Not only should you drive safely, but also park properly and orderly. Don’t be a pain to the others; be aware of parking guidelines, not only for the sake of common decency, but for your own (and your vehicle’s) betterment as well.The road’s safety is also dependent on the manner of driving by the rivers themselves, if they are observing traffic rules and regulations and the guidelines that are set to them before they were handed license to control that steering wheel. And yet, there are still some hard-headed drivers who are stubborn enough to shrug these implementations off that actually protect them and their co-motorists. Here are several of the most common violations that many drivers make, and what you should not do starting now.
Ignoring the traffic signs
Traffic signs are there for a reason, to guide you of what to keep in mind when traversing an upcoming road. However, even after seeing the signs, many still pretend not seeing them and proceed with whatever workaround they have in mind. Common neglected signs are prohibiting of left or right turn, prohibiting entry especially an opposite direction for one-way roads, not allowing parking on specific areas, even beating the red light on traffic signs. These may be little crimes you get away with, but can cause serious records against you and a huge sum of fine. Better to obey, okay?
Illegal or incorrect parking
Not only are the traffic rules and guidelines meant for road driving, there are also some parking etiquettes to keep in mind. Firstly, parking on non-parking zones may cause you to pay a fine, which is kind of obvious. Especially on public places, where your vehicle may be towed away. However, not only should you park on designated areas, you must also observe the line marking Perth that serves as your guide. Also don’t park facing the oncoming traffic.
Not wearing seatbelts
Why bother putting seatbelts if you are not gonna use them anyway? If you are not an avid fan of seatbelts, fine, and we meant literal fine to be paid. And you may be among several serious injuries that could have been prevented if only you were safely tucked by a seatbelt. It is not an annoying rule, rather a protection for the drivers.
There are actually certain speed limits depending on the place and road. There are some higher allowable speed compared to other areas. Usually, subdivisions with a right rubber speed hump signal you to slow down without specifying any speed limit. However, there are still significant amount of people still disregarding the speed limit, which can be quite dangerous.
Wrong road to drive
Counter flowing the traffic, or driving on your own on carpool lanes, or having a U-Turn where it is not allowed, are among the many ways you can do for shortcut but you also have to be confronted by the cops. As a driver, you should always be open-minded on the road, and direct your vehicle on the proper lane. Always. Drivers tend to reason out why they do such violations, but there is no acceptable excuse. The road is not yours alone, and you share it with many living people. These rules and guidelines are created not to annoy you, but for your protection, the protection of other drivers, and the innocent passengers and pedestrians. Safety should be a priority at all costs.
