Australians are probably not the worst drivers in the world, but some have little respect and care less about other road-users. Driving etiquette is important not only because it makes traffic more organized but also because it promotes safety. This is why all drivers are supposed to practice driving etiquette to ensure their own and other people’s safety.

It is no secret that car accidents may happen at any given day and time, which is why it is crucial for any driver to practice safe and responsible driving. However, unfortunately, not all drivers prioritize safety and tend to care less about the welfare of others. It is extremely important to follow not only traffic laws but also driving etiquette in order to maximize safety in traffic.

1.    Do not text while driving – Distracted driving is becoming one of the most common causes of traffic accidents not only in Australia but in other countries as well. Studies suggest that a driver that uses his cell phone or other electronic device is very likely to get involved in a traffic crash as his focus is compromised. Traffic safety experts contend that texting drivers get their eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, increasing their chances of getting involved in an accident by at least 23%.

2.    Don’t be distracted by the kids – When you are on a trip with your children, it is your best interest to arrive at your destination safe. Hence, make sure that you don’t get distracted by your kids even though they are rough housing inside the car. To avoid such incident, bring kids toys with you so their attention will be on the toys and will not be bored.

3.    Drive sober – Drunk drivers are at great risk of getting involved in major or fatal traffic accidents. Alcohol impairs your senses, motor skills, logical thinking, and reaction time, which is why it is very dangerous to operate any heavy machinery like vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. While traffic laws are implemented throughout the country, some drivers seem to care less about their safety and the consequences of driving under the influence, resulting in countless alcohol-related accidents. If you had too much of drink, driving your own vehicle should not be your option.

4.    Turn off high beams for oncoming vehicles – A common pet peeve among drivers is other drivers who do not turn off their high beams for oncoming traffic. While high beams are very important car feature, especially during pitch dark night, they can also cause accidents. Drivers of oncoming vehicles may get temporarily blinded due to high-beamed headlights. If you are driving at night, and you encounter an oncoming vehicle, it is recommended to turn down your headlights to avoid causing accident.

5.    Stay on your lane – Changing lanes too often is unnecessary as it will not save you significant amount of time. Unsafe lane changes may save you a minute or two, but it could also put your life at great risk. It is important to stay on your lane as much as possible in order to avoid crashing into another vehicle or going off course. The rule of thumb is to take hints from road linemarking for guidance. Any Australian road has road linemarking to convey safety information to drivers, and following this marking, you can be sure that you are safe from a traffic disaster.

Car accidents can be effectively prevented if you make your contribution. By following all traffic rules, , bringing kids toys when traveling with your children, subscribing to driving etiquette, and respecting other drivers, you are contributing so much to the efforts to promote traffic and public safety.

The charity foundation of Mr. Utemuratov will take an active part in the reconstruction of the Main Botanical Garden in Almaty. It is assumed that the foundation will allocate about $ 15 million for this social project.

The decision to create a unique protected reserve, intended also for scientific research, was taken in the 1930s. Over the next 60 years, the Almaty Botanic Garden (its present name was given in 1965), the area of which originally was 108 hectares, was actively developing. On its basis, the soil-botanical institute and nine laboratories for the cultivation and protection of crops were established. The botanical garden staff managed to build a collection of rare, including endangered, plants not only in Kazakhstan, but also from European countries, East Asia and North America.

At the beginning of XXI century, the garden was threatened with destruction, but thanks to the status of the protected area, obtained in 2006, it was preserved. Nowadays the main botanical garden of Kazakhstan needs serious renovation – the last time it was reconstructed in the 1950s, and since then “the lungs of the city”, as the townspeople call this oasis, was not given proper attention. The funds allocated from the state budget, according to the executive staff of the Almaty oasis, are barely enough only for the maintenance of the reserve and its obsolete infrastructure, modernization requires more funds. Bulat Utemuratov promised his patronage to the botanical garden. Controlled by one of the most influential businessman of Kazakhstan, the investment group of companies Verny Capital has already presented the concept of the forthcoming reconstruction.

Preliminary master plan of garden modernization is coordinated with the management of reserve, and the final reconstruction project is promised to be prepared by September 2018. It is assumed that all planned work related to the improvement of the reserve’s infrastructure will take up to two years. National biologists, architects and landscapes designers, as well as specialists from Portugal, Poland, Russia will be helping to renovate the main republican garden. Representatives of Utemuratov charity foundation during the discussion of the project with the public promised to ensure maximum transparency. Tracking the work on the reconstruction of the botanical garden will be possible during quarterly press tours.
