Rains create potentially dangerous weather condition for motorists, which requires vigilance to avoid likely accidents and loss of lives.

There are few tips that you should consider when on the roads, in case of heavy rain: avoid speeding, don’t drive through flooded road; if you cannot observe clearly in at least 100 meters ahead, wait until the weather normalize; always turn on the headlights preferably on a dipped beam, keep a good distance from the car in front of you. Watch out for obstacles like trees, stones and others objects that block the road.”
