The winter season in the UAE is always a welcome respite from the scorching summer heat. During the winter season in the UAE, we usually cannot avoid foggy weather. Here are some tips to help you stay safe even when traveling in such conditions:

It becomes even more crucial during foggy weather to get a car wash in Dubai and keep your distance from the car in front to avoid any accidents.

·  Get a Car Service: Every time you plan to go on a road trip in the UAE, it is ideal to get a pre-car service and general maintenance for your car despite the summer or winter season. In general maintenance, the fluid levels like coolants and engine oil, battery charge, air filters, and spark plugs are checked and it is made sure that your car is all set for road trips.

·  Turn the heater on – Foggy weather could lead to condensation building up inside your car. By turning your heater on, your windows will stay clear and improve visibility.

 ·  Turn the fog lights on – Not all vehicles come with fog lights on the front, but all cars should have rear fog lights especially since the law requires it. Turn the fog lights on while driving through fog, then turn them off once the fog clears to avoid “dazzling” other motorists. It is also suggested to get headlight restoration done before your road trip.

  ·  Get your Brakes Checked It is very common that during winters, the car brake caliper gets gummed up and stuck often due to cold weather. It is very important to get the brakes replacement in UAE, get the brake caliper checked, and brake fluid changed before going on road trips. Getting brakes services is a crucial and mandatory safety measure.

 ·  Make use of other safety features: Consider using other safety features, such as the car defroster and windshield wipers. In particular, windshield wipers are essential for keeping your windshield clear during foggy conditions. Make sure your flashlight is working and your car battery is charged.  

·  Keep Flat Tyre Kit: If you are planning a road trip in UAE and thinking that a spare tyre in your car boot will keep you hassle-free, you are mistaken.
