Road Safety Rules and Important Tips

Injuries are always bad news! We all feel the need to keep ourselves safe whether we are at home or on roads. Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere. Most common reason for injuries is carelessness. Rules are thought to be binding and constraining but they are set for our own safety.

Imagine a scenario where you live in a world with no rules. All you have is chaos all over.

Rules for road safety are to be followed so that the traffic flows in an orderly way.

Some of the traffic rules that must be followed are given below:

5 Important Road Safety Rules for Kids

  1. Do not run on roads.
  2. While driving a bicycle, always use a bicycle track.
  3. Avoid wearing shining and reflective accessories which distract the drivers.
  4. Roads are not playgrounds! Do not play on the roads even if they seem empty.
