Simple gestures that can prevent accidents

  • Better slower, especially on conventional roads.
  • Special attention when leaving the highways and highways and entering the conventional roads and special attention also on the short journeys between the conventional roads linking summer resorts.
  • If you drink, do not drive and if someone in the group with whom you have drunk is your responsibility not to let him drive.
  • Turn off the phone if you are going to drive or put the car mode on those devices that have it incorporated. There is nothing I can't wait for. Also, if you leave as a passenger, do not let the driver manipulate the mobile.
  • Wear a seat belt and children in your child restraint system.
  • Stop every two hours on long journeys to rest. Driving fatigue is a bad ally.
