Why is it particularly important to carry out a check on your vehicle before making a long motorway journey?

You'll have to do more harsh braking on motorways

Motorway service stations don't deal with breakdowns

The road surface will wear down the tyres faster

Continuous high speeds increase the risk of your vehicle breaking down

Before you start your journey, make sure that your vehicle can cope with the demands of high-speed driving. You should check a number of things, the main ones being oil, water and tyres. You also need to plan rest stops if you’re making a long journey.
