Everyone must remember that traffic laws exist in order to ensure that the road remains a safe place for both the vehicles and the pedestrians. Anyone violating these laws is not only putting themselves at risk, but also others.
Remember to have your license with you at all times. Driving without a license, or driving with a suspended license, is a sure way to get yourself a ticket in Alabama. If you simply remember to have your license with you, you can save yourself a lot of trouble in the end.
Also remember to keep your registration inside the vehicle at all times. This is another key thing for you to have when driving. If a police officer stops you and you do not have your registration, or your registration is expired, this is another sure way to find yourself getting a ticket.
Insurance. Without insurance, you are a danger to everyone on the road. No one will be happy when they get into an accident with your vehicle and you have no insurance to cover for the damages. If you do not have insurance or you have insufficient insurance, do not drive your vehicle.
Even if you remember to have all of the things you need in order to legally drive, there are still many things that you can do wrong once you are on the road. Try to ensure you do not do any of the following when driving.
No illegal U-turns. There are always alternatives to these dangerous and illegal maneuvers.
Running red lights or stop signs is also illegal and dangerous.
If you experience an accident, you are required by law to stop. Leaving the scene of an accident is considered a hit and run. These are extremely serious violations and can not only get you in serious trouble, but may also result in the death or injury of another person.
Speeding is a dangerous thing to do. The speed limits are made with your safety and the safety of others in mind. Ensure that you do not exceed the legal speed limit in order to help ensure that everyone gets home safely.
Never drink and drive. Drinking and driving is a major risk for everyone on the roadway. In addition to being illegal, drinking and driving can cause major accidents, and even result in the deaths of yourself and others. If you are intoxicated, have someone else drive.
