The results of traffic accident reports revealed an increase in the rate of traffic accidents during the blessed month of Ramadan compared to the rest of the months. The reports attributed the increase in accidents to drivers committing wrong behaviors while driving.
Among the most prominent mistakes that drivers make are exceeding the specified speed, recklessness, negligence, and violating traffic laws and regulations, which causes many traffic accidents, so we offer you a number of important tips for safe driving in Ramadan to avoid accidents, as follows:
Start your journey early, before the rush hours, as drivers do not feel tired and the trouble of fasting in the early morning periods.
If you feel tired while driving and feel drowsy, you should take a little rest before driving the car.
Watch out for tired drivers on the road and what they can do, as they often suffer from the same symptoms of hunger and fatigue, which leads them to commit the wrong behaviors while driving.
It is preferable to use public transportation, as taxi and bus drivers may be more able to adapt to driving while fasting.
Do not exceed a speed of 60-80 km/h on the main streets, so that you can control the car in emergency situations.
It is important to leave a safe distance while driving, because drivers’ behavior varies in the month of Ramadan, and some drivers lose the appropriate reaction speed while driving, which increases the braking distance.
– Traffic rules and lanes designated for cars must be adhered to, not to suddenly infringe on other lanes, and not to use shortcuts and go in the opposite direction.
Give yourself plenty of time to get to the place you want, if it is a quarter of an hour away from you, try to get out 30 minutes before the time, for example, to ensure that you are not in a hurry to arrive.
