Thunderstorms, heavy rain, snow and gale force winds expected in parts of SA

Singing in the rain is fun. But driving? For some people, it is very stressing. Personally i think we all need to be courteous on the road. I travel daily to work  using the Higginson Highway -N2 route to North coast Road in Durban and let me tell you that traffic is always stuck on but while you are stuck in this traffic that is when you get a chance to see how courteous drivers really are, well it is just a handful of good people. Some days we just thankful, we make it home safe no matter what time it is.

Remember the most important factor  is to be observant at all times.

When conditions are less than ideal, drivers need to stay alert and focused on what’s going on around them.

Turn on those headlights. Wipers should always be on .

Turn off cruise control. Ironically, on rain- or snow- slick surfaces, cruise control may cause you to lose control.

Slow down. Speed limit signs are designed for ideal conditions.
