PANJIM: Goa Police has issued an advisory on precautions to be taken in the monsoon. A statement issued by the Goa Police has asked motorists to ensure that their vehicles are working reliably before taking a trip in the rains.

“All motorists should regularly check vehicles wipers, head lights, tail lights, brake lights, side indicators and brakes to ensure they are functional and while checking special emphasis be given on the condition of tyres,” it says. 

The advisory asks motorists to ensure that mud flaps are fitted to prevent water and mud from splashing on other riders/pillions as it could risk their lives. “Two-wheeler riders and cyclists should wear bright coloured rain wear/rain coat for better visibility to other motorists. Similarly always wear helmets with straps securely fastened. The pillion rider should also wear helmet, avoid driving fast in water-logged areas, drive within the speed limit, maintain distance from other vehicles and apply brakes gently to avoid skidding of the vehicle,” the guidelines state. 

The department has also advised not to use an umbrella while riding a two-wheeler, not overtake when it is raining and not to splash water at pedestrians.
