10 Two Wheeler Safety Tips to Make Your A Diwali Safe Celebration.

Diwali is always celebrated with pomp and show. You light up your homes and burst firecrackers to celebrate the festival. With friends and relatives visiting you, Diwali becomes a major celebration. In fact, Diwali is considered to be one of the biggest festivals of the Hindus. Despite its charm and fervor, Diwali also brings with it various safety concerns.

Firecrackers and diyas pose a fire threat which can not only cause physical injuries but also cause a lot of damage to property. Even your two-wheelers are prone to fire hazards and therefore it becomes necessary to safeguard your bike against Diwali related hazards. Here are 10 safety tips for your two-wheeler during Diwali so that you can celebrate a safe and worry-free festival:

#1 Comprehensive two-wheeler insurance

The first step to financially safeguard your two-wheeler is to buy a two-wheeler insurance policy. Besides being mandatory, the two-wheeler insurance policy also pays you financial compensation if your bike is damaged by fire or other contingencies. Thus, vehicle insurance forms an important step towards protecting your bike. When buying the policy, always choose a comprehensive plan. Though third-party insurance would provide the mandatory cover, it would not cover the cost of damages suffered by your bike. Since Diwali poses risks to your bike, you need a comprehensive coverage, not third-party insurance.

#2 Park your vehicle in a designated parking space

Designated parking spaces help in protecting the bike from being exposed to firecrackers or candles, lit during Diwali. So, space provides a safe shelter for your bike.

Parking
Park your vehicle in a designated parking space.

#3 Choose a covered parking space

Open parking spaces are a risk as firecrackers can land on the bike and damage it. Therefore, try and pick a covered parking space, preferably in the basement, where there is no chance of firecrackers damaging the vehicle.

#4 Choose a commercial parking plot

If you don’t get the desired parking space in your apartment or if the allotted parking space is in the open where firecrackers would be burst, choose a commercial parking space. Though you would have to pay for space, your bike would be safe from firecrackers.

#5 Avoid using bike covers

Bike covers are not fireproof. In fact, their materials might actually be inflammable which would catch fire and cause more damage. During Diwali, as there is no chance of rains, avoid covering your bike with bike covers.

#6 Avoid driving through lanes where crackers are being burst

If any particular area sees a lot of firecrackers, you should keep away from that area. Try taking a cab instead to pass through since cabs are safer than bikes.

#7 Be careful when driving during Diwali

During Diwali, people burst firecrackers on the streets as well. That is why you should be careful when traveling on your bike. Drive slowly on streets where people might be bursting crackers. Be alert about crackers being burst on the street when you drive. If you see crackers being burst, wait until it is safe to drive through.

First-Aid
Always carry a first aid kit with you while driving.

#8 Carry a first aid kit

Always carry a first aid kit in your bike whenever you travel. The kit becomes all the more relevant during Diwali when you are likely to face injuries and might need medicines.

#9 Carry a fire extinguisher

A small fire extinguisher is also a great help in case your bike catches fire and you need to extinguish it. So, carry a small extinguisher with your bike, especially during Diwali.

#10 Keep your policy documents handy

Your vehicle insurance policy details should be carried at all times. Carry the policy document with your bike so that in case of a claim you can call the insurance company immediately and furnish the details of your policy. If you have roadside assistance and face any damages during Diwali, the insurance company would send you immediate help if you can provide them with the policy number quickly after the accident.

So, these tips help you care for your bike during Diwali. Having an insurance policy is the most important tip. Other than these, if you follow the above-mentioned tips, your bike would be safe.

The quad camera setup at the back is vertically placed under the glass with the OPPO logo and “Designed for Reno” — protected by “O-Dot” ceramic bead that aims to prevent the camera from getting scratches.

The volume rockers are on the left and power button on the right, both quite easy to operate.
