Sharjah: Rafid Automotive Solutions has launched the ‘Adventure Safely’ campaign to raise awareness and ensure the safety of amateur and professional desert drivers. The campaign, supported by Sharjah Police, commenced last Friday, October 30, and will take place every Friday for the next three weeks.
Salim Saeed Al Midfa, CEO of Rafid Automotive Solutions, said: “Desert driving is an incredibly arduous task. Besides being skilled, drivers must exercise extra caution when driving across sand dunes and steep sandy cliffs. Additionally, the vehicles used during the drive must be well-equipped to get past the sandy territories. Furthermore, after leaving the desert, drivers must check the condition of the tyres and the air pressure in them as the change in surface can make them susceptible to damage or in certain cases even cause the tyre to burst.”
