Factors to keep in mind to keep you and your vehicle safe this Diwali

Diwali is the most widely celebrated festival in India and it is just around the corner. People go to each other houses, distribute sweets, play card games and burst firecrackers. However, the risk of being involved in accidents or any other mishap during the time of Diwali is high so the driver should be extra careful. Here are some tips to keep you and your car safe during this Diwali:

  1. Always keep a portable fire extinguisher in the vehicle:

    It is always advisable to keep a portable fire extinguisher in your car and more so during the Diwali season. There are possible chances of a firecracker accident in the vehicle for which the driver should be prepared.
  2. Keep the windows closed when driving the vehicle on the road:

    When driving through a  busy street on the eve of Diwali it is advisable to keep the windows of the vehicle closed. Closing off the window would not only keep the smoke from the firecrackers out of the car but will also reduce the noise pollution.
  3. Keeping a first aid box in the car:

    It never hurt to keep a first aid kit in the car. With so many crackers around on the eve of Diwali, keeping a first aid box could come in handy in emergency situations. It could be used to treat potential burns and injuries that can be caused by firecrackers.
  4. Parking the car in a location which has some sort of cover:

    Parking the vehicle under a cover on the eve of Diwali is advisable as any objects or pieces of firecrackers could fall on the vehicle and damage it.
  5. Avoid using covers for the car:

    Car covers are not fireproof and if any firecracker drops onto the car it can start a fire which could turn into a catastrophe. Even if you are not able to find a location with some cover to protect your car from objects dropping out of the sky, it is advisable to leave the car without a cover.
  6. While driving, keep an eye on people who burst firecrackers on the road:

    Despite trying to avoid people bursting firecrackers on the road while driving, you still need to take precautions while driving the vehicle on the road. If you find anyone bursting a firecracker on the road, it is best to stop the vehicle at a distance. It is better to be safe than sorry.
  7. Never drink and drive:

    One of the major contributors to road accidents on the eve of Diwali is drink and drive offence. Diwali is a festival to celebrate and enjoy, not mourn.

Following the tips mentioned above will keep you and your vehicle safe on the eve of Diwali.
