Tips to Keep Your Car Running This Winter

6 Tips to Stay Alert When Driving

Many believe that we can safely continue to travel whilst feeling our eyelids becoming heavy and concentration begin to wonder. Because of this, we do not only put ourselves at risk of having an accident, but also all other road users. Most have done the simple things such as turning up the radio and opening the window, in an effort to keep ourselves awake and alert, however, these tactics don’t often come as a distraction rather than improving your concentration.
