Are you a confident driver but just the thought of venturing on to the motorway makes you quiver? The experience of driving on a motorway can be very intense and nervousness can affect all drivers, not just new or elderly.
Cold weather, dark mornings and evenings and plenty of rain. Often, the sanctuary of our car is somewhere welcome after the soaking-wet dash from the office or supermarket. So, to make sure your car makes it through the toughest part of the year, we’ve put together some tips.
Darker days and more unpredictable weather present more risks. Rain, wind, snow and ice can all play their part in winter, meaning it pays to be prepared and drive to the season. Here we look at how drivers can help to keep the roads safe during winter.
Most think winter tyres are only good for the occasions when the roads are covered with snow and ice but modern tyre development has meant that the latest products are a whole lot more versatile. In many other European countries it is a common practice for drivers to fit cold weather tyres in late Autumn and revert back to Summer tyres in the late Spring. So why is this not the case in the UK?
The clocks have changed, and the darker nights have drawn in which means you may find your morning and evening commute isn’t as bright as it used to be. The darker nights can leave us feeling a little bit blue but can also mean the roads, and driving, can be more dangerous. So, here are our top tips to keep you safe whilst driving in the dark.
All the signs are there, yes, autumn is here. It’s a tricky season, one-minute dry and bright, the next wet, windy and dark. And any morning you might be greeted with thick frost. But with a little thought and preparation, drivers can be prepared.
These days we take a lot of new developments in technology and safety for granted. If you’re a driver you’re probably used to in-car technology such as cruise control, parking aids, Bluetooth and even DAB radio becoming a standard feature in most new cars these days.
For some, summer is the best season of the year. It means good weather, longer days and trips to the beach, but it can also cause some hazards on the roads. If you’re driving this summer, make sure you’re aware of the possible dangers, especially on longer journeys, and how to handle them.
Did you know that there is more chance of someone feeling sick on a long journey than there is of a car breaking down? With so much time spent on preparing our cars for long trips, isn't it time we gave ourselves a pre-journey check?
