The Traffic police have asked people to be cautious while driving on the wet roads. In a message posted on the Hyderabad Traffic Police Facebook page in view of the showers in the city on Wednesday evening, the police said that while driving on wet roads make sure tyres, brakes and wipers are in good condition.

They said driving on wet roads require extra caution as the roads at this time are covered with dust and mud, which along with rain water form a film that reduces the grip of the tyre on the road and the car can easily skid under such conditions. “While driving through water logged areas it is best to drive in lower gears controlling the speed with the clutch. When water enters the exhaust pipe the cars engine can stop,” the message said.
