The street rule are rules that you should follow for your safety as well as other peoples safety on the street.

1. Don’t look in the direction of the approaching car. If you must, and you see a car coming, cross.

Particularly when not at a zebra crossing.

That’s the only way to assert oneself and gain respect on the streets of this city.

2. Occupy as many lanes as you can. Swaddle, at a minimum, between two lanes.

You know you’re doing what you’re meant to when you’ve frustrated the living daylights out of the driver behind you.

3. Don’t indicate. If you do, do so at the last minute when you’re already making a turn.

How much advance notice does one need, anyways?

4. Put your hand out of your window for a guaranteed yield from drivers behind and to the right of you.

You can throw in a thumbs up if you please, but that has less to do with their volition and more to do with your bullyish behavior, which we encourage.

5. When stopping to pick up pedestrians, feel free to stop your vehicle where you see fit.

Don’t bother yourself looking for a space closest to the curb so as not to hold up traffic.

In fact, try and aim for the middle of the street. It’s always fun seeing cars trying to maneuver around you.

6. Don’t give way to another car, particularly one driven by a woman.

Hurl insults at her, both subtle and explicit depending on the situation and your mood.

None of them know how to drive anyway.

They should’ve never been allowed on these streets.

As long as they’re there though, make their driving experiences hell.

7. Don’t allow pedestrians to cross the street, even if they’re at a zebra crossing.

Show ’em who’s the boss of the streets.

8. If you’re a diplomat or have a diplomatic license, or that of the defense forces, drive like a maniac.

No-one will dare stop you, and even if they did, just flash your credentials.

Don’t they know you have license to disobey?

9. Once you’re done with a bottle, or a banana, feel free to throw it out the window.

The streets will welcome your trash, with open arms.

warned, though – the streets will sometimes throw it back at you – especially if your window is still open.

10. As you pass a driver that’s been acting a fool on the streets, stare him/her down.

Glare as hard as you can. That will be sure to get them to act right on the roads.

11. If you’re a pedestrian, don’t limit yourself to the pedestrian walkways.

The streets are your oyster baby. Claim them. This may be the only place you can!

Some important rules to be followed while on or near the road are.

Understand Traffic Signals.
Stop, Look, And Cross the road.
Pay Attention to vehicular movement around you.
Don't Run On Roads.
Always Use Sidewalks/Footpaths.
Use Pedestrian Crossing for walking across road.
Never Stick Hands Outside The Vehicle.
Never Cross Road At Bends.

The basic rules of the road are.

Always stop behind school buses with red flashing lights.
Always yield to any and all pedestrians.
Always maintain a safe following distance.
Always signal before changing lanes or turning.
Always observe your surroundings even when reversing.
And remember that slow traffic keeps right.

The first rules of the road is to focus on your driving and avoid distractions.

The same applies when riding a bicycle or motorcycle you should always focus on your riding and driving and pay attention to your surroundings.

Also follow all traffic laws, stop at stop lights, stop signs yield for pedestrians etc.

The most effective way for you and others to stay as safe as possible on the road is to respect traffic laws and other drivers.

Traffic lights and speed limits exist for a reason, and lanes are there to keep cars from colliding with one another.

The 4 rules to remember when driving are.

Rule #1: First to arrive, first to drive. If you arrive at the intersection first, come to a complete stop, then proceed.
Rule #2: Right of way goes to the right.
Rule #3: Straight doesn't have to wait.
Rule #4: Left turn yields to right.

There is one rule that the Department of Motor Vehicles recommends all motorists do to avoid collisions with such objects.

It advises that drivers should scan the road at least 12 seconds ahead to avoid potential trouble spots and to identify possible road hazards.

Some other safety rules of the road when driving are.

    Always wear a seatbelt.
    Avoid distractions.
    Do not cross the speed limits.
    Service your car regularly.
    Follow traffic signals.
    Maintain lane discipline.
    Be careful during bad weather.
    Maintain a safe distance.

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Explanation The golden rule of driving is to treat other drivers the way you want to be treated. Obey traffic laws, drive responsibly, and avoid taking unnecessary risks that may put you and others in danger.

Drivers must always yield the right-of-way to pedestrians, even if they cross the road illegally, such as failing to use a marked crosswalk.

Pedestrians are required to yield to vehicles that have a green light at an intersection.

Pedestrians who are blind always have the right-of-way.

When two vehicles get to the intersection at the same time, the vehicle on the right goes first; it has the right-of-way.

If neither the base rule or furthest right rule apply: Straight Traffic Goes First.

Some ways to be a good driver of the road include.

    OBEY ALL TRAFFIC RULES.
    SLOW DOWN!
    KEEP YOUR CAR IN GOOD RUNNING SHAPE.
    WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT.
    AVOID DISTRACTIONS.
    ADJUST YOUR ACCESSORIES.
    DON'T TAILGATE.
    BE PREPARED.
