A Driver Checklist Before Starting A Vehicle

Working on the roads can be tricky. The last thing you want is for your vehicle to break down and block traffic, but that's just one of the things that can happen when doing construction work on a major thoroughfare. To keep yourself safe while driving in these areas, you must know what to do before starting up your car or truck again after pulling over due to an emergency or unexpected delay due to something like equipment failure or even a flat tire.



Here is a check-list for you to keep in handy, either when you are standardizing a Safe driver, or you are one VIP Chauffeur yourself. Take a look!

1.Turn off Your Communications Device


  • Turn off your communications device, especially if driving through a work zone.
  • It's possible that the person riding in the passenger seat is an expert in driving or has some car experience and can help you. If this is the case, it could be wise to take advantage of their knowledge and have them look over your checklist before starting up the vehicle.


2.Adjust Your Surroundings

  • A private driver dubai always remembers to adjust your seat and mirrors.
  • Adjust the climate control
  • Check all seat belts are fastened.

3.Always use Your Seatbelt.

You've probably heard it before: seat belts save lives. They are the single most effective way to reduce injuries in a crash, and if you're not wearing yours, you're putting yourself in danger.

Seat belts should be worn correctly. The shoulder belt should be over your chest and away from your neck; the lap belt should rest across your hips and thighs. All occupants of a vehicle—front seat or backseat—should wear their seatbelts at all times while driving or riding as passengers in any vehicle.

4.Check Behind and Beside

When you're ready to drive away, look behind and beside the vehicle before moving forward or backwards. This step can help ensure that no one is walking behind or beside the car when you start driving.

The following steps will help ensure that your vision is clear:

  • Check mirrors. Look at both sides of your vehicle to ensure no one is standing before starting up. Ensure there are no children, pets or other pedestrians in these areas.
  • Check over your shoulders for traffic around you (your blind spots). If someone pulls out of a parking lot onto the road behind your vehicle, they may turn in front of your car without waiting to pass first! Check both sides of the road where other cars might be coming from before pulling out too far into traffic flow lanes or City Tour Service buses so another chauffeur service won't try getting past while moving forward slowly into their lane quickly without looking back first! Doing so could cause severe accidents due to distracted driving practices by drivers who fail to look behind them often enough while checking mirrors first then checking over shoulders carefully next—driving safely requires constant vigilance when conditions call for attention most urgently during unexpected events such as sudden stops triggered by emergency 
  • vehicles entering into traffic lanes suddenly because their lights were flashing brightly--if not aimed adequately toward pavement surfaces.



5.Keep Your Vehicle Lights on After Dark

A safe driver always keeps their vehicle lights on after dark, even during the summer or when there is rain or fog in the area. You'll be more visible to other drivers and construction equipment operators.

Don't rely on your car's daytime running lights; keep headlights on at all times!

Don't rely on your car's fog lights alone to provide enough light for driving safely at night.

Don't rely on your car's headlights during rain or fog, as this could wash out visibility further.


6.Do Not Let Anyone Distract You While Driving

Do not let anyone distract you while driving, and keep both hands on the steering wheel when operating a motor vehicle to prevent an accident.

When getting ready to drive, ensure your headlight is working correctly. If it is not, call for assistance or fix it before moving on with your day.

Do not text or use your phone while driving unless there are circumstances where this cannot be avoided (for example, using GPS navigation).

Don't eat or drink while driving because it can make you fall ill if someone vomits in the car because they are sick!

Avoid driving when tired as well; it's dangerous and could lead to severe consequences like hitting another car/person due to lack of focus & alertness from being exhausted from staying up too late watching Netflix instead of sleeping earlier so there would be enough time left over for exercise before work...


If you follow these tips and drive safely, you'll be on your way to keeping yourself and others safe from harm. It's always a good idea to plan so that when an emergency occurs, you know what steps need to be taken immediately or over time until everything is resolved.
