Traffic rules

The traffic regulations describe how a road user must behave on public roads, so that traffic flows safely and smoothly. It is expected that all road users know and apply the traffic regulations. Sometimes traffic regulations will appear a bit unclear. However, all rules in the regulations have been well thought through, so it is also important to know the underlying line of thought.


Safety

Safety

To improve the safety of the passengers and the driver, there are a number of safety systems in your vehicle. Below you will find the most important ones.


Seatbelt

Anyone who participates in a passenger car in traffic must always wear the seat belt or be protected by an adapted and approved security system, such as a carrycot or child seat.


Child restraints

Child restraints


Airbag

The airbag is inflated very quickly with a collision or heavy impact. The airbag forms a protective cushion and helps the passengers against injuries.


ABS

Newer vehicles are usually equipped with an 'Antilock Braking System' (ABS). Refer to your vehicle manual for more information on how to use ABS. The ABS system ensures that you can stop the vehicle without slipping. The ABS system comes into operation when you have to stop very quickly and press the brake pedal hard.


ESP

The 'Electronic Stability Program' (ESP) helps the driver to control the vehicle when it is in a critical situation. A microcomputer checks the signals from the ESP sensors and checks 25 times per second whether the driver's steering input matches the actual direction in which the vehicle is traveling. When the vehicle is moving in a different direction, ESP detects the critical situation and reacts immediately. It uses the vehicle's braking system to stabilize the vehicle. ESP will brake the wheels individually so that the vehicle is stabilized and steered in the right direction.


GPS

A Global Positioning System, also known as GPS, is a system designed to help navigate on the Earth, in the air, and on water.


Handsfree

Hands-free is an English term that indicates that a device can be operated without the use of the hands. It is mostly used in the sense of mobile telephony in the car. The counterpart is handheld, a device is held in the hand during operation.
