2 Traffic safety request
- (1) In the summer, about 50% of the causes of accidents are snooze and aside! Especially holiday is about 1.6 times of spring!
About 50% of the accidents that occurred in the summer (July-August) of last year (2018) were caused by "sleepy and looking aside".
Furthermore, during summer holidays, which are leisure seasons, the number of accidents due to “sleeping and watching” will increase more than in spring, probably because driving and long-distance driving of people who are not familiar with cars usually increase.
Expressway When driving a car, it is a knack to prevent "sleepy and looking aside" to take a break with SA / PA at least once every two hours, even if you do not realize that you are tired.
- (2) A comfortable bike in summer. But it is easy to get tired. Dire break in SA · PA!
Driving a bike tends to be more tiring than driving a car, as it receives direct wind resistance in the same position over time.
If you are a rider, take a special break at SA / PA.
- (3) Summer when alcohol consumption increases in leisure and sightseeing. Do not ride if you drink, do not drink if you ride!
In summer, it is expected that there will be many opportunities for drinking on the go, including leisure and sightseeing. In order to prevent a catastrophic accident due to drunk driving, let's work on eradicating drunk driving together with the driver, such as stopping driving if the driver is drinking, even if accompanied by driving.
