We all use the internet in different ways. For banking, shopping, emailing, chatting, downloading, reading the news, dating… the more that becomes available online, the longer the list becomes. Again, some of us do only one thing on the internet, while others do all of these things.
The other similarity between road and internet users is our level of experience and proficiency. The more we use either, the more we think we can do so safely, knowing how to spot hazardous or annoying situations and avoiding them. To a degree this is true, but there is a danger that as our confidence grows, we become complacent, thinking “it will never happen to me”. The Get Safe Online Highway Code is designed to cover everything we do on the internet and cater for all levels of proficiency, whether you are a beginner or just need a handy reminder of how to do things correctly.
