When travelling on the road one must abide by the traffic rules and regulations. It is important to watch out for sharp bends that may bend to the right or to the left.
If on the main road you must be aware of the speed limit for every road. In Britain the speed limit on motorways is 70 mph ( miles per hour). Speed cameras are placed on motorways and main roads to catch people who may break the speed limit. If you are caught speeding you will have to pay a fine.
If a car breaks down, the driver should try and move the car off the road so as to prevent a traffic jam from occurring. When it snows roads can become icy and extremely slippery, in these situations it is important to drive slowly and cautiously, so as to prevent your car from sliding off the road or crashing into another obstacle.
When you overtake a car in front of you, you should check if the lane at the side is free using your rear view mirror or side mirrors and slowly accelerate from one lane to the other. If an accident has happened on the road it is advisable to slow down and keep a steady slow speed until you have passed the accident zone. You should always fasten your seatbelt as soon as you enter a car, and always make sure all the doors are firmly shut. When parking a car make sure your handbrake is on before leaving your vehicle.
