With summer just round the corner our thoughts turn to get-aways and daytrips – but first we should make sure our cars are in good shape.
Inspecting tyres, booking a service and making sure lights and indicators work should all be up there on the check list with buying suntan lotion and shorts!
The condition of your tyres can have massive effects on both your safety and your pocket, according to leading car parks supplier Breakeryard.com.
With the recession prompting Brits to shun the annual airport chaos and escape the sky-high Euro destinations, increasing numbers of holidaymakers will be spending their annual summer getaway in the coastal and cultural attractions across the UK.
But Breakeryard.com warns that holidaying on home turf can have its own problems if your car is not properly prepared and urges vehicle owners to follow a few simple tips for stress-free summer driving.
Their top tips include inspecting tyres to make sure they are correctly inflated, which will lead to safer driving and a reduction in fuel consumption; making sure your car is serviced and ensuring lights and indicators are in good working order.
