Road Safety

Stop Distracted Driving


Eyes on the road. Hands on the wheel.

Help stop distracted driving and accidents caused by it. When you're on the road just drive.

Tips

  • Leave 2 seconds between yourself and the vehicle in front.
  • Remember to signal before changing lanes.
  • If you can't see the mirrors of a truck, they can't see you.
  • Be courteous and allow people to merge into traffic.
  • Treat people the way you would like to be treated.
  • Share the road.
  • Watch out for pedestrians and cyclists.

Aggressive Drivers

If you are confronted by an aggressive driver:

  • First and foremost, make every attempt to get out of their way.
  • Breathe. Stay calm and relaxed. Remember that reaching your destination safely is your goal.
  • Put your pride in the back seat. Do not challenge them by speeding up or attempting to “hold-your-own”.
  • Avoid eye contact - some people take eye contact as a challenge and will use it as an excuse to escalate their aggressive behaviour.
  • Ignore gestures and refuse to return them.
