The Importance of Road Safety
If you look around you these days, do you notice that the number of roadaccidents occurs in our country is increasing day by day? Is this the price we have topay as we move towards a developed nation status? We need to do somethingbefore the number of accidents rises and the situation becomes worst. We shouldfollow the road safety that is created the government in order to ensure our safety onthe road.First and foremost, we should avoid standing in the middle of the road. Theroad users such as drivers of vehicles are not always careful when driving. Maybethey may not notice us when we stand in the middle of the road. There are manyfactors that the accidents may occur such as the driver might not pay full attention onthe road because they are daydream or thinking about their family or work. They alsomight be speeding because they are in a hurry. The other factor is the weather. If it isa rainy day, the eyesight of the driver is more limited and unconsciously they mightaccidently hit us and leaving us with serious or even fatal injuries. To avoid this, weshould use the facilities provided by government such as zebra lines and overheadbridge.To be safe on the road we have to be careful while transporting a largeamount of load or goods. Nowadays, we can see a few lorry and trailers to bring alarge amount of load or goods in order to save energy, time and money withoutthinking about safety. This may cause danger to themselves and to other road users.For example, if the lorry attendant and the goods fall onto the road, other driver willtry to swerve away to avoid hitting the goods and it may lead to accident andfatalities. As a precaution, tie up the goods into small bundles and use a canvas tocover the goods.The road users should avoid driving recklessly. As we all know, over-taking atthe bend is very dangerous because the driver comes from the other side cannot seethe car that is heading towards them and the car may collide into each other. Theother examples of neglecting while driving or riding are using hand phone whiledriving, driving when you are sleepy, driving under the influence of drugs or alcoholand playing loud music while driving. All of this reckless act can be overcome bytaking some steps such as use blutooth phone devices when receiving or making acall while driving. For those who are driving long journey, take a rest by stopping thecar at R&R or taking a nap to refresh their body to avoid from feeling sleepy. Other
