Some things remember driving highway daily post lifestyle news. Our highways are unique in that we have to share space with bullock carts, cycles, three-wheelers, cars, SUVs, tankers, buses and stray animals at all times. It is best to be very cautious and take some safety measures while driving on our highways. Remember to keep your mobile fully charged before you start your drive and your fuel tank filled. Check your spare tyre and tool box. Have all documents pertaining to your car and your driving license with you. Most importantly avoid driving in the night. Though many highways in India do not have strict enforceable speed limits use your discretion and drive according to the condition. Do not be in a rush to reach your destination.If it is raining or there is heavy traffic adjust your speed accordingly. Do not keep honking and trying to overtake every vehicle in front of you. After you have overtaken a vehicle from the right side move to the left lane and stay there. Indian highways especially those connecting villages have unmarked humps. While travelling at high speeds on highways these sudden humps on the road may cause the car in front of you to suddenly slow down or veer. Always be alert for these and keep a safe distance between vehicles.It is very important you to read the signs on the road so that you anticipate narrow bridges, and railway crossings. While driving on a two lane highway when a vehicle coming from the opposite direction flashes his headlights, the driver is asking you to slow down and let him pass. So, slow down and don’t flash your headlights at him instead. Also do not turn your headlights on during dusk.
