Severe storm weakens after lashing Joburg

- Wet road surfaces can cause tyres to hydroplane (skim on a thin layer of water).

- Wind creates additional problems for drivers as it reduces steering control.

- It can be especially dangerous for recreational vehicles and vehicles towing trailers.

- High sided vehicles and motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to strong winds.

- Sudden gusts of wind may present a unique risk as you cross a culvert or bridge, or drive through mountain passes and ravines.

- You may also encounter a small gust when being passed by a large truck or bus.
