During the Autumn months, drivers face seasonal changes meaning that precautions and measures will have to be put in place by drivers to remain safe on the road. Some of the changes such as icy roads and the sunrise and sunset glares in rush hour traffic mean heightened risks of an accident on the road.
When driving in low sun conditions, prepare carefully for your journeys by checking there is no hazing on the inside screen and carefully check for chips, scratches or minor cracks that could potentially worsen your visibility in the sun.
Antifreeze And Windscreen Washer Fluid
Antifreeze is an already important part of maintaining your vehicle as is contains special additives which counteract corrosion. If your engine is frozen it’s very costly to manage and fix, so be proactive and ensure that your antifreeze levels are correct. The handbook will tell you what antifreeze to use for your car – mixing them can cause engine damage. Make sure your washer fluid is topped up to clear the screen away – and with good wipers you can clear the screen well and stopping the dazzle from the sun.
