Stay hydrated at all times, but only water and non alcoholic drink.

With the upcoming festive season around the corner, you will either be going home or taking a well-deserved vacation. To arrive at your given destination, road transport will be required at some stage of your journey.

Here is a reminder of the basic road rules:

1. Focus on the road and ditch the cellphone – it is illegal to use your cellphone while driving
2. Rather stay hydrated with water and non-alcoholic drinks, because drinking and driving is prohibited
3. Keep to the speed limit. Speed kills
4. Whether you are a driver or passenger, make sure that you update friends and family about your whereabouts
5. Take frequent breaks to refresh. Fatigue is dangerous.

Travel safely and happy holidays!
