Safe on the road

Drive at 30 and follow the rules of the road. At 30 km/h your braking distance is reduced to 13 metres, which means you’ll avoid accidents with other road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, monowheels and scooters.

Safety tips:

  1. Only cross the road or move forward when the light is green.
  2. Signal to show what you intend to do! Give other road users plenty of warning that you are about to change direction or lane.
  3. People on pedestrian crossings have priority.
  4. Pavements are for pedestrians only! Do not park on the pavement, a pedestrian crossing, a cycle path, or a bus or tram stop.
  5. Be mindful of other road users when you open your door when parked.
  6. Take particular care when there are children on the road or pavement. Their behaviour can be unpredictable and you should be prepared for this.
  7. Trams cannot stop instantly and therefore always have priority.
  8. Do not use bus or cycle lanes. 
  9. Watch out for buses and do not obstruct them. Be aware of people getting on and off the bus.
