Summer is here in all its glory and with its arrival also comes the arrival of pressure cooker driving conditions. Many drivers will be taking to the road stressed by holiday deadlines, long traffic queues, overheated cars and hot tempered drivers. This week’s tips give advice on dealing with road rage for riders and drivers from IAM RoadSmart’s head of driving and riding standards, Richard Gladman.
Richard said: “In the UK we have some of the busiest and most congested roads in Europe, so delays and frustration are inevitable as we head off on our holidays or simply try to get on with our daily journeys. Give yourself extra time to catch flights, ferries or trains and always check before you set off for the latest traffic information. The worst delays on our main roads are caused by breakdowns, incidents and accidents. Make sure that you and your vehicle are prepared for anything that might happen out there. Keep calm and motor on!”
