Tips for Motor Vehicle Drivers
Living on an island has many advantages. Year-round sunny weather. Plenty of beautiful beaches. Access to fresh food such as seafood, fruits and vegetables. Beautiful tropical landscape. The list goes on.
Of course living on an island also has its disadvantages. For many of us on Oahu, it’s the congested roadways. How often have you found yourself sitting in traffic trying to get from point A to point B, even in short distances? We may get a reprieve during the summer months, but with July coming to an end, many of Oahu’s public school students will be returning to the classroom starting next week. This means that the roadways will be congested once again, and many drivers will have to plan ahead if they want to get to their destination on time.
With this in mind, we thought that we’d take this opportunity to share some helpful driving tips for drivers in order to keep the roads safe for everyone who uses them – motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Many of these guidelines can be found in AAA Hawaii’s Sharing the Road: A Guide to Safe Bicycling in Hawaii which has a section with many useful tips for motorists.
