Safety Tips for You and Your Car

A thick layer of fog can definitely put a wet blanket over your schedule or special plans in Bahrain.

Category: Guide & FAQ

Keeping yourself and your car safe in Bahrain during this season, when it can get really foggy at any time of the day (especially during the wee hours of the morning), is extremely important to avoid unpleasant incidents.

A lot of working professionals may prefer to start their day very early to avoid the rush hour traffic. During the cooler months, heavy fog can often foil your plans and leave you with no choice but to slow down and get caught up in heavy traffic, even at six in the morning.

So what are the precautions that can be taken in Bahrain to keep your car safe, especially during fog season? Read on to know more:

  • Refrain from using hazard lights during intense fog; make sure your fog lights are on. Do not use high beam lights, as they will only reflect back, making it harder for you and other vehicle drivers to see.
  • Maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you. No rush is worth risking your life for. Slow down and be calm. Remember that sometimes heavy fog can give the illusion of dawdling movement even if another car is moving faster.
  • If under dire circumstances you are finding it extremely difficult to drive in heavy fog, pull over on the side till conditions improve.
  • Lastly, keep you calm. We all know how annoying being stuck in traffic can be and this is one of the main causes of accidents in Bahrain. Remember that your safety and the safety of other drivers starts with you!!!

Having your insurance up-to-date, following the driving rules to a T and most importantly, slowing down in extreme situations, such as foggy days, are some basic rules to follow and be a happy driver.

Whether you are obtaining insurance in Bahrain for your car or home, it is always a great idea to know what to expect from your insurance company. As a customer, you are entitled to the very best.
