5 Best Ways to Drive Safe in Expressways

According to the latest Metropolitan Manila Development Authority’s Road Crash Statistics Report, 101,428 road accidents in the National Capital Region, including those heading to expressways. This figure was recorded from January to December 2018. Unfortunately, 336 resulted in deaths, while 15,520 caused non-fatal injuries.

Here are five ways to keep safe on the road.

Use hi-beam only when necessary.

Getting blinded by a car’s hi-beam is not fun and dangerous.

Masakit talaga sa mata.

In fact, glaring light can cause fatal accidents. So use it only when you are driving through a dim road or you want to warn pedestrians and fellow motorists.

Drive according to speed limits

The speed that thrills is the speed that kills.

If the sign says to maintain your speed at 100km/h, then your speed should just be 100 kilometers per hour. This tip is more vital when driving under heavy rain. Driving too fast could make you lose control and hit other motorists.

Keep a safe distance.

Safe distance has always been a preventive measure that people ignore.

One of the common road mishaps is when a motorist misjudges the distance and hits the car or other vehicles in front. Although this usually causes a minor accident, it could trigger road rage.

Check your rearview/side mirror. 

Never forget to look at your rearview and side mirror whenever you change your lane. Motorists swarm the roads in NCR and the expressways.

Unfortunately, many motorists try to overtake the moment they see an opening. They take a chance as quickly as they can not, checking the rearview mirror and side mirror for incoming motorcycles and other vehicles.

This is one of the most common reasons for vehicular accidents every day.

Use proper turn signals.

Changing lanes without signaling is a perfect recipe for accidents.

It’s a very basic thing, but many are taking their turn signals for granted. Turn signals can help you communicate what you intend to do. This way, pedestrians and the vehicles around you can anticipate whether they are waiting for their turn or keep moving.

Not correctly using your turn signal can cause miscommunication and collisions. So when you need to turn, always use it to warn everyone.

Sira ang signal lights?

Naku delikado yan.
