There’s no denying that driving in and around London is very challenging. Most visitors to the city opt for taxis and public transport due to the problems associated with getting around the capital in their own cars. Nonetheless, there are valuable tips that you can take advantage of if you have no choice but to drive around London. Read on to find out more about taking the stress out of driving in London.
Looking for tips for driving in London?
If you are going to be driving around London, it’s vital that you comply with the congestion charge. You can pay the charge online. You will be fined if you drive around the capital without paying the charge.
Our second tip is to try and avoid the “rush hour”. The traffic between 7 am and 9 am is generally infamous due to how hectic things become, and it’s much the same between around 4:30 pm to 7 pm. Try to drive outside of these times if you possibly can.
Finally, make sure your tyres are suitable for use. If you are caught driving with worn down tyres, the penalties can be vast. If you’re hiring a car, make sure the tyres are in good condition before you start to use the vehicle.
