Drivers must be patient and considerate when driving on the roadway to avoid collisions with other motorists. Many road accidents occur when drivers attempt overtaking dangerously, without looking out for oncoming vehicles.
It is dangerous and ill-advised to overtake another vehicle at bends, on narrow roads, or in a no-passing zone. Many drivers disobey these rules, confusing other motorists when they do, which sometimes leads to collisions.
Patrol officers always advise drivers to drive safely and are always on the lookout for defaulting drivers who break traffic rules.
Accident reports show that a high number of road crashes occur as a result of drivers’ negligence and errors. Hence, drivers must take heed of road traffic laws, obey traffic officers, and drive safely to prevent accidents from occurring.
