Driving with your eyes off the road is the same as driving blind. Anything that takes your eyes away from driving is a potential distraction, and any lapse in concentration ups the risk of a crash. Mobile phones are a common source of distraction. Those who text while driving are not really driving. Break the rules and you face serious consequences. It’s this message, how important it is to keep your eyes on the road, that the Guide’s AR content aims to emphasise.
It’s not just a matter of keeping your eyes on the road. You have to be aware. Being awake for over 17 hours is like being drunk. Fatigued drivers have a driving ability similar to drivers with a Blood Alcohol Reading of 0.05, which is why driver fatigue is one of the three big killers on the road. It’s essential to recognise the warning signs and pull over when it’s safe to do so. Fatigued drivers are not the only ones at risk of being in fatal accidents. Motorcyclists account for approximately 15% of all road deaths so it’s important that safety laws regarding lane filtering, motorcycle control and approved helmets are followed.
