Safety Tips for Holiday Travellers this Christmas
Travelling at Christmas time, particularly by car, can be stressful and demanding. But there are several safety precautions you can take that will ward off potential problems en route.
The key word is preparation, applicable to yourself, your passengers and not least, your vehicle. Don’t simply jump in your car and drive away as you could be heading for disaster.
Firstly, take a look at your car. Make sure that you have a spare tyre that’s properly inflated to the correct pressure. Also check that you have a wheel spanner and jack in your tool kit.
Check all your tyres for sufficient tread and pressure. Make sure your car windows are clean. It’s amazing how much road grime collects on your windscreen, making driving at night particularly difficult.
