You need a clear head when riding a two wheeler as you need to have 100% alertness and 100% concentration.

If you answer YES to any of the following questions you should not ride:

  1. Are you taking any prescription drugs without checking for side effects related to drowsiness?
  2. Have you consumed alcohol or drugs?
  3. Could you still be impaired from taking alcohol or drugs the night before?
  4. Do you feel tired?
  5. Do you feel angry, agitated or distracted?
  6. Will you be riding between midnight and 6am? *

* Statistically, this is the most dangerous time to ride and your body clock is in ‘sleep mode’. If leaving for work before 6 a.m., make sure you get adequate rest the night before.

Do not eat, drink, or smoke while riding, as these activities will distract your attention from the road.
