CDLLife does NOT condone the use of handheld devices while driving. This video is only being used to illustrate poor visibility during a dust storm and to offer some tips!
Dust storm driving tips from NOAA:
- If dense dust is observed blowing across or approaching a roadway, pull your vehicle off the pavement as far as possible, stop, turn off lights, set the emergency brake, take your foot off of the brake pedal to be sure the tail lights are not illuminated.
- Don’t enter the dust storm area if you can avoid it.
- If you can’t pull off the roadway, proceed at a speed suitable for visibility, turn on lights and sound horn occasionally. Use the painted center line to help guide you. Look for a safe place to pull off the roadway.
- Never stop on the traveled portion of the roadway.
