Tips on Good Driving - Traffic Do's & Don'ts
A GOOD DRIVER IS ALWAYS

CONSIDERATE -
towards pedestrians, cyclists and other drivers. Tries not to frighten them by approaching at a threatening speed. Does not blow horn and add to the high level of noise in the city. Does not use headlights at full beam and blind the on-coming drivers.

COURTEOUS -
by giving way to the traffic on the right; by slowing down to allow pedestrians to cross the road; does not show impatience by repeatedly blowing horn or threatening gestures; by helping another driver in distress.

SAFE -
doesn't overspeed; doesn't overtake recklessly; keeps his vehicle in good condition; follows lane discipline; observes traffic signals and parking restrictions.

• Do dip your headlights when behind another vehicle is approaching

Negotiating Turns

LEFT TURN
    • Ensure that the turning path is clear and no one is coming up behind you on your left • Give the left and signal by hand or indicator • Keep as close to the left as possible - just before during and after turn • After completing the turn, slowly and smoothly merge with the traffic
RIGHT TURN
    • Make sure that the traffic behind is at a safe distance • Give the right hand signal and gradually slow down • Leave as much room as possible for other vehicles to pass on your left, and take a position just left of the middle of the road. • As soon as you find a safe gap between you and the coming traffic make turn swiftly but safely
