Driving Safely In Monsoon : A Guide

Sponsored By:

Nothing beats driving around Dubai when it’s raining – monsoon is a rare sight here in the UAE and while it’s the best time of the year for residents to enjoy the weather, monsoon driving also brings a lot of challenges when driving. 

Given that we hardly see any rainfall in this part of the world – it’s natural to be out of habit when it comes to monsoon driving – here are some tips to help you stay safe and drive better this monsoon. 

Ensure Good Wipers

Working set of windshield wipers are the most important tool that you can have in the monsoon – ensure you have clean blades for a streak free cleaning.

Wipe the wiper blades with a tissue to remove stuck debris and sand particles to avoid scratching the windshield

Tyres With Good Thread

Tyres are the most crucial part of the car that have contact on the road and keep you safe while giving you enough traction and help you steer with. Having the right amount of thread pattern on your tyres ensure you are safe while driving around flooded streets. 

Ensure you have the right tyre pressure - Usually Recommended To Have 32-35 psi

Slow Down

The most important thing you can do when it rains is to slow down – not only does this help reduce the risk of impact but give you more control over the car should you have an accident of aquaplaning.

DO NOT Use Hazards

DO NOT Use Hazards to signal other cars about your presence – it is recommended to have your headlights and fog lights switched on – hazards are only to be used if you car has broken down or parked on the side of the road.

Turn On Headlights & Fog Lights. Do Not Use Hazard Lights

Driving On Flooded Streets

Flooded streets are the most dangerous things during monsoon – best to avoid these streets as much as possible. However if you do have to wade through, continue at a gradual pace keeping an eye on your surroundings.
