Responsibility in the Car

When you sit behind the wheel as a driver, you automatically accept all responsibility for the safety of the vehicle, the safety of yourself and for the safety of your passengers. However this does not just mean you need to ensure you drive safely – Assuming responsibility when behind the wheel starts far earlier than ever getting anywhere near the drivers seat.

You need to make sure you are in a fit state to drive for a start – This means no drinking when you know you will be behind the wheel later on (or even early the next day), and especially no drugs under any circumstances. You also need to be aware of the rules for carrying passengers – Is your car prepared to carry passengers? What about children? Will there be any pets in the car? Any special requirements that need to be met?

When you are in the driving seat, you are in charge – It’s that simple.

Safe driving from Britannia!
