How To Drive Through Tunnels?

This blog will look at driving through tunnels. Along the way, we’ll cover important topics like staying safe and what to do in an emergency.

How to Drive Safely Through Tunnels

When approaching a tunnel:

  • Get in the lane as soon as possible.
  • Check that your lights are turned on. It’s important to see a sunny day won’t help you when you’re stuck in a tunnel.
  • Keep an eye out for speed limits as you approach a tunnel, as they may change, so keep an eye out for signs near or on the tunnel entrance.

If traffic stops in the tunnel:

  • Leave a safe distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
  • If traffic is at a standstill due to congestion, turn off your engine.
  • Unless it’s an emergency, don’t get out of your car.

If you have a breakdown in a tunnel:

  • Turn to the left.
  • Turn on the hazard warning lights.
  • Turn off your engine.
  • Call for assistance using an emergency phone.

If there is a fire in the tunnel:

  • Turn on your hazard lights and move as far away from the fire as possible.
  • Turn off your engine.
  • If the fire is out of control, you should leave the tunnel as soon as possible by following the emergency exit signs.
  •  Request assistance from the nearest emergency exit.
