How can I make driving more comfortable?

A few simple rules can make driving much more enjoyable:

  • Adjust your seat and mirrors carefully every time you get into the car.
  • Don’t drive when you’re tired.
  • Don’t drive for longer than an hour at a time on long journeys – get out and stretch your legs to avoid stiffness.
  • Ask your doctor if any of your medication affects your ability to drive.
  • Join a breakdown and recovery service for peace of mind.
