In response to heavy rainfall, the Highway Traffic Police is advising drivers on the highway to maintain a safe distance of 50 meters between vehicles. The inclement weather conditions pose potential hazards on the road, necessitating increased vigilance and adherence to safety guidelines.

Electronic warning boards, strategically placed by the Road Development Authority on the highways, are conveying essential messages to drivers, emphasizing the importance of cautious driving in adverse weather.

With reduced visibility due to the darkened skies, the Highway Traffic Police is urging drivers to switch on the front lights of their vehicles. This measure is crucial to enhance visibility on the road and ensure the safety of both drivers and passengers.

The advisory comes as part of proactive efforts to mitigate the risks associated with challenging weather conditions. Drivers are encouraged to heed these warnings, exercise patience, and prioritize safety while navigating through the affected areas.
