Driving on Christmas Day

So we’ve finally made it, tomorrow is Christmas Day. With a bit of luck, your car has served you well over this busy Christmas period, with all your shopping and delivering of presents (although many of us will still be delivering until late tonight… you know who you are!)

Tomorrow over 4 million of us will take to the roads of the UK to visit friends and relatives, and although you will be busy enjoying the festivities of the day, do not forget to take care of your car this Christmas Day. Unfortunately traffic and congestion do not take Christmas Day off, so be wary of other cars around you, and try not to contribute to the heavy volume of vehicles on the road tomorrow.

Also keep in mind that your car can break down at any time, and that tomorrow is no different. Remember to perform all of the necessary pre-flight checks – oil, fuel, tyre pressure, and central heating, plus all of the other essentials needed to complete your journey. The last thing you want is for your car to break down and leave you stranded for the best part of Christmas Day!

Finally, drive safely this Christmas Day. At Britannia, we know that nobody wants to be stuck behind the wheel on Christmas Day of all days, but remember to take your time, be aware of other road users and pedestrians, and take into account that at this time of year the weather can be at its most treacherous.

Merry Christmas tomorrow, from all here at Britannia Driving School!
