The 10 Unwritten Road Commandments

Do you know the rules of the road? There’s more to it than just reading signs y'know – it takes good manners and care if we’re going to Share The Road.

Posted on

1. Thou shalt always show thanks with a nod or wave when someone stops to let you through.

A good deed should always be rewarded.

2. Thou shalt not ignore a fellow road user in need.

Is something up? This is your moment to be a hero, hero.

3. Thou shalt not tweet and move simultaneously.

Tweeting, texting, and modifying thy playlist can wait until you get to the other side.

4. Thou shalt respect thy fellow road user's personal space.

Because tailgating freaks everyone out.

5. Thou shalt phone thy pals in a bit.

Because no one needs to know you're picking basil up on the way home.

6. Thou shalt not be that guy.

Revving isn’t cool. Who decided revving was cool?

7. Thou shalt remember that everyone is trying to get somewhere, not just thou.

Take thy sweet time by leaving early enough to do so. Not only will you have time to grab a coffee when you're done, you won't have ended up somewhere weird or bumped into someone because you panicked. Everyone wins!

8. Thou shalt love thy neighbour

Be nice! Hug chickens like you would like to be hugged.

9. Thou shalt indicate like indicating is thy favourite thing ever.

Unexpected changes in direction are for reality TV stars in need of press. Let everyone know where you're headed.

10. Thou shalt keep thy eyes peeled.

Because anything can happen. Most importantly: mind the ducklings crossing the road and tweeting at the same time. They didn't read these rules.

Everyone's happier when we #ShareTheRoad.
