Please inspect your vehicle before setting out on a trip

     Head lights, signal lights and brake lights, suspension brakes, tyre conditions , check of overloads and poorly balanced loads. Ensure that the load is equally distributed and properly secured. Ensure that all documents and permits are with you.

 

Be Aware – the chances of crash are much greater for drivers who are habitual of drinking than for drivers who are not. So for your own as well as other’s safety :-

DON’T MIX DRINKING WITH DRIVING

  • Always use low beam when driving in fog or while following another vehicle, as your light reflects back reducing visibility. 
  • If oncoming traffic does not dip its high beam, look to the left side of the road and drive towards the left of your lane and if you are dazzled, slow down or pull over untill your eyes recover.
