1.CHECK YOUR CAR TYRES.
Some Motorist forget that the tyre is the only part of the vehicle that has direct contact with the road, its care should not be compromised. Motorists are further advised to avoid the use of over-inflated or under-inflated tyres.
2. FIX YOUR VEHICLE WIPER IF IT IS FAULTY.
For every driver it is mandatory to fix the vehicle wiper blades, head and tail lights, brakes and to avoid the use of worn-out tyres. Don’t get stuck in the rain only for you notice that your wiper is bad, you cannot see clearly while you are driving in the rain. This is very unsafe for you .
3. BUY GOOD TYRES ,NOT WORN-OUT OR USED(tokunbo ) TYRES.
Motorists to ensure regular maintenance of their vehicles and desist from the use of worn-out tyres and used (tokumbo) tyres, in view of inherent traffic hazards. It stated that under rainy condition, the grip of worn-out tyres is often seriously affected, adding that there is danger of the car skidding and not coming to halt within the safe distance after application of brakes.
