Road Safety During Ramadan Month

Ramadan is a time of increased activity on the roads, as people travel to visit family and friends for iftar and suhoor gatherings. It’s important to prioritize road safety during this time to prevent accidents and ensure everyone’s well-being. Here are some road safety tips to keep in mind during Ramadan:

  1. Plan ahead: Before heading out on the road, plan your route and give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination. Avoid driving during peak traffic times if possible.

  2. Avoid distractions: Avoid using your phone or other devices while driving, and make sure to stay focused on the road at all times.

  3. Check your vehicle: Make sure your vehicle is in good working condition before hitting the road. Check the brakes, tires, and lights, and make sure to top up the oil and other fluids as needed.
  4. Wear your seatbelt: Always wear your seatbelt, and make sure all passengers do the same. Children should be secured in appropriate car seats or booster seats.
  5. Be mindful of speed limits: Observe speed limits and drive at a safe speed for the road conditions. Be aware of changes in speed limits, especially in residential areas and near schools.
  6. Be patient: During Ramadan, traffic may be heavier than usual. Be patient and avoid aggressive driving, such as tailgating or cutting in front of other drivers.
  7. Take breaks: If you’re traveling long distances, take regular breaks to rest and recharge. This can help prevent fatigue and improve your alertness on the road.

Remember, road safety is everyone’s responsibility. By following these tips and being mindful of your actions on the road, you can help prevent accidents and ensure a safe and happy Ramadan for all.
