KEEPING WELSH ROADS SAFER

Motorways

Driving on motorways means heavier traffic and higher speeds. Below, is some advice to help ensure a safe journey:

  • Check your vehicle is roadworthy before you start.
  • Keep left except when overtaking.
  • If you are overtaking a number of slower vehicles, it may be safer to stay in the middle or outer lane rather than continually switching lanes.
  • Keep your distance and watch you speed. 
  • Only use the hard shoulder in an emergency - if you need to stop for any other reason - to read a map or use your mobile phone, for instance - pull into a service station.
  • Take special care at roadworks: slow down and get into the correct lane in good time; Concentrate on the road ahead, not the roadworks; keep to the speed limit and keep a safe distance in case there are queues in front.
