Driving Myths & Facts
- Myth- One or two pints don’t have any effect on driving.
Fact- This is not true as this varies from person to person. It all depend on your tolerance to alcohol. Just because your friend can drive with it, does not mean you can do it too. Moreover, drunk driving is offensive. So, forget one or two, you can’t have anything.
- Myth- Driving barefoot is illegal.
Fact- Driving barefoot is not illegal. It is said so because it can cause your foot to slip off the brake and accelerator pedals, making you prone to an accident. It is recommended to wear hard soled shoes as they form a great pedal grip, ensuring a safe and smooth driving.
- Myth- Eating While driving is illegal!
Fact- Oh My God! Where does this came from? It is not illegal to eat while driving but it is recommended not to eat while driving as it can distract you. Even a single second distraction can greatly damage your car or get you injured.
- Myth- You can’t be fined for slow driving.
Fact- Driving too fast or too slow can lead to an accident. Both are signs of dangers and one can get fined for driving too slow or too fast.

Fact- First of all, this is not legal to do so and itself goes for a penalty! The plates used to reflect the flash is sold illegally and would make you arrested right away. On the top of that, not each and every speed camera flashes!
- Myth- If you are late on examination day, you will not pass!
