What to check on your car daily

A car is a sophisticated piece of machinery, although it is commonplace and therefore taken for granted by many there are considerable elements working together to make it work.

And if one element does not work then it can affect your safety on the road or of course cause the car to break down. It is important that you check things on a regular basis in order to ensure the vehicle is working and safe to drive.

These are the core elements that it is recommended that you check on a daily basis:

The tyres: you should walk around the car before setting off to ensure that the tyres are not flat etc

Lights and indicators: check that these are functioning correctly and not obscured by dirt and grime, particularly if you've been on a long journey or in muddy conditions

Windscreen / windows: ensure these are clean and the view is not obstructed. If you've been on the motorway in summer the windscreen may be covered in fly splats

- Windscreen washer bottle: monitor the levels of this regularly to ensure it is topped up

- Brakes: check your breaks once you move off as soon as you can

- Luggage: ensure anything being carried by the vehicle is fixed firmly in place
