NTSA has dropped another crucial message to all Kenyan drivers and motorists especially those driving through major highways. According to the report shared through social media platforms, drivers and motorists have been urged to turn on the vehicle headlights when they driving in the rain.
Therefore drivers and motorists especially those driving through busy highway are urged to adhere traffic rules and regulations. It's important when drivers drive in the rains to be aware of the stopping distance for their vehicles. It is twice as long as when driving on dry road surface. Therefore this means that it crucial for a driver to increase the distance between them and the vehicle in front of them when it is raining.
NTSA recommends that when driving through rains drivers and motorists should stay approximately four or more seconds behind the vehicle in front of them. Therefore they should give a driver enough time to stop suddenly, if necessary in order to avoid car accident and more.
Report shared by NTSA indicates that over 45 percent of vehicle crashes that are classified as weather related occur when it rains. Worryingly, too many times drivers don't respect how hazardous it is to operate a vehicle through the rains
According to the report, when it begins to rain the road surface become wet the chances of being in an accident are greater than during snowy conditions.
