Road transport rules are a big part of the road safety debate, and can vary from state to state.
Here are a few road transport guidelines you need as you travel on the roads.
Be aware of road conditions and wear reflective gear Road transport is a major part of life on the road.
When travelling on the streets, wear a reflective helmet or vest that will let you see what’s going on around you.
You can buy a few pairs of reflective helmets for £20.
They come in a variety of colours and styles, and you can buy them in pairs or in a series.
You may be able to get them in different styles of helmets in different states.
It’s important to wear reflective glasses to help you see where your car is, so you’re able to see where the traffic is. 2.
Be mindful of traffic signs and warning signs There are a number of signs on the side of the roads that are telling people to slow down and look out for other road users.
This is because the signs are only there for safety reasons, so if you don’t pay attention, you can be overtaken by other road user.
Some states have also introduced a law that states motorists should wear reflective helmets on the day of the event and at all times.
Be safe in traffic, not just at night Road transport involves a lot of people in the same vehicles.
If you see other road traffic, be alert and aware.
Take your time and look where the other person is going and where they are going.
Don’t get in their way.
If they stop you, don’t push your car into them or get out of their way, even if they’re doing something else.
If someone has to be pushed into you, keep it as quiet as possible, and make eye contact with them.
If it’s a cyclist, they’re more likely to be on the wrong side of traffic.
If there’s a traffic light on the way, take extra care to not get distracted by it and look to the left.
You’ll be safer and more likely not to get hit by it. 4.
Be careful of distracted pedestrians and cyclists If you’re travelling on a road, you’ll be in the middle of busy traffic, so be careful of people walking around and stopping you.
If something gets out of hand, try to avoid them and get to a safe distance.
Be extra careful when cycling too, so don’t get caught out in traffic.
Don’ t cross a busy road without a road sign on or at a traffic signal If you’ve ever seen a road on a busy city street, you may have been told to cross at a signal or sign.
This isn’t always true.
There are plenty of signs at crosswalks to help drivers and pedestrians to cross safely.
But if there’s no sign or signal, keep your distance.
If the road has a pedestrian crossing, use a pedestrian crosswalk and cross the road with caution.
Never park in a car park or drive in the rain While it may be tempting to take a shortcut on the street or park in the car park when it’s raining, this will result in a significant increase in your carbon footprint.
It can also affect the visibility of your car and your visibility to other road travellers.
If a car is parked on a pedestrian walkway or footpath, they will get a warning from the traffic lights, so make sure to get out and check before you get back.
Always check traffic signs Before you drive in a road or enter a road in the street, make sure you check all the road traffic signs.
These may tell you to stay clear of a car or car park and not to drive in that direction, or that you should slow down when you see a car coming.
If your car or vehicle is parked in a lane, make a note of it, and don’t drive in it. 8.
Always wear reflective gloves when travelling on roads There are various kinds of reflective gloves that can be purchased in different colours, but the ones you’ll need to buy are always the same: black, white, blue or red.
They’ll cost you around £15 for the standard size, and £20 for the larger size.
You won’t be able buy any of the other colours, because they aren’t as effective as the standard ones.
Be responsible when you park in parking lots or in busy street car parks Road transport can be very busy, so it’s important you have a safe route to use.
Road transport signs, including those for cars, buses and trucks, warn you of road closures and roadworks, and advise you to use alternate routes.
When you’re using a road transport system, it’s also important you’re wearing your seat belt, because people who fall off the vehicle may not be able or willing to stop and help. 10. Don’,t
