Wild with Fireworks

The Good Garage Scheme shares this week's tips from IAM Roadsmart's head of driving, Richard Gladman ahead of this weekend's bonfire celebrations.
  • Dress for the weather but avoid wearing welly boots for driving
  • Have a designated driver if you are planning on drinking
  • If travelling together with a noisy group, ensure you are able to maintain concentration
  • Protect pets and never leave them in a car near a fireworks display in case they become agitated
  • If travelling with fireworks, keep them in a safe container in the boot removing any temptation for passengers to interfere with them when you are driving

Richard said, "Fireworks can be great fun, but they can also bring out the wild side in some people. Keep alert and watch out for unusual behaviour such as kids throwing fireworks into traffic. A bit of planning and a lot of common sense will go a long way into making sure your night goes with a bang and isn’t just a damp squib.”
