Rules of the road

  1. 1. Rules of the Road<br />Prepare By<br />Adnan Masood<br />Manager QHSE<br />
  2. 2. Driving is a serious and sometimes dangerous business. Modern, high-speed vehicles constantly<br />demand more and better highways. The state’s highway builders have a never-ending task of attempting <br />to meet this demand. Law enforcement officials, in turn, work thousands of hours each day in Keeping highways and streets safe for you and those you love.<br /> Unfortunately, new, safer highways can’t be built in a day, and law enforcement officers ant be stationed every few feet to see that all drivers use good judgment and<br />obey “rules of the road.”<br /> A few poor drivers are ever present—even though they may possess all the mental and physical qualifications necessary to drive. Their only failing is the absence of good<br />judgment.<br /> In other words, they “take chances,” virtually making a death-dealing weapon out of a motor vehicle.<br /> On the other hand, the driver who uses average intelligence and coordination, who obeys signs and observes special markings, can be a safe driver.<br /> The automobile, motorcycle and truck have become a necessity in our fast-moving world. They are, and should be pleasure vehicles, too. Your vehicle will serve you well in both fields if you stay alert, drive properly and follow the basic “rules of the road.”<br />Prepare By: Adnan Masood Manager QHSE at TCG {0336-2350594}<br />About Drivers<br />

In preparing to pass, check the road ahead for sufficient distance and the road behind for other traffic that may be preparing to pass you. Activate left-turn signal before passing and right-turn signal after passing, and before returning to the right lane. Do not return to the right lane too soon, wait until you can see the entire front of the vehicle you have just passed in your rear view mirror. When another car is trying to pass you, stay in your lane and don’t increase speed.<br />Prepare By: Adnan Masood Manager QHSE at TCG {0336-2350594}<br />PASSING<br />
