Top tips for encouraging safe and positive behaviour on the roads
While speeding remains the biggest contributor to fatal road accidents in Australia, behavioural changes can make a positive impact in helping to reduce a range of road-related incidents. Wet weather, snowy conditions and unfamiliar roads can lead to an increase in vehicle collisions.
As the leading brand in in-car dash cams in Australia1, Uniden provides advice to encourage safer driving in all weather conditions.
- Remain observant of the local surroundings as well as other road users. Be mindful of pedestrians and children in school zones, changed conditions and speed limits when travelling past construction and road works and wildlife in regional areas, particularly at sunset when many animals are on the move. It’s reported that animal collisions increase by 30 per cent in the winter months, with a peak danger period between June and August2.
- Stick to the local speed limit in dry weather conditions. When wet weather strikes, always slow down, keep a greater distance between the vehicle ahead and be extremely vigilant on the roads.
