More Safety Advice

  • Always wear a seatbelt. Not wearing a seatbelt can have huge consequences. Your friends’ and family’s lives could all be affected. Even on short journeys, you should never skip a seatbelt.
  • Know the speed limit and stick within it. There's no excuse for speeding and going over the limit can be extremely dangerous. Speed limits are there to keep you and others safe. 
  • Drink-driving is an offence. In Scotland, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Police Scotland have a zero-tolerance policy. Don't risk it.
  • Remember: Most single track roads only have space for one vehicle. Use passing places, when you can, and don't rush!
