Pay Attention To Speed
The first thing to watch out for when driving on toll roads is the speed limit. The Ministry of Transportation imposed speed limit rules of a minimum of 60 km/hour and a maximum of 100 km/hour. Therefore, you should not drive below or above the speed limits to have safe and smooth driving.
Right Lanes To Overtake
When you are driving on toll roads, you have to stay on the left, as the right lane is specifically intended for overtaking. Most novice drivers ignore this because it is considered trivial, when in fact driving in the right lane at medium or even slow speeds will actually hinder other drivers.
Staying in the correct lane will help you to have a safe drive on toll roads, especially considering the traffic conditions. Another benefit is that it will be easier for you to keep up your pace when you drive in the correct lane.
Give Signs When Switching Lanes
On toll roads, cars travel at a speed of 60 km/hour and a maximum of 100 km/hour. Using signal lights when going to switch lanes is important as this can inform drivers behind what you are going to do. Do not rush when cutting lanes, pay attention to the direction of traffic behind you, and always maintain a safe distance between vehicles.
Shoulder Lanes for Emergencies Only
The main mistake in driving on toll roads is to overtake another car using a shoulder lane. The shoulder lane is provided only for emergencies, such as in the case of a vehicle breaking down. Apart from endangering yourself, driving on the shoulder lane to overtake another car also endangers other drivers.
Always Maintain A Safe Distance
Maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles help you a lot from fatal road accidents. The ideal safe distance is about 10-20 meters. Being too close to other vehicles will make it difficult for you to pull to another side when something bad happens. In addition, maintaining a safe distance also really helps you to get a broader viewpoint when driving.
