Mahindra Trucking – Drive safe this monsoon

The number of automobiles is increasing rapidly. As a result, Indian drivers are stressed to drive safe particularly during the monsoon season.
The rainy season adds to their motoring difficulties. So it is necessary to observe all the safety precautions while driving to ensure a safe ride on the road.

The major concern is driving on the highway. The wet asphalt makes it difficult for loaded trucks to travel on the highway. Truck drivers should follow highways rules & regulations along with practicing safe driving. 

Here are some tips & pointers which will help you to ride safe on the highway.
  • Wipers and Headlights – Use the wipers, headlights & taillights even in day time as it helps other drivers on the highway to notice you.
  • Maintain proper distance with fellow drivers on the highway to avoid collision. Drive stable and maintain the slow speed to prevent any mishaps on the road. 
  • Drive slowly through water clogged areas.  Evade driving on full throttle to avoid water to enter the engine cylinders. 
  • If the truck engine is wrecked while in the water, avoid the push-start procedure as it will lead to damages to the engine. Consult a mechanic or a professional technician to prevent further damages to the truck. 
  • Driving a truck or any other commercial vehicle in monsoon requires calm handling. Be light on the steering and the accelerator. Sudden movements and rough turns can disturb a truck enough to skid due to the wet asphalt.

It is always a hassle to transfer goods in the monsoon. Trucking companies are surely paying necessary attention towards making their trucks safe to avoid any misfortunes. 
But it is also essential for the driver to follow all the rules and take proper care of the truck.
