Warm Weather

So often in England we are dealing with cold weather. When it comes to driving, we are most concerned about the weather when it is raining. When it rains and the condensation starts it requires you to be extra cautious; you need to also think about braking and your increased stopping distance.

One of the few things we think about though is driving in hot weather. Hot weather can have an effect on us too. You can feel drousy, which is of course, never a good thing. To prepare your self for the heat, always keep yourself hydrated. Have a few bottles of water stashed away in the car. This will come in useful when you get into your car after shopping or visiting friends. If you do feel sleepy avoid driving and take some time to hydrate yourself.

When you are driving keep a constant flow of air coming in through the car. Should you be travelling long distances, plan for breaks at service stations. You don’t even need to buy anything. By simply getting out of the car and walking around a little you will benefit from the fresh air. Try and avoid travelling during rush hour when you are likely to be stuck in traffic.
