Expert tips for driving through tunnels
Are you planning a trip that involves driving through a tunnel? Here are a few rules you must follow to keep you and other drivers safe.
- Get in the correct lane before entering the tunnel. Although most do, some tunnels prohibit lane changes once inside. This will prevent any unpleasant surprises if it’s your first time going through the tunnel.
- Turn on your low beams as you approach the tunnel to improve visibility and make yourself seen by other motorists. Be prepared for your eyes to adjust to the light change as you enter and exit the tunnel.
- Respect the rules of the road inside the tunnel. For example, follow the posted speed and height limits. You should also keep a safe following distance and refrain from stopping or turning around.
- Adjust your speed according to the traffic, especially when light levels change.
