RAINY WEATHER SAFETY TIPS

The rainy weather is here with us. As a water institution we thank the Almighty for this natural blessing as it is an opportune time to harvest water for domestic use. It is also time to consider planting of trees. However, on the down side rains can wreak havoc in some quarters, one of which is the roads. Roads become more slippery and visibility is sometimes also affected making driving a challenge. CWWDA has partnered with NTSA to engage our customers on road safety. We are delighted to share with you some rainy weather road safety tips from NTSA here below
