Drivers are being encouraged to plan their journey in advance. This includes ensuring all necessary vehicle checks are conducted, as well as factoring in rest stops before they set off on any long journey. 

The TRIP elements of the campaign are: 

  • Top up – fuel/battery, oil, and screen wash 
  • Rest – plan your rest stops every two hours 
  • Inspect – tyre pressure and tread 
  • Prepare – for all weather conditions.
