Traveling in the mountains is as fun as it is risky, especially if you are planning a road trip. You may have to face problems like rough roads, blind turns and land slides while visiting hill stations. As the monsoon season has also started, there are more chances of accidents, but most of the people living in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Chandigarh go on weekend trips to Uttarakhand and Himachal as these other It is closer than the places and there are many options to roam here. If you too are planning a road trip here, then it is very important to know about some rules that will keep you safe.

don’t drive too fast

Never make the mistake of driving at speed in order to reach early, no matter how expert you are in driving. In hilly areas, the roads are not very wide, in such a situation, if the balance deteriorates while driving fast, you can become a victim of a big accident. 

take care of gear

Always drive in second or third gear on hills. Of course, it will take you time to reach your destination, but at least you will be safe. 

drive on low beam

One should always try to drive on the mountains with low beam as it gives you a clear view of the vehicle coming from the front. 

horn rule 

There are also some rules for playing the horn of the car on the mountains. Always honk at the turn otherwise even a slight mistake can put you in danger.

when to brake  

There are dangerous turns on the mountain, so don’t use brakes there but keep the speed low. Always use the brakes sparingly when going up or down a slope. This will save you from accident.  

Be careful while overtaking

What will happen, you will reach your destination late and you will get less time for fun, but at least you will be safe. Do not attempt to overtake on mountains unless you have a clear view of the road ahead. Drive in your lane only.
