Summer driving: tips from IAM RoadSmart

Do you have plans to go away this summer? Our head of driving and riding standards, Richard Gladman, has put together some tips to keep you safe on the road. Plan your journey ahead of time to ensure you know when and where to take breaks. Before you leave, make sure you check for any traffic updated that may cause you delay or to re-route
Check your car before you leave. This should include, tyre pressures, tread depth and condition, and checking fluids. Top up your screen wash and oil (if needed) and check for any underlying problems before you set out on your journey. A good starting point is to do your POWDERY checks
Stay hydrated. Keep bottles of water in your car in case of any emergencies. We recommend having plenty of water as it is essential to stay hydrated to maintain concentration
