Play it safe on the roads these holidays With School Holidays and Easter coming up in April, many of us will be planning to hit the wide open road and get out of town. Before you leave make sure your vehicle is safe for the road, make sure you get enough rest and plan ahead. You should always plan your trip before heading off. The Queensland Police reckon that good preparation for your long trip includes checking your vehicle is safe for the trip, by double checking the following essentials on your vehicle. 1. Tyres - check they are in good condition and at the right pressure including the spare 2. Fluid levels - brake, coolant, oil, clutch, automatic transmission, power steering, water 3. Lights - headlights, high-beams, reverse, indicators and brake 4. Windscreen wipers are working in case of wet weather 5. Battery 6. Fan belt condition and tension 7. Coolant hoses - ensure your coolant does not leak and the hoses are in good condition 8. Tow bar and connections (if towing) 9. Ensure you have enough fuel for the journey. If you aren’t sure about undertaking any of these checks why not make sure – book your car into one of our local professionals to give you piece of mind before you travel. Once you are on the trip you should take a break every two hours and don’t drive for more than 8 - 10 hours per day. The Queensland Police also recommend you plan which rest areas and driver reviver sites you will pull into on your journey. During autumn you will find Driver Reviver Stops on March 31 and April 1 and 2 and then again over the Easter period from Good Friday, April 14 through to Easter Monday on April 17. So be prepared, do the right thing while you are on the road, and enjoy the break away from the everyday.
