.Wear your seatbelt at all times, and ensure all passengers are wearing theirs

.Don’t drive drunk, or under the influence of any drugs

.Be courteous and considerate of other drivers

.Rest when you are tired, or every 2 hours or 200kms

.Obey the speed limit, and drive according to the conditions of the road

.Check your tyres, and replace any balding tyres, including the spare

.Check that your brakes and shock absorbers are in good condition

.Check for cracks or chips in your windscreen, as these may get worse on a long journey, and cause problems with visibility

.Check windscreen wipers (front and back) and ensure they are working properly. Don’t wait for a heavy downpour to discover your wipers don’t work

.Check that all electrical components on your vehicle work. If you are in doubt, have them checked out

.Stagger your departure dates to and from your holiday destination to avoid the heavy traffic. (Issued: Automobile Association/AA)
