October Is National Transport Month

October is National Transport Month in South Africa. The month was marked as such to advocate highway safety awareness. South Africa’s roads are amongst the worlds most treacherous. In 2016, over 14,000 people died in motor vehicle accidents. Sadly, that was a nine percent increase in deaths from 2015.

Celebrate National Transport Month by making sure you know traffic laws and do all you can to make sure you stay safe at all times while on the road. Here are some tips:

o Traffic Circles. Traffic circles continue to confuse many drivers and numerous accidents continue to occur in them. The basic rule in a traffic circle is simple: always give way to the car approaching from the right. If you stick to this rule, you’ll avoid most problems.

o Amber Lights. Some see an amber light as an invitation to speed, rather than slow down. Remember, an amber light means that the light is about to change to red. It’s a warning, not a challenge.

o Cell Phones. Cell phones have distracted drivers for years and while most drivers know they shouldn’t text and drive, many still do. Cell phones, however, are great for emergencies and should only be reserved for such a time.

o Car Batteries. You need a functioning car battery to start your car. All car batteries have a certain life span. Depending on the quality, such could range between two to seven years. It’s also important to know how to jump start your car battery, should it ever need to do so.

How to Jump Start Your Car Battery

Jump starting your dead car battery is easy. You’ll need jumper cables and another car. Here are the steps:

1. Park the other car so its engine faces your car. The cars shouldn’t, however, touch.
2. Attach the jumper cables to the positive (red) and negative (black) leads of the working car battery. Then attach the other ends respectively to your car (making sure the cables are attached to the same color). To avoid sparks, locate a piece of bare metal on which to ground the negative lead.
3. Once the cables are secure, start the other car and run the engine for about two minutes.
4. Turn off the working car and detach the cables. Your car should not be charged and ready to go.
