Driving Safety Tips – Rain Season

13/06/2013 0 Comments

Before You Move!

 

Make sure that your vehicle parts / accessories are in working condition

 

Replace old or brittle wipers

 

Make sure that you have enough Fuel in your fuel tank

 

While on the Move!

 

First and foremost: slow down! It takes longer to stop or adjust in wet weather

 

Stay toward the middle lanes – water tends to pool in the outer lanes

 

Drive on the tracks of a vehicle ahead of you

 

Don’t follow large trucks or buses too closely. Their tyres splash water that ultimately obstructs your vision

 

Be more alert. Watch out for brake lights in front of you

 

Turn your headlights on even in a light rain, or in gloomy, foggy or overcast conditions

 

Avoid off-road driving

 

Never drive beyond the limits of visibility

 

Never drive through moving water if you can’t see the ground through it; your car could be swept off the road.

 

When driving through a puddle of uncertain depth, go slow. If it’s deeper than the bottom of your doors, turn around and find another route

 

If possible, stay off the road during heavy thunderstorms

 

Always stay in touch with Weather page / radio channel / news bulletin
