    first of all wear a seat belt while drivin or even sittin in front seat. here in india wearing seat belt is like a punishment ppl dont want to wear it. it for ur own safety u need to wear it. when ever i drive i make sure first thing b4 switchin on the engine i wear the belt when somebody sits on car with me first they wil ask me is it compulsory to wear the belt here haha.
    Never talk over the phone while drivin. it is very dangerous. i hav seen ppl talking and drivin they dont even know wat dey r doin on road. even talkin thru hands free i dont recomend as u cant so multi tasking on road.
    Never drink and drive its danger for ur self and other on road too. Make a point if u want to drink keep a driver who doesnt drink.

    FIAT'ians,
    in our cars the indicator,head light stalk is located on the left hand side as compared to the other cars.why is it ?
    is this change for safe driving ?
    (Normally i guess most of us drive using right hand,with the same hand we also use it for pass lights on highways sometimes makes driving uncomfortable escpecially handling of steering wheel,might be this is the reason in FIAT cars ,the indicator headlight stalk is fitted on left hand side)

    Ganges what FIAT has done is they have placed the full left hand drive assembly as such into the right hand side. The same goes with Ford also.

    Cinju bhai, even if you make the car a right hand drive , or left hand drive, our Fiat's indicator stalk will remain on the left only. :p :p

    Many European , American and Japanese cars have had the indicator stalks on the left.

    Cheers

    @Cinju: No fiat hasn't did the way you are talking about.

    If you have done a test ride of Figo or Fabia or Polo.

    These cars are converted from left to right.

    How we can prove it? Just by locating the bonet opener lid.

    In fiat bonet opener lid is at driverside below right side air vent.

    But in Figo, fabia & polo the same is located at the passenger side left air vent.

    In fact why ford has done this with figo I don't know because I have used the Fiesta UK version & the lid was below steering column.

    Talking on the phone is ok for few seconds just to get the message and to convey that you are driving now, I think the other end would be happy to hear from you that you are driving and will back back soon, HeShe will love your concessional for safety.
    But please no test Messaging and taking pictures while driving......
    Just enjoy the beauty of nature, if the nature sight is not great, then enjoy the great Fiat....
