Road Safety Reminder for the Week

ROAD CONDITIONS – STOPPING DISTANCE
In estimating stopping distance, you need to allow for your own reaction time and for braking distance. In following another vehicle, you should allow at least 1 car length for every 10 mph of speed. The road surface condition figures greatly in your stopping efficiency.

At 50 miles per hour, a car with good brakes needs at least 200 feet of dry road in which to stop, but under wet conditions, 3 to 12 times as much distance is needed, making such high speeds extremely dangerous. To keep from skidding on wet, slippery streets, drive slowly. Allow more distance between your car and others. Apply your brakes or gas pedal slowly and easily so that your starts and stops will be smooth.

According to Guam’s Traffic Violation Bureau’s (TVB) Traffic Fine Schedule

GCA (Guam Code Annotated) Code Description Eff. 01/01/14
3205G Brakes Required - Maintained in Good Working Condition $80.00

3301B Fail to Stop Within Assured Clear Distance $400.00
