It’s important to be cautious when driving and to not be distracted while on the road. Previous incidents of accidents in the highway due to foggy weather were reported and while the weather may be clearer nowadays, it does not mean that we have to stay complacent. We still need to ensure safety while driving not only for us, but for our passengers. We hope this serves as a reminder to everyone.
