It is important to plan your route and plan ahead when setting off on a journey especially when you are driving alone. There are some obvious but simple things to consider:
Breakdown Cover – You will feel relieved when you’re in a sticky situation and you have someone to call. Keep the number for the breakdown service in your vehicle so it’s there should you find yourself needing it.
Most people will own a mobile phone already but it may be worth investing in one in case of an emergency.
Many situations that arise could have been easily avoided. Make sure you have enough fuel to get you from A to B, taking into consideration getting stuck in traffic. Lock your doors when driving, particularly if you are driving alone and at night.
When parking, try to park in a well lit car park or street, where there are plenty of other vehicles.
For real peace of mind, tell somewhere where you are going and when you estimate to arrive at your destination.
