Ahead of the long weekend, make sure your vehicle is well maintained, safe and road worthy. A poorly maintained vehicle is more than just a frustration, it’s a danger on the road. A quick professional vehicle safety check prior to your trip could help save lives on the road this holiday season.
“While human error is the biggest cause of car accidents on the road, badly maintained vehicles also make a large contribution to the national road toll every year” says Hugo Grobler, National Franchise Manager at Auto Care & Diagnostics (ACD). “Taking the time to properly prepare your vehicle for long distance travel will not only make your trip more pleasurable, (let’s be honest there’s nothing worse than an aircon that doesn’t work in the midday heat), but a car in optimum condition saves lives.”
