RTA Safety Tips

It is important to practice safe driving techniques in unfavourable weather conditions. In that regard, below are some tips for driving during bad weather conditions.

During Rain

  • Check the validity of the brakes, tires, and headlights of your vehicle before starting your journey.
  • Whether it is a short trip or not, make sure your wipers work well for a safe journey.
  • Make sure to increase the safety distance between you and the vehicle ahead.
  • Drive slowly so you can always keep control of your car and avoid worrying about having to stop suddenly behind other vehicles.
  • Make sure to check your tires for a safe journey.
  • Always follow traffic signs and do not instantly press on the accelerator when the traffic light turns green to avoid losing control on the slippery roads.
  • Drive cautiously and carefully at a reduced speed limit for your safety.
  • Do not overtake other vehicles except when necessary.
  • Turn on your headlights and keep a safe space between the vehicle ahead of you to avoid a collision.

During Dust
