Roadworthiness of vehicle

You should ensure that your vehicle is always in a roadworthy condition, not just before you go away for the holidays, but always!

This means that all parts of the vehicle are in perfect working condition, including the lights as well as windscreen wipers. If any part of your vehicle is faulty or not fully functioning, avoid going away until you have attended to it. Take your motor vehicle for a roadworthiness check if you are unsure about the condition of it.
