Car Care for Back to School
The kids are going back to school soon, but is your vehicle prepared for back-to-school safety?
For those parents who are too far away to walk their kids to school, driving is usually the best alternative. But before back to school driving returns, there are a few things you can do first or consider that can help you, your kids and other school goers stay safe as they travel.
Look out for crossings.
It’s been a good few weeks since we saw any school crossing patrols on the commute to work. So when you’re on the school run or doing your daily work commute, stay focussed and keep an eye out for our fluorescent friends, to avoid causing an accident.
Share the road.
As a driver on the road, it’s your responsibility to make sure you safely share the road your using with others. But this doesn’t just apply to other passenger vehicles but also pedestrians and cyclists. So with the coming increase in younger people about to return to the roads, make sure you become extra cautious and courteous on your way to school.
Maintain a healthy vehicle!
When it comes to maintaining a healthy vehicle, there are a few things you have to look after to make sure you’re driving safe on the roads. Regular checks on your tyres, fluids, and brakes can be the difference between reaching your destination safely and an unexpected breakdown.
However not everyone is comfortable with working on or taking the full responsibility of maintaining their own vehicles, and that’s where Croxdale Fast Fit can help you. So make sure you include a FREE vehicle health check on your to-do list and before setting out on the school run.
Book your vehicle into one of our 7 Autocentres found across the North East for a complete safety inspection. We carry out a 30 point inspection of your vehicle to highlight any areas that you need to be aware of that may present unnecessary and unexpected expenses in the future.
