We help you to choose the perfect vehicle for you
Cross only at Zebra crossings, traffic signals, subways, foot over-bridges, etc. Where such facilities do not exist, look for a safe place to cross. Cross the road where there is clear visibility.
When crossing between vehicles parked on the side of the road, remember that you are not visible to the moving traffic (because the parked vehicles may be taller than you). Stop as you appear from behind the vehicle and look for a safe gap before crossing. Remember, drivers need plenty of time to see you and to slow down or stop.
Make use of your senses. LOOK all around for traffic in every direction and LOOK again! LISTEN for the sound of approaching traffic.
It is much safer to wait for a few minutes than take risk. Do not cross the road until you are sure that there is a safe gap in the traffic.
When you have started crossing, keep an eye out for bikes. Motorcyclists are often fast moving and might ride up between the traffic.
Children are good observers. They follow your actions and hence always be careful of your behavior on road when you walk and drive.
Even for a small detour to nearby shops use pedestrian crossings so that they understand the importance of it.
Talk to your children about the risk of using mobile phones while crossing roads. When you drive with them turn your mobile phones off or put them in silent mode.
Take them around the neighborhood and teach them safe places to cross roads.
Listening to music with earphones on is a risky distraction. Educate your children that they will not be able to hear the traffic if they use earphones with loud music.
