Planning on going on a road trip over the Festive Season? Take the necessary steps and prepare for your long drive before you get behind the wheel and to stay alert and energised while you drive.
Here are some tips:
Stock up on sleep: It’s best to consider exhaustion before you begin your journey, not during. Get at least seven hours of sleep for two consecutive nights before the road trip to fill your energy reserves.
Safety first: Handle your steering and brakes with care. Check your tyre pressure on a cold start or before a long journey. Ensure everyone is wearing their seatbelts at all times. Only overtake when it is absolutely safe to do so and do not overload your vehicle.
