TRANSPORT VALUES

For this reason, a set of five Transport Values have been designed aimed at getting people to reflect on their behaviour and attitudes. They are one way in which everyone can contribute in a positive and proactive way to improving conditions on the city’s roads.

ACCOUNTABILITY

  • I am responsible for my behaviour as a driver.
  • I take reasonable steps to accommodate others.
  • I comply with road signs and road markings.
  • I ensure my safety, and that of my vehicle and occupants as well as other road users.
  • I focus on what I am doing.

CO-OPERATION

  • Work with other road users for a safe travel experience.
  • Accommodate other drivers to avoid accidents.
  • Have the right attitude.
  • We ALL have the right of way.
  • Sharing the road will make our roads safer.

HONESTY

  • Always obey the rules of the road.
  • Be true to yourself and others.
  • Be honest – do not give bribes.
  • Truth living starts within.

RESPECT

  • Be down to earth – for example, avoid arrogance.
  • Roads are not only for me.
  • Don’t use vulgar language or obscene gestures.
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated.
  • I respect you. You respect me.
  • Like you value yourself – value others.

UBUNTU

  • I use this road because others use it.
  • Share the road and be considerate.
  • Acknowledge the other.
  • Together we can all be safe – relax.
