Safety on the road should not only be instilled by the driver of the vehicle but by passengers too!
Ensure that you stick to these rules so that you, as a passenger, help keep safe.
First of all, avoid distracting the driver of the car. The driver needs to focus on the road or any obstacles that may occur.
As a passenger, it is just as important for you to wear a seatbelt as it is for the driver. Make sure you always have your seatbelt on – and make sure that the driver also always has a seatbelt on.
Be a good co-pilot. Do things to make the driver more comfortable – assist with navigation only when asked and control the radio.
Pay attention to the road too, just in case of any obstructions. If there are any obstructions, do not scream or scare the driver, calmly state what you see.
Avoid turning on interior lights at night asthis disrupts the driver’s vision.
By following these easy tips you can rest assured knowing that as a passenger, you are assisting in road safety.
