Teletrac Navman has published a shareable guide highlighting 20 illegal habits drivers may not know are against the law.

Released in support of Road Safety Week, the telematics company says there’s no room for complacency when it comes to road safety and its guide addresses overlooked driving laws to help raise awareness, reduce risk and prevent drivers from committing offences.

Some of the habits included in the infographic include; playing music that is too loud, not clearing snow from your roof and parking on the pavement.

“Particularly at this time of year as we’re nearing Christmas, drivers face increased pressure to stay on schedule, which in turn may impact their behaviour behind the wheel. However, it’s vital that safety always stays at the top of their agenda to avoid the repercussions of offending.

“Many driving offences are clearly defined. If you drive at a speed faster than the limit on a particular road, you’re breaking the law. If you cross a solid white line to overtake another car, you’re committing an offence. However, there are other driving offences that drivers may be less aware of. As such, the new guide reinforces the numerous motoring laws drivers need to be mindful of,” said Peter Millichap, UK marketing director at Teletrac Navman.
