JAMMU, Jan 6: Ford India presented seven tips to become a safe and vigilant driver.
According to the release issued by Ford India, when driving in winter conditions, visibility is key so you need to make sure your windscreen, windows and mirrors are all free from grit and dust. Your wipers need to be in good working order to clean your windscreen effectively.
In addition to doing your own regular checks, a visit to your local dealership is advisable to make sure your vehicle is in tip top condition. The dealer can do a professional inspection of your windshield wipers, front and rear defrosters, car battery, lights and safety system to ensure all are in good working order, the release reads.
“Before you set off, check the weather forecast. It is also a good idea to listen to traffic announcements to find out about any accidents, road closures or road advisories that you may encounter on route. Trips can take longer during winter weather than other times of the year, so leave some extra time”, it states.
The release further reads that in case you are planning to travel to the hills which are prone to snow, make sure your fuel tank is full before you set off. Frosty conditions may cause delays and you don’t want to be stuck in the cold having to walk to the nearest gas station. Your vehicle should always be equipped with a torch and a first aid kit. Take a fully charged mobile phone with the phone number of your breakdown provider stored in it so you can always call for help. And to keep you warm, don’t forget to pack a blanket, some food and a flask of hot tea, the release reads.
“If there is a fog warning, delay your trip until it clears. Incase that is not possible, always drive at a slow speed and use low-beam headlights. It’s prudent to drive a little slower than normal and always make sure you have enough space between you and the car in front. Keep your lights on low when driving in the snow”, the release states.
