Driving in Monsoon:
4 Basics to Keep in Mind
When a thin film of water forms between the car tyres and the road, it is called Hydroplaning. It causes the vehicle to skid, especially while driving fast. So take it slow and don’t lose control over your car.
Make yourself visible
Heavy rains can cause a grey blur and drivers of big vehicles like trucks find it difficult to spot small cars. So, if you’re driving in heavy rain, turn all your lights on to avoid accidents.
Stay in the middle of the road
If drainage systems don’t work well, water can get collected on the side of the roads. Try and drive in the middle of the road to avoid water entering your vehicle parts.
Keep safe distance
When driving in heavy rain, keep a safe distance from other vehicles to avoid skidding or losing control of your vehicle.
