Traffic Advice - Traffic Do's & Don'ts

Take care you are the most vulnerable on the road.

Two wheelers occupy less road space, consume less fuel and hardly damage roads. All plus points. But, unfortunately, there are many irresponsible two wheeler riders. For you and for other road users, driving can be pleasant if the following rules observed.

(a)Stick to the left lane and leave the right lane to faster traffic.

(b)Don't view through traffic stick to your lane.

(c)Never over take on the left.

(d) Wear a helmet for your safety

(e) Don't push your way forward through any opening in the traffic at traffic signals.

(f)2 stroke engines are big polluters because of carbon monoxide emission. Keep your engine tuned.

(g) Do not over speed. The time you gave is negligible.

(h) Do not use horn unnecessarily.

(i) Remember you are vulnerable: in any collision you are more in danger than car or bus.

ADVICE TO CAR DRIVERS - Think of pedestrians and cyclists, particularly in bad weather.

You are one of the privileged few who own cars in our country. It is a great convenience. You can make driving a joy by observing a few simple rules when you are behind the wheel.

(a)Give way to traffic on your right at junctions. If every one is jostling for advantage, the results is a traffic mess out of which no one can get out

(b)Do not use horns unnecessarily; use it only to avert danger. Noise level goes up, driving becomes tiresome with hardly any difference to your progress

(c)Do not over speed or jump traffic lights. The time that you gain is not worth the risk to life and limb

(d) Keep your vehicle in good condition. Exhaust fumes cause air pollution and endanger health

(e) Show courtesy and consideration to the less fortunate - the pedestrians, the cyclists and two wheelers
