The foggy scenario in the city has subsequently increased the chances of road accidents due to low-visibility. People are requested to stay at home and avoid driving late at night, especially under intoxicated conditions. Late-night workers are tackling the weather by igniting bonfires and it is now a tough period for the homeless, taking up space on the roads during this cold weather. So kindly do your part and donate woollens to the needy because under these conditions, we need to stick together but really far apart.
