DRIVING

Its time to re adjust your driving style too.

1.         Start practicing the habit of leaving a good 7 to 10 meters of space between you and the car in front of you. It helps when you have to brake in slippery or extremely wet conditions. You’ll have enough space not to hit the car in front of you.

2.         Take note and remind yourself where deep potholes are on your regular routes. Form a habit of avoiding them even if you don’t see them. It will help when the rains come and the whole road gets covered by water including the pot hole.

3.         Remind yourself not to speed into water puddles during the rains.

 This is a comprehensive write up of all you need to do to prepare your car for the coming season. Please note that somethings here may not apply to your car or some parts may still be in good conditions in your car, don’t proceed to change them, its just a waste of money.

Note also that all this does not take the place of your regular scheduled maintenance. So still do that too.
