Driving Safety Tip
Turn on your hazard lights and set out warning flares or reflective triangles. Do not leave the scene of the crash, but find a safe place to remain until emergency services arrive.
Mind the speed limit. They have been established for a reason. When you speed excessively, it is much easier to lose control. Nothing is worth the risk you take when you speed.
