It’s that time of the year when all the homes are enlightened with colourful lights and treat yourself with favourite savouries.Fireworks and crackers make it irresistible for us to stay away from them.Although dangerous we manage to make ourselves and near ones protected from it.However,our buddies on four wheelers are often left to fend for themselves.Instead of waking up the next morning with a sight of damaged vehicle,it is important to check the tips mentioned below.
For those who do not own a private parking space,making an arrangement for the one in this diwali is necessary irrespective of the ban on the crackers and fireworks.A covered garage will always protect the car from all kinds of threats from the fireworks.
Avoid car covers
Avoid car parking covers as most of the covers are not fire resistant or susceptible to sparks or fire when keeping the car outside in Diwali.
Alertness while driving
While driving,watch out for the people lighting firecrackers on the road side.In the event of a sudden loud cracker burst near you,there are chances that you loose control on your vehicle and steering .Moreover,you do not want the crackers going off near the fuel pipes and tank.
Keep windows shut
Always ensure that the car windows are tightly shut while running or when parked.The interior is inflammable and there is a possibility of catching fire form random bursts of the fireworks inside the car.
Festive season or otherwise make a habit to carry a fire extinguisher in the vehicle.Carrying it makes it easier to control the fire when in the awkward conditions.It should be kept where it is easily accessible.
As a responsible citizen,avoid burst the crackers behind someone else’s car,just the way we don’t want anyone playing around the car with the crackers.Let us make this Diwali bright and cheering with the diya and enlighten everyone around.Happy Diwali!
