Monsoon season begins mid-June and ends September 30th, bringing with it some beautiful, but often unpredictable potentially dangerous weather conditions. From heavy rain causing slick roads and low visibility to large dust storms causing near blackout conditions on the highways – monsoon driving can be extremely dangerous. Monsoon storms can come and go quickly so it is best to check the weather along your travel route prior to hitting the road. Wait out the storm, remember they often pass by very quickly, so you can get back on the road safely in little time. Your safety is worth it.

 

Here are some suggestions for driving on wet roads or during a dust storm. For general travel safety advice and tips please visit the “Tips” tab. 

 

  • WEAR YOUR SEATBELT!
  • Dust StormsImmediately check traffic around your vehicle, (front, back, sides) and begin slowing down.
  • Completely exit the highway if you can. Do not wait until poor visibility to pull off the roadway.
  • DO NOT STOP in a travel lane or emergency lane. Pull completely off the paved portion of the roadway.
  • Turn off all vehicle lights. You don’t want others to follow you by using your lights as a guide.
  • Set your emergency brake and take your foot off the brake
  • Stay in your vehicle with your seatbelts buckled.
  • Be Patient, wait for the storm to pass.
