Staying safe on the road

Stay safe by controlling what you can. Like seatbelts! Make sure everyone has one (and uses it). Here are simple ways to stay safe:

I'm a passenger:

  • Put your luggage in the boot, not on the rear window shelf.
  • If you’re travelling with young ones, check these rules to see if you need a child seat. It’s your responsibility, don’t assume the driver will have one.
  • Talk by all means, but don’t distract the driver.

I'm a driver:

  • Don’t use your phone! Your passengers can set up the sat nav, you can take calls hands-free.
  • Take a break every two hours.
  • Travelling at night? Make sure you rest and take a nap before travelling.
  • Make sure your vehicle is insured and has a valid MOT.
  • Check your tyre pressure, oil, water, brakes, headlights, window wipers.
  • Respect all traffic laws.
