When you’ve got a road trip or a long journey on the cards, there are countless things to think about. Maybe you’re going on a family holiday and want to get your snacks or your music playlist in order. Perhaps it’s a business trip with an important meeting at the end so you need to make sure you’ve had your best suit dry cleaned before you hit the road. Whatever it is that’s preoccupying your mind, make sure you always send car safety straight to the top of your priority list.
We recently carried out a survey of 600 members of the British public to find out more about how they prepare for a long journey and how they make sure their vehicle is in good condition before getting behind the wheel. Covering everything from car safety checks to things that people like to carry with them for those just-in-case moments, we’ve put it all together in one handy eBook to point you in the right direction.
We put together our brand new eBook as the ultimate guide to car safety checks and prepping your vehicle before any long journey. Running some simple tests or getting any potential problems checked out before hitting the road goes a long way towards reducing the number of unnecessary accidents and improving the safety of you and your passengers. From tyre tread depth and wheel alignment, through to windscreen condition and liquid levels, we’re covering every base because you just can’t be too careful.
