Defensive Driving Behaviour

  • Drive defensively! Risk takers are collision makers!
  • Avoid all distractions -Keep both eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel!
  • Be visible – drive with your lights on!
  • Headlights should be dipped well before an approaching vehicle is within range of the main beam.
  • Stay within the speed limit at all times.
  • Be especially alert when approaching traffic lights, intersections and level crossings.
  • Only overtake when it is absolutely safe to do so!
  • Maintain at least a 3-second following distance – this distance should be increased at night, in foggy or rainy conditions and when the road is wet.
  • Avoid driving on the blind spot of other vehicles.
  • Be courteous towards fellow road users – keep your temper and resist the temptation to retaliate.
  • Be cautious when driving alone, and avoid stopping in remote areas.
