We suggest our readers to be extra careful while driving in such conditions. Firstly, you must avoid taking your vehicle out if so much water has been blocked on the road. Things could get very dangerous not only for the vehicle but also for you. During the monsoon season, don’t attempt to take your cars to places where you are not familiar with the surroundings. Even if you are, make sure to drive extremely slowly if you don’t see the road in front of you. Stay safe and drive slowly is the mantra to get through the monsoon rains.
