police 10111
Fire 10177
Ambulance 10177

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a
    similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

    I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any assistance is
    very much appreciated.

    Please let me know if you're looking for a writer for your blog.
    You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd really like to
    write some material for your blog in exchange
    for a link back to mine. Please send me an email if interested.
    Kudos!
