The most important tip is to drastically reduce the vehicle’s speed as soon as the amount of dust blowing through the air causes a drop in visibility, he said, which means that motorists are encouraged to slow down as quickly as it is safe to do so, and avoid slamming on the brakes or stopping in the middle of the roadway.
