Driving on suburban streets is actually more hazardous than you might assume. There’re a few things you need to keep in mind to ensure both your safety and that of other people using the road. Here are some tips for driving on suburban roads:
- Always stay alert when you are driving near cars parked on the side of the street – pedestrians and children can be difficult to spot if they stand behind the parked vehicles when crossing the road.
- Be extra careful when you are driving in areas where children could be present such as playgrounds and schools.
- Watch out for give-way and stop signs, as well as unmarked intersections as these are potential risk areas.
- Always drive below the speed of 50km/h unless there’s a road sign with different instructions. This makes it easier for you to react to any unforeseen hazards.
