You are driving through a tunnel. Your vehicle catches fire. What should you do?

The correct answer is, "Continue through the tunnel if you can."

The main dangers in a tunnel fire are suffocation and smoke. If you can do so safely it’s better to drive a burning vehicle out of a tunnel. If you can’t do this, pull over, switch off the engine, use hazard warning lights and phone immediately for help. It may be possible to put out a small fire but if it seems large do NOT tackle it!

But I find it difficult to understand. What if the engine explode while you continue driving through the tunnel? Very confusing.

Why is this warning sign confusing?

This sign gives you an early warning that the road ahead will slope downhill. Prepare to alter your speed and gear. Looking at the sign from left to right will show you whether the road slopes uphill or downhill.
