Why driving after eating too much could be as dangerous as drink driving
We recommend all drivers to take a break between eating and driving your vehicle this festive month! Research by Green Flag showed 87% of Brits set to experience effects of overeating whilst driving.
Don’t get the ‘festive food-lag’
Do you drive to your parent’s house after having your Christmas dinner? Well have a break, the after-effects of eating can be feeling sluggish, being unable to control falling asleep and having slower reactive times. We don’t want you to crash!
It’s Christmas next week and people are in getting festive, and so are their cars.
Motorists who decorate their cars could be at risk of several road laws, and even an unlimited fine!
Some people really do get carried away, but you don’t want to get a road ban just before Christmas. A big concern is that they may fall off the car and into the path of another driver. Resulting in being charged for “driving without reasonable consideration for other road users”.
Bright lights can really confuse other motorists, particularly the colours they normally see on the road such as red, yellow and green.
Please think of others and yourself for that matter, and of course have a very Merry Christmas from everyone at Britannia Driving School.
Most never talk to anyone about giving up their car!
According to a new study, most older drivers never talk about their ability to drive safely to their family or medical professionals.
We urge family members to have discussions with their older loved ones about how they feel whilst driving and how their eyesight is. Not only are they putting themselves in potential danger, but others around them too.
“It’s basically a hotel room so it has everything inside it,” he says. “Whether it’s six hours or 10 hours, you’ll feel comfortable inside it.” – Steve Lee, Designer.
Lee has come up with an idea that could make the future of travel awesome, ‘The Autonomous Travel Suite’.
Is this far-fetched? Not at all, self-driving cars are already on the road and people are travelling. Lee predicts this vehicle will be on the road by 2030 picking up a traveller at home and taking them to their destinations for up to 10 hours.
Waymo has introduced a small self-driving service in the Phoenix area after waiting for nearly a decade.

.A human will be behind the wheel in case the robotic vehicle’s malfunction. However, this was not enough to prevent the accident in March in the same area. Uber hit and killed a pedestrian crossing a darkened street in Tempe, Arizona, seven months ago.

You might think, well that’s what I have my phone for? But doesn’t it make more sense inside the car to use your voice? You want to keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, so it makes more sense.
