A 5% drop in hydration levels can cause a drop of up to 30% in concentration levels — that’s why when driving you should always have a bottle of water in your vehicle.
Here are some easy, useful tips, for driving in hot weather:
- Keep a bottle of water in the vehicle, a 5% drop in hydration levels can cause a drop of up to 30% in concentration levels.
- Keep windscreens clean as dirt and marks can amplify sun glare. Have access to, and wear, a clean pair of sunglasses while driving.
- Keep the vehicle’s coolant topped up and turn the engine off when struck in traffic, to help prevent it from overheating.
