Keep Left on a two-way road to allow traffic from the opposite direction to pass on your right and on a one-way road to allow vehicles behind you to overtake from your right.
When Turning Left keep to the left side of the road you are leaving as well as the one you are entering. When turning right, move to the centre of the road you are leaving and arrive near the left side of road you are entering.
Slow Down at road junctions, intersections, pedestrian crossings and road corners and wait until you are sure of a clear passage ahead. if you are entering a main road where traffic is not being regulated, give way to vehicles passing on your right.
Traffic lights change their colors in the same order every time. In most English-speaking countries, traffic lights usually change in this order:
Red light on: This tells drivers to stop.
Green light on: This means the driver can start driving or keep driving.
Yellow light on: This tells drivers to stop when it is safe to, because the light is about to turn red.
Invention of Traffic Lights
Garrett A. Morgan, an African-American inventor, invented one of the first traffic lights. He was one of the first people to get a patent for a traffic light.
The current day traffic light with three colours was invented by William Potts, a police officer.
A Zebra Crossing is a pedestrian crossing marked on a road by broad alternate black and white stripes. Once on the crossing the pedestrian has right of way.
Zebra crossings were originally introduced in law by section 18 of the Road Traffic Act 1934.
A road surface or pavement is the durable surface material laid down on an area intended to sustain vehicular or foot traffic, such as a road or walkway.
