Drive Safely

Budget Rent-a-Car is a partner of Brake, the road safety charity.

To ensure safe driving, here is Brake's Pledge to Drive Safely
- a simple twelve-point plan that all drivers can follow:

BELT UP - front and back and ensure children are correctly restrained

    SLOW UP - abide by limits and only overtake if totally safe

    WAKE UP - never drive tired and take breaks every two hours on long journeys

    SOBER UP - "just say no" to alcohol and drugs if driving

    LOOK UP - look out for people on bikes, horses and foot

    WISE UP - if it's night, bright or bad weather, go slower

    BUCK UP - calm yourself before driving if stressed, angry or excited

    MOVE UP - adjust head restraints so the top is no lower than the top of your head

    SHARPEN UP - wear glasses or lenses if you need them

    SHUT UP - switch your phone to voicemail

    BACK UP - from the vehicle in front - it's your braking space in a crisis

    CHECK UP - check brakes, tyres, lights, mirrors and windows
