Driving Your Car Or Van May Be A Little More Dangerous



There’s a grand stretch in the evenings” is a comment that I hear a lot at the moment. I for one am looking forward to being able to go for a walk or sit out in the garden after work in the evening sunshine.

As the evenings get longer and people get more active, here are a few things to bear in mind when driving your car or van in the late afternoon or evening.


Keep An Eye Out For The Following:


  • Pedestrians – with longer evenings people are more likely to get out for a walk.


  • Cyclists – with dry weather and more daylight you can expect an increase in people out for a leisurely cycle or people training for that summer triathlon.


  • Children – kids will have more time to play outside so watch out for that stray football on the road particularly in a built up area or housing estate.


  • Clubhouses – GAA & soccer training sessions are on most evenings. So reduce your speed when approaching a training ground as there will be increased activity in these areas at this time of year.


  • Leaving your vehicle unattended? – lock your belongings in the boot or take them with you – don’t put your handbag under the seat.
