SABC News KZN Rains - Motorists urged to be careful amid wet weather conditions

The Johannesburg Metro police department (JPMD) has called on motorists to be extra careful in the wet weather. Rain is pouring in different parts of Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga and it’s expected to last throughout the week.

JMPD Spokesperson Wayne Minaar says, “Motorists are advised to adjust to driving in heavy rain. It would be necessary to reduce speed on wet roads and to keep a safe following distance as cars skew out of control when braking harshly on roads that are wet. It is necessary to ensure that wiper blades and brakes are in a good condition  and the drivers should keep the headlights switched on to increase visibility in heavy rain.”
