Apart from the obvious need to drive safely, it’s also necessary that we check our vehicles regularly to guard against failures which can result in accidents not directly related to our driving.
Signals we use as drivers are the ‘language of the road’.
The Oman Traffic Law makes it mandatory for drivers and front-seat passengers to wear their seatbelts. However, many people simply ignore this.
Since we don’t have eyes in the back of our heads, we rely on scanning our vehicle’s mirrors to give us all-round awareness.
One of the most important things we as drivers can do in order to keep us safe on the road is to apply appropriate speed discipline.
