One of the key aspects many drivers seem unaware of is the importance of maintaining comfort when driving, especially on long drives across the country or on motorways.
Studies have shown that many drivers are not sat or positioned well enough in their vehicles, leading to an array of issues with comfort such as back and joint pain, and even in some cases leading to adversely affecting the motorists driving ability.
So what are the golden rules when it comes to comfort in the car? Well, in short, there aren’t any. All drivers are different and so will have different requirements when it comes to maintaining optimum comfort in the drivers seat. Factors such as height, weight, the clothing you drive in, and even health factors need to be taken into account to get the best possible positioning in your car.
Likewise, the car itself can make all the difference. Some cars may have a drivers seat situated closely to the dashboard, whereas another car may have a large steering wheel that prohibits the driver sitting too far forward in the vehicle.
The best way to get the best out of your car for comfort is to try messing with the settings, such as chair incline, chair positioning, steering wheel height, and mirror adjustments, so that your car is perfectly tailored for your needs.
Safe driving from Britannia!
