TRAFFIC GENERAL GUIDELINES
In modern life we have to face
with many problems one of which is traffic congestion becoming more serious day
after day. It is said that the high volume of vehicles, the inadequate
infrastructure and the irrational distribution of the develpoment are main
reasons for increasing traffic jam .
The major cause leading to
traffic congestion is the high number of vehicle which was caused by the
population and the development of economy. To solve this problem, the
government should encourage people to use public transport or vehicles with
small size such as bicycles or make tax on private vehicles
LEFT on a two-way road to
allow traffic from the opposite direction to pass on your right and on a
one-way road to allow vehicles behind you to overtake from your right.
WHEN TURNING LEFT : keep to the left side of the road you are leaving as well as the
one you are entering. When turning right, move to the centre of the road you
are leaving and arrive near the left side of road you are entering.
SLOW DOWN at road junctions, intersections, pedestrian crossings and road
corners and wait until you are sure of a clear passage ahead. if you are
entering a main road where traffic is not being regulated, give way to vehicles
passing on your right.
HAND SIGNALS are necessary at certain times. When slowing down, extend your
right arm palm down and swing it up and down; when stopping, raise your forearm
vertically outside the vehicle; when turning right or changing lane to the
right hand side, extend your right arm straight out, palm to the front; when turning
left or changing lane to the left hand side, extend your right arm and rotate
it in an anti-clockwise direction.
To allow the vehicle behind you to overtake, swing your right arm backward and
forward in a semi circular motion.
