10 ways you can help make Ontario’s roads the safest in North America
 
 
 
  1. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t drive when you’re taking medication that will affect your driving.
  2. Wear your seatbelt (unless you are a passenger on a bus without seat belts).
  3. Obey the speed limits. Slow down when road and weather conditions are poor.
  4. Don’t take risks: don’t cut people off in traffic, make sudden lane changes or run yellow lights.
  5. Don’t drive when you’re tired, upset or sick.
  6. If you’re in doubt, let the other driver go first — yield the right-of-way.
  7. Keep a safe distance between your vehicle and the one ahead.
  8. Avoid distractions associated with electronic devices such as cell phones and GPS. Never text message while driving, and keep two-way radio conversations to a minimum.
  9. Check your mirrors frequently; be aware of blind spots not covered by the mirrors.
  10. Check traffic in all directions before going into an intersection.
