For a safe trip in conditions of winter, the National Public Security Inspectorate recommends the drivers to equip the vehicle correspondingly, with winter tires, chains and antiskid material. The recommendation was made after the State Hydrometeorological Service forecast low temperatures all over Moldova as of January 16, IPN reports.
The Inspectorate also calls on the motorists to check the lights, the level of oil, fuel, antifreeze, windshield washer fluid and the heating installation and to make sure the windshield, lateral windows and mirrors ensure good visibility, to drive slowly and not to venture into risky overtaking as the vehicles can skid.
The State Hydrometeorological Service issued a yellow code advisory for a cold snap all over Moldova until January 19. The temperatures are expected to drop to -15 degrees Celsius.
