Also one must observe the traffic signals,do not over ride traffic signals even if the road is empty and especially when one is in hurry , as our mind is already distracted and we driving faster. If you are riding on motorcycle try to wear motorbike helmets because these protect you from serious injuries.

Technology has evolved a lot and has become a very vital part of our lives. For most of us leaving the house without your cell phone is next to unimaginable. Recently, ipods, ipads and such gadgets are also carried out regularly, which is not bad as long as it does not interfere  with road safety. So make sure that when on the road especially driving that you are not constantly using your gadgets and distracted from the road or traffic. Do not use it and if you must have to use hands-free so at least your hands are free in case of an emergency steer or gear shift. Even if you are walking make sure that your headphones do not have volume set to max as you would be unable to hear approaching cars or honking cars. The percentage of road accidents due to these gadgets has increased greatly. This is why most countries have banned using cell phones when on road or place a heavy fine so people become more responsible.
