Worried about driving in the heavy showers? Here are some useful road tips to ease your drive during the rainy season.
Know the Route: Make sure you’re aware of the proper route of your destination. Avoid suing any congested alternative routes or roads that are flooded.
Follow the Rules: Adhere to road rules and respect the fellow drivers. Following road rules reduce accidents rates during the rainy season.
Lights Matter: Make sure that your vehicle is visible to your fellow drivers and other pedestrians. Use appropriate lights to be seen during the heavy showers.
Slow Down: The roads are slippery. Slowing down will avoid many unpleasant situations on the road during thunder showers. Take extra care to slow down when rain first starts, as fresh rain will bring out the oils on the roadway and make roads more slippery.
Give Room: Make sure to give enough space to other vehicles and always main an appropriate distance between two vehicles. In case of a sudden breakdown, your vehicle wouldn’t be stuck in the middle.
Sudden Movements: Avoid sudden movements on the roads. Stick to your lane and adhere to the given speed limit.
Watch for Pedestrians: Watch out for pedestrians on the road and on pedestrian crossing lines. Pay attention to the road and leave distractions aside.
