    Drive Safely

    Be Prepared for Unexpected emergencies


    1No matter how many precautions are taken, some emergencies are unavoidable.
    Remaining calm and understanding what to do when an on-road emergency takes place will enhance your chances of survival.

    Here are a few tips to help you deal with unexpected situations that may arise when travelling.

    2Engine failure
    Engines cut out suddenly for a variety of reasons. Should this happen, put your car into neutral and brake gently.

    Remember, braking and steering will require much more effort than usual without the assistance of the engine.

    As your car slows, pull off to the side of the road, stop the vehicle and switch the ignition off.

    If you’re unable to fix the problem yourself and you’re a member, contact RAA Road Service on 13 11 11.

    3Shattered windscreen
    When driving, particularly along unsealed roads, other vehicles may throw up stones and rocks, causing your windscreen
    to shatter.

    Should this happen, stop the car in a safe place. Using a blanket or similar, cover all internal and external ventilator openings to prevent pieces of glass falling into them. Cover the bonnet if you have another blanket or similar to protect the bodywork, and then, with your hand covered in a rag or

    a piece of clothing, push the windscreen out.

    Close all windows to stop through-winds as you drive slowly to the nearest windscreen repairer or dealer.

    It’s a good idea to wear glasses while driving to protect your eyes from insects or any pieces of glass that may become dislodged.

    If you regularly travel on unsealed roads, you might want to think about carrying a temporary windscreen which can be fitted in place until you reach a repairer.

    4Accelerator Stuck On
    This is not a common problem, but one you may encounter which can create a very dangerous situation. Always stow drink bottles in holders or the boot of your vehicle.

    Quickly put your car into neutral, apply the brakes, steer your car off or to the side of the road.

    Do not turn your ignition off until you have left the road and stopped. Secure the car with hand brake then select Park or Neutral. Disengaging the ignition while driving may cause the steering to lock.

    Once your car is stationary switch the ignition off straightaway, as there is a high risk your engine will become damaged.

    Contact The RAA on 13 11 11 or local mechanic and have your vehicle checked to ensure it is safe to be driven.

      Tim was kind enough to provide Maddy with log book sessions after she had two negative experiences with other instructors. Tim helped Maddy get her licence quickly and with patience and encouragement, and he was even kind enough to rearrange his schedule so that she could do her final test on Christmas Eve. We can't recommend Tim enough, he's a wonderful instructor.Thanks again, Liz and Maddy
