Driver Safety – Urban
Plan Your Route
Navigating a busy, built up area can be difficult at the best of times, so it is essential you know exactly where you are going.
Be ready to drive
Be aware of your responsibilities to other road users. Make sure your mirrors and seat are correctly adjusted to ensure comfort, full control and maximum vision. And after a hard days work, be prepared to check and re adjust if necessary.
Observe the speed limit
The speed limit is the maximum legally permitted speed, and often in urban areas, much slower is safe.
Look Out For Other Types Of Road Users
In busy urban areas there are lots more cyclists, motorcycle riders, pedestrians and things that can distract you. Be aware of the distractions and concentrate.
Allow road users to filter and change lanes if need be.
