A lot of us are using our cars less this year due to the impacts of coronavirus. So, how can you make sure your car isn't neglected?
- We've only been using our cars for essential trips or work
- A flat battery is the last thing you need when you want to get out
- Let's make sure our cars stay in shape while they're being used less
Check your car and tyres
As the days get shorter and we find ourselves driving in the dark more than the light, you'll want to make sure your lights, rear reflectors and both indicators are clean and working, and that no lenses are cracked.
Regularly checking your tyres is always important, no matter how often you use your car or how far you drive. The minimum legal tread depth is 1.6mm across the central ¾ of the tyre and around its circumference. However, you should replace your tyres well before they get to the legal standard.

So, while we’re all spending more time at home and less time in our cars, let’s not neglect them. Give them a clean, check their essentials and be road ready for the day you can head out to meet your loved ones.
