Término o frase en español: ...medida de seguridad
I know that this is a safety measure, but I'm looking for a nice way of saying the sentence below (its for teenagers in the UK). My suggestions would be a less literal translation such as:

And remember: Be careful! It's your best bet against having an accident!

Or something along those lines... I want to avoid wordyness and sounding unnatural or too grown up for them. I would appreciate yur suggestions, full text below thanks

No lo olvides: ¡Se prudente, es la mejor medida de seguridad!
