Driving during load-shedding can be frustrating and impact your road safety.
Azania sat down with the managing director of Rac Driving Solutions, Eugene Herbert to discuss how you can best navigate the roads when traffic lights aren't working.
Herbert says some drivers who usually behave well, resort to things they wouldn't normally do when traffic is affected by load shedding and it may be best to avoid the roads completely during these times if you can.
If you know in advance that there is load shedding, start planning your life around it. It may mean - as I did in some instances - just changing my appointments, I didn't go out.— Eugene Herbert, MD - Rac Driving Solutions
Secondly, switch on Google Maps. It gives me an indication of what the traffic is like and an indication of whether I should defer it.— Eugene Herbert, MD - Rac Driving Solutions
Leave with the right amount of time, plan it.— Eugene Herbert, MD - Rac Driving Solutions
