NOT TO WEAR A SAFETY BELT
The seat belt, which is located in the vehicle and usually has three fixed points, prevents the driver and other passengers from being thrown out during a severe accident and allows them to travel in a correct position. Not wearing the seat belt, which acts as a life saver in the vehicle, is one of the factors that directly increase the risk of death and injury in accidents.
Also, you don't need to just sit in the front seat to wear a seat belt! It is now compulsory to wear a seat belt in the back seat, and this includes a traffic ticket.
NOT FOLLOWING SPEED LIMITS
In Turkey, the leading cause of traffic accidents occur between "the way the vehicle speed, weather and traffic conditions required by the fitting of" getting in the first place. Over speeding not only increases the likelihood of the vehicle getting out of control, but also significantly affects the stopping distance when a possible danger is encountered. In addition, exceeding the legal speed limit causes the consequences of the accident to be aggravated.
DRIVING ALCOHOLIC VEHICLE
The vast majority of traffic accidents are caused by drunk driving. Drinking alcohol causes the driver's attention to be distracted, maximizing the risk of accidents for both his own vehicle and other vehicles.
