WEATHER CONDITIONS AND SPEED
- SLOW DOWN for POOR VISIBILITY when there is insufficient street lighting at night, when the sun is low on the horizon, in mist, in rain, or during veld fires or storms. Reduce your speed to below the speed limit as these conditions reduce vision and prevent a driver from reacting in time to hazardous situations.
- SLOW DOWN when ROAD CONDITIONS are not good. Driving at high speed on a wet road surface, on gravel or through roadworks will cause a vehicle to skid if you have to brake or change direction suddenly. You have then lost control as the vehicle will continue skidding at the same speed and in the same direction as it was travelling
