Road Safety

Defensive Driving

Defensive driving is about anticipating dangerous situations on the road and being prepared for the unexpected. Driving defensively is something we can all do to reduce our risk of a collision.

The first thing is to keep a safety zone around your vehicle, so there is room between your car and others on the road, and have an escape route. An escape route is a plan for where you can move if the road in front of you is suddenly blocked.

While driving, watch what is happening further down the road and check the mirrors often to see what’s behind and beside you. When you’re behind the wheel, stay focused on your driving and avoid any distractions.

Adopt these defensive driving habits to help you stay safe on the road.
