With summer just around the corner we have created a checklist of useful tips to help motorists take care and stay safe in the sun.
The advice is in response to research from the Department for Transport which shows that accidents actually increase once the sun comes out. Recent figures show that there were 6,290 accidents involving death or serious injury on Britain’s roads between July and September 2015. However, there are fewer of these accidents during the winter months, with 5,890 reported between January and March 2016.
Cameron Wade, Franchise Director at Lookers Audi, said: “Most people associate difficult driving conditions with snow, ice and darker nights, but it’s clear from research that more accidents occur in the summer. By taking a few minutes to check our cars before we set off and then consciously making a few minor adjustments to our driving style, we can all make sure that we have a safe and enjoyable summer on the road.”
We are urging motorists to take extra care during the warmer commute or when preparing their car for the summer holidays.
