By BBN Staff: The Easter holidays are once again upon us and the Department of Transport would like to remind all drivers, cyclists and pedestrians about the important role that each and everyone of us has to play as it relates to the issue of road safety.
The department also take this opportunity to implore all road users to obey the road traffic laws with special emphasis on the following:
FOCUS ON DRIVING
Keep 100% of your attention on driving at all times – no multi-tasking (No phone calls nor texting).
Be aware of what other drivers around you are doing, and expect the unexpected at all times.
“DO NOT” drive whilst consuming alcoholic beverages or whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If consuming alcohol/drugs, ensure you have a designated driver.
Motorcyclists and Bicyclists should always wear a protective helmet (this includes the passenger on motorcycles) and also wear bright clothing or reflective vests whilst on the road after dark or early in the morning.
“ONE LIFE LOST IS ONE TOO MANY – LETS KEEP IT AT ZERO!!!”
“ROAD SAFETY IS EVERYONE’S BUSINESS!!!”
HAVE A SAFE AND ENJOYABLE EASTER HOLIDAYS
