During the current year, the winters have had a strong foothold in Pakistan and if you reside in the outskirts of Punjab and adjoining areas, there are chances that like every year, you might have been the victim of smog. With the details of daily incidents on a rise, CarFirst considers it as its utmost responsibility to brief their customers regarding the tips that can help them to drive safely during smog season:
Reduce the speed:
It isn’t surprising that the first rule while driving safely in smog is to drive slowly. With zero visibility and health hazards providing an ideal condition for incidents to happen, it is very important to maintain a steady driving pace which guarantees little or no chances of a potential incident.
Minimize the distractions:
Imagine yourself being roughed up while driving under zero visibility and the last thing you need is a distraction of any sort.
During smog, it is highly advised to put distractions like your cell phone in a place where you won’t be tempted to reach for them while driving. This guarantees optimum concentration while driving and trust us, it’s not a bad thing to have in such awful driving conditions.
Roll down your windows:
Rolling down your windows while driving during smog is not a bad idea. After all, it is a small trick that does wonders for you as it helps you to listen for approaching cars and emergency vehicles. In addition to this, it also helps you to maintain an adequate distance with the front and rear vehicle.
Don’t hesitate to pull of away from the road.
The last thing you need during your smog drive is confusion because there are very strong chances that entire traffic that you might be subjected to is more or less confused.
During such times, pulling off away from the road is an order of the day. Afterall, its better to be late and careful than being involved in any unwanted incident.
