Before heading off on your holiday, take the time to make sure you all get there in one piece.
RACQ give us some tips with a few things to consider before hitting the road –Is your speedo accurate?
-Check your tyres.
-How’s your windscreen? Severely damaged windscreens can not only obscure the driver’s vision, but also weaken the car’s structure and affect the way passenger side airbags deploy.
-Positioning your sat-nav; If fitted to the windscreen, it should be low down to minimise the intrusion into the driver’s field of view. Consider placing it in the lower right corner of the windscreen to minimise obstruction to the driver’s vision.
-Check your headlights; Incorrect headlight alignment is a prime cause of dazzle for drivers and is a common source of complaint. If the beams are wildly out of alignment it may be necessary to temporarily cover each light in turn to determine in which direction they need to be adjusted.
-Sharing the road; It’s important for drivers to be aware of other road users like cyclists, trucks, emergency vehicles and animals.
-Keep a safe distance from other vehicles on the road to maintain safe break distance should you need it.
-Take your time. Get there in one piece and allow plenty of time to relax and enjoy the journey.
