Always wanted to become a better driver? Here’s a list of 5 things you MUST avoid when you’re on the road.

1. Using your phone

Did you know that you are 4 times more likely to be in a crash if you use your phone? The call can wait. Prioritise both your own safety and the safety of those around you.

2. Tailgating

Tailgating hinders your ability to break in time in response to a collision. Leave room between you and the car in front to keep everyone safe on the road.

3. Leaving high beams on

The less you can see, the less well you drive. Remember to turn your high beams off when you approach another car to avoid compromising their ability to drive safely.

4. Staying in the far right lane

Pull back over to the left when you have overtaken a vehicle. Staying in the right lane forces everyone to go at exactly your speed, or pass you unsafely on the left.

5. Not signalling to turn or change lanes

If we can’t predict what other drivers are going to do, we can’t make informed decisions about what we should do, and the result is chaos. And insurance claims. Let other drivers know exactly where you’re going so they can respond accurately.
