TIPS TO DRIVE SAFER

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Merg­ing at on-ramps – when driv­ers merge like a zip, it re­duces flow break­down, im­proves trip re­li­a­bil­ity and re­duces driver frus­tra­tion

Use of in­di­ca­tors on the mo­tor­way – unsignalled lane changes of­ten re­sult in the fol­low­ing ve­hi­cles hav­ing to break sud­denly or change speed abruptly. This cre­ates a ‘‘shock wave’’ ef­fect through the traf­fic and in­creases the risk of noseto-tail type in­ci­dents which can then cause in­jury, traf­fic dis­rup­tion and se­vere con­ges­tion.
