Avoid being injured in a public place in Warwickshire
Although summer driving is not nearly as risky as winter driving in so many ways, the heat of summer, and the fact that you are likely to take the car out more often and for longer, means that your car needs to be prepared for these months.
You don’t need to start preparing your car for the summer months in advance, as it shouldn’t take too long to do. Once you feel that summer has properly arrived then you can start looking at your car and decide what needs to be done to prepare it for your summer driving, in order to avoid being injured in a public place in Warwickshire.
- Prepare for overheating. In the summer, a major cause of accidents and breakdowns is overheating. If you want to avoid overheating then you need to check your engine cooling system before you take a long drive, and every day if you are driving your car regularly. If your engine does overheat, it is best to phone for help than to try to solve the problem yourself, as an overheated engine can let out scalding steam.
- Check your antifreeze. Although this may not seem like an important point, as antifreeze is mostly used to keep your engine systems from freezing in cold weather, the antifreeze also works to prevent the corrosion of the engine.
- Check your fans and air conditioning. In the hottest of weather, your air conditioning is all that is between you and a massively overheated car. Sitting in a metal box in direct sunlight is bound to cause problems, so make sure everything is working to keep you cool, or at least that the windows open.
- Check your bulbs regularly. It is not that you are more likely to need your bulbs in the summer, but just that you are less likely to notice if a bulb has failed. Remedy this by checking them all regularly.
