Car safety driving rules/tips in India

Car safety driving rules in India
Tips to Help Stay Safe:-
"Check Vehicle condition particularly Brake, Tyre Presssure, Light, Horn Clutch before starting the vehicle for the day."

1.) Always wear your seat-belt
2.) Avoid distractions
3.) Never drive under the influence of alcohol or narcotics
4.) Stick within speed limits and follow the rules
5.) Maintain your car and use it properly
6.) Always look both ways when crossing the road
7.) When starting from parked place watch out, signal and then proceed.
8.) Never drive in haste: People often drive in haste and make mistakes. Drive calmly and try to take less traffic zone, if you think you are getting late.
9.) Fasten seat-belts: Cars have seat belts which should be fastened every time you drive. Seat belts protect you from getting banged on steering wheel or getting jolted from your seat at the time of sudden braking, it helps in saving the passengers during collision.
10.) Use mirrors: Develop habit of using mirror to see traffic coming from behind and sides as well. Find blind spot of your vehicle and make out how to pass other vehicles.
11.) Maintain space between vehicles: Avoid bumper to bumper driving to prevent collisions and close distances makes difficult in changing lanes. Maintain a car length distance; it will prevent banging or collision of the car by sudden braking. Keep your mind open and watch the traffic around you and drive according to the required speed. This will help you in controlling the car due to unexpected behaviour of other drivers.
12.) Maintaining Lane Drive: When you drive stick to right lane as far as possible especially around the curve, this prevents head-on –collisions. Going at the edge of the curve makes possibilities of tyres going off the road. Hence, when you drive maintain correct position of your car by seeing the width of the road and steepness too.
13.) Regular maintenance: Follow maintenance schedule regularly and give special attention to filters, brakes, tyre pressure and suspension. Coolants, level of fluids, lubricants, headlights, taillights, etc. as all these are simple things but helps in safe driving especially on highways.
14.) Drive in well health being: It is very important that you are physically and mentally fit while you drive a car. It means the driver should not be distracted, unhappy, fatigue and sleep deprived. Most of the accidents occur due to lack of sleep.
15.) Try learning to anticipate other driver behaviours: The best thing while you drive is to anticipate the behaviour of other drivers. It helps in prevention of becoming victim of accidents or mistakes by other drivers.
16.) Give way to pedestrians at pedestrain crossing.
17.) Be cautious and slow while going in the school zone.
18.) Overtaking in bridges, cutting yellow lines and in junctions can result in head on collision.
19.) Horn only when you must.
20.) Keep to the Left: After you have overtaken a vehicle from the right side move to the left lane and stay there. Do not hog the right lane throughout the journey.
21.) Read the signs: It is very important you read the signs on the road so that you anticipate narrow bridges, zigzag curves, gradients and railway crossings. While driving on a two lane highway when a vehicle coming from the opposite direction flashes his headlights, the driver is asking you to slow down and let him pass. So, slow down and don’t flash your headlights at him instead. Also do not turn your headlights on during dusk.

"Stay Alive – Think and Drive"
-Safety starts with “S”, begins with “You”
-Accidents do not happen, they are caused.
-Do not use cell phone while driving
-Do not mix drinking and driving
-Fast drive could be Last drive
-Ice & Snow – Take it slow
-Donate Blood!! But not on roads!

*****************************************************************
Finally for ladies we suggest not to drive more than 60 -80 KMPH at night times. Learn the usage of clutch and gear change and smooth brake implementation. The speed is not necessary rather than learning how to slow down and apply brakes suddenly.
#### Gents always be on her left side while driving and keep her in right track.
