Whether you’re a new or a veteran driver, there are certain courtesies and rules you should follow when you’re driving. Adhering to these guidelines can prevent you from getting into accidents, collisions, and other types of road safety issues. Each country, state or municipality have their own set of rules and regulations when it comes to driving. Make sure you check the laws in your local area and follow them.
To give you an idea, here are some examples of driving etiquettes to help you practice good manners on the road.
- Respect pedestrians especially when they are intersecting the crosswalk. You should not honk on the pedestrians that are crossing because not only is it rude but it is their right of way.
- Avoid too much honking. Honking is acceptable in certain situations such as signaling other vehicles, motorists or people. However, if it in unnecessary and you are just adding to the noise pollution, then you should avoid this practice. There are certain countries where honking is prohibited.
- Do not double park. Double parking can cause traffic and disrupt the proper flow of vehicles. It forces motorists to navigate their way through narrow roads because of your poor decision. In some instances, double-parked vehicles are more prone to getting scratches and dents in their cars. You can guess why.
- Do not cut other drivers. This is a scenario most drivers face on a daily basis. Some drivers just don’t have the courtesy to let other vehicles pass them. Aggressive drivers tend to be impatient and appear to be always in a hurry. As a result, they often cut off other motorists on the road. This can lead to accidents or collisions.
- Wash your car. Driving in a filthy car is not just an eyesore. In fact, it poses as a danger to the driver, passengers, and other vehicles passing it. A dirty car puts your life at risk because you may be driving with soiled mirrors and windshield. This interferes with your visibility of the road and you might end up colliding or hitting other cars, objects or worse, people. In this case, use the KevianClean Car Wash Shampoo to regularly clean your vehicle.
- Wear your seatbelt at all times. The same goes for your passengers. This simple safety practice can potentially save your life in the event of a collision or an accident. Make it a habit of putting your seatbelt on every time you step into your car.
