Road Safety Awareness Month... Lets make the road safer together!

While maintaining safety in JIO’s operations and promoting the safety of road users is, and has always been, a critical focus of our teams, we need all of you to do your part to stay safe, and continue ensuring the safety of all stakeholders of Highway 2000 East-West.

Therefore, we take the opportunity this Road Safety Awareness Month to remind you of the following

“Rules of the Road”:

  1. Pedestrians and Cyclists are NOT allowed on the HIGHWAY as they are at great risk.
  2. Ensure that your vehicle is in good mechanical condition.
  3. Do NOT litter the roadway as this is a breach of the law and dangerous to other motorists.
  4. Do NOT exceed maximum speed limits and obey any temporary speed limit imposed during road works or maintenance.
  5. Drive in the left lane, pass on the right.
  6. Do NOT stop on the HIGHWAY unless directed to do so by the police or traffic authority. Stopping on the hard shoulder is strictly limited to emergencies. Picking up or dropping off passengers is NOT permitted on the corridor.
  7. Pay attention to emergency personnel and obey their instructions during hazardous situations.
  8. Do NOT reverse, cross the median strip, or drive against the traffic flow. If you have missed your exit or have taken the wrong route, continue to the next exit.
  9. In case of any emergency on the HIGHWAY, pull over safely, turn on your hazard lights, take note of your location, and contact the Emergency Toll Free Number at 888-429-5632.
  10. Do NOT tow or attempt to repair a disabled vehicle, but contact the Emergency Toll Free Number at 888-429-5632 and the Operator will dispatch an authorized wrecker to assist you safely.

Have a safe travel on Highway 2000 East-West!
