Description

The Gulf is prone to a good sandstorm every now and then. When they do occur, they can pose some serious problems on the road. This is because visibility drops to zero at that point. You're never advised to be on the road during a sandstorm. It's always better to avoid driving during one, but you can't predict when it's about to occur. People who want, or have, to drive should remain alert because strong winds can result in sudden periods of limited or no visibility. This comes about as a result of the dense sand and dust that permeates the atmosphere.

Having said that, if you have to drive during a sandstorm, stay alert by following these 6 tips.

What are the top sandstorm driving safety tips you must follow?

Prepare by checking the weather forecast

It's always a good idea to be proactive. If there are signs of an impending sandstorm, check the weather forecast before you head out. With weather updates readily available on our phones or laptops, it'll help you make a decisive choice. If the sandstorm is suspected to be strong, it's best to avoid driving. Avoid any additional risk by staying at home.

Turn on your exterior lights while driving

If you get caught up in a sandstorm on the road, turn on the vital exterior lights while driving. This includes your fog lights, your headlights, and your hazard lights as well if you're stuck in traffic. Since there's such low visibility, you must inform other vehicles of your presence on the road. The best way to do so - turn on the bright lights. You’re advised to keep a periodic check on all your lights for such occasions. If you find that some or all don’t seem to be working, it could be an electrical issue. The battery is the most common source of such electrical problems. Stay proactive by getting a car battery replacement from a trusty automotive maintenance solution like Service My Car. This will ensure you stay prepared for adverse driving situations like a sandstorm on the road.

Don't stop your vehicle in the middle of the road

If you're driving through a sandstorm, it's not advisable to stop your car unless there's some area away from the road. This reduces the risk of potential collisions. Instead, you must drive slowly and steadily. As a bonus tip - you're advised to drive in the middle lane and increase the distance between your car and the one that's in front of you.

If you happen to have a car breakdown, you need to have the best roadside assistance on speed dial. With our convenient roadside assistance services, you can get a car recovery in no time.

Keep all your windows closed

It goes without saying, but driving in a sandstorm is very dangerous. If any window, or the sunroof, is open, dust or sand can get in your eyes. This can divert your focus from the road, and increase the risk of an accident. It's best to close all the windows and vents in your car when there's a sandstorm.

Maintain a safe distance with the vehicle in front of you

As this is the standard of general driving etiquette, extra attention is necessary to this rule in a sandstorm. Reduced road visibility also makes other vehicles invisible, which leads to unwanted surprises if you drive very close to other cars. Slow down your vehicle and give other drivers enough room to move around safely.
