Safety on the Road

Cars today are safer than ever before, and this is all due to ever advancing technology. Braking, steering and safety systems have all been developed to reduce the chances of being involved in a collision, they also lessen the severity of any impact. Cars of course still do crash, but we are much better protected than we were in the past.


Most cars are now equipped with excellent safety systems including ABS, reverse sensors and electronic stability control. These systems work with the driver to ensure you are able to concentrate when driving on the road. They are continually working to help keep you and your passengers safe for your journey.

The most important safety aspect while in the car has to be the seat belt. As well as it being a legal requirement, it is also sensible that you wear it at all times while travelling in a car, ensure all your passengers wear their seat belts too. Whether you make a short or long journey always remember to ‘Clunk and Click’.

The law requires all children travelling in cars to use the correct child restraint until they reach either the age of 12 or a height of 135 cm. After this, they must use an adult seat belt. It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that children under the age of 14 years comply with the law in terms of correct restraints.

The seat belt is the number one safety aid while you are in the car, the other safety aspect inside the car is air bags. If you are involved in a collision, your seat belt will keep you secured while the air bag will cushion you from injury. If you are in a collision with another car it is likely to hit a sensor which will trigger the airbag. Most cars are fitted with airbags to the front and the sides and the appropriate airbag will release upon impact.
