Stay Cool Behind The Wheel – Literally!

Driving on a hot day can be very uncomfortable. Some cars are fitted with air conditioning, although it comes with a price, and increases fuel usage! Try slowing down to 30mph or under, turn off the air con and open your windows instead. If you’re driving faster than 30mph, it’s advisable to use the air con and have your windows closed!

Take a bottle of water on your travels to stay hydrated. If you’re tired, a caffeinated drink may prove beneficial. Of course, if you can avoid driving on a sweltering hot day, then do so – walking is healthier and you will reduce the traffic on the roads, and the likelihood of other drivers getting hot and cranky behind the wheel!

Safe driving from Britannia!
