Not Buckling Your Kids Up
That is rather sad and extremely dangerous. To compound the entire issue, I have experienced parents allow their kids play in the leading seat without having to be buckled up. Please make certain children are buckled up properly.
Adults Need To Buckle Up Too
It has been repeated so much that individuals start feeling like they’re being “forced” to wear seat belts. It’s for the safety. Kindly hook them up to always, and properly too.
Disobeying Speed Limits And Traffic Signs
Most drivers turn a blind eye to speed limit signs, sometimes school/children crossing signs are ignored too !.They’re there to safeguard you and other road users. Respecting them would take a short while of your own time, disrespecting them usually takes your whole life away, or someone else’s life. Be safe.
Disobeying Traffic Lights
I’d to separate your lives this from the last point. That is one of the common violation/mistake, specially when the trail is “free” and there’s no traffic officer in sight. I was once knocked down by way of a Keke(Tricycle) in Mushin one evening, because I trusted the traffic light and the drivers, I didn’t notice it coming. Thankfully, it was just a couple bruises , it might have been worse. Kindly obey the traffic light always.
Using The Wrong Type Of Oil
Most manuals nowadays indicate the sort of oil you must use.Stop trusting Kamoru the mechanic’s suggestion on which oil to use. To a lot of them, “oil na oil “, they can’t even see the labels(I don’t mean to be condescending, but its true).Use the best oil for your vehicle !.
Using Wrong/Expired Tyres
A good number of car owners still don’t realize that tyres expire the same as your milk or drugs .The proven fact that its shining and the threads are intact doesn’t mean it’s good to go. Some tyres aren’t even designed for this climate, they’re built for snow and cold environments. News flash!, its indicated on your body of the tyre. You’ll need to begin paying more awareness of your safety folks !.Yes, Mr Femi, I’m talking about you ?
Hope you enjoyed this and learnt something valuable.
