1 Transportation Tuesday TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY CHANGE TAKES TIME HAS TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY MADE A DIFFERENCE TO YOU YET? SIX REMINDERS FOR SAFER DRIVING

2 Transportation Tuesday Tyre safety Avoiding collisions at intersections Moving side mirrors to avoid blindspots The speed limit is not a target White lines are useful signs Cut out the unsafe acts

3 Transportation Tuesday A TYRE IS CONSIDERED DANGEROUSLY UNDERINFLATED IF IT HAS JUST 4LBS PER SQUARE INCH (28kPA) LESS PRESSURE THAN RECOMMENDED

4 Transportation Tuesday AVOIDING COLLISIONS AT INTERSECTIONS Technically, you have the right of way, but the other driver does not yield. What do you do? A Ignore him. Proceed as planned. He needs to learn the rules of the road. B Let him pass. There is no point risking a crash to prove a point. BE A FRIENDLY DRIVER DO SOMEONE ELSE A GOOD TURN hopefully this is you

5 Transportation Tuesday CLEAR VIEW clear view you can see other traffic sooner and for longer NEW SIDE MIRROR POSITION - (YOU LOOK ALONG THE ROAD, NOT THE SIDE OF YOUR CAR) turn your mirrors out - make sure you see the road, not the side of your car you get only 4 small blind zones BLIND ZONEBLIND ZONE BLIND ZONEBLIND ZONE BLIND ZONEBLIND ZONE BLIND ZONEBLIND ZONE

6 Transportation Tuesday It doesn’t matter how good a driver you are. The faster you go, the longer it takes you to stop. THIS IS A LIMIT NOT A TARGET 120 KPH 60 KPH

7 Transportation Tuesday THE ICEBERG RULE disaster / fatality minor accident (nobody hurt, drove away) near misses unsafe act major accident - injuries involved for every 2000 unsafe acts - overtaking in the hard shoulder - speeding on a roundabout - running a red light - driving too close you can expect 600 near misses 30 minor accidents 10 major accidents one disaster

8 Transportation Tuesday HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DRIVING? If you have one unsafe driving act each day - it takes five years for you to have completed the bottom of your iceberg

9 Transportation Tuesday YOU CAN’T READ MINDS - BUT YOU CAN READ THE ROAD

10 Transportation Tuesday When lines change - if they get longer - if they are closer together - if they become a solid APPROACHING A HAZARD THEN YOU ARE APPROACHING A HAZARD AND THAT MEANS THE TRAFFIC WILL SLOW OR STOP - such as... - A JUNCTION - AN EXIT - TRAFFIC LIGHTS - A SCHOOL
